Foto2AVI is a free tool to help you create video slideshows from unlimited number of photos. The converted pictures can be customized with available effects, subtitles, transitions, animations, and more. Foto2AVI supports external audio tracks for creating video slideshows with complimentary audio to add vigor to your sideshows.

Support for Dolby Surround Sound 5.1 is also available, as well as integrated audio editing. Foto2AVI also has option to create video slideshows in HD formats.
To get started, select one or more images to create a video slideshow or load a previously saved project. Projects can be saved for editing and modifying later on in the native f2a format from Save button.
You can configure input configurations such as default duration of each picture, aspect ratio (for both audio and video) and enable random transitions from the Input tab in Settings.
The Output tab provides similar options to select a video format for converting the image files, disabling compression for a lossless AVI and setting a custom bit-rate.
