Slide shows used to be something everyone looked forward to seeing. Well, that is unless you were the person who was going to be tortured with seeing the amazing slide show with a carousel of 250 slides of your neighbors trip to a childhood vacation spot. Most likely after slide #16 you had enough.
Slideshows put to music are pretty incredible. They look polished but need quite a few photos to pull it off. I used Photo Peach for my slide show platform, although Animoto and Fotobabble looked equally as intriguing. The trick is to collect enough photos that you can tell your story and keep the speed of the music to correlate with the photos. Originally I found the Beatles version of The Long and Winding Road, which would have been perfect to align with my slide show. But there’s that pesky ruling about youtube videos and music.
Here’s what I came up with:’
