Creating a Spotlight Effect

Adding a spotlight effect on a photo can add drama, flair and excitement to your slideshow. With ProShow Producer, you can use this effect to highlight parts of an image, bring focus to certain subjects in a photo and create the illusion of a moving spotlight.

Using a combination of masks and vingnettes, you can easily achieve this cool effect.

Check out this article in our Knowledge Base for step by step instructions to learn how this is done. Once you’ve created your spotlight effect, save it as a Slide Style to re-use it in a future slideshow!
