Tips on Making Your Slideshow Perfect:

  • Keep the intro short and sweet. ‘A Story About Us‘, ‘Through the Years‘ or simply the name of you and your loved one ‘Jane + Bill‘.
  • Look for photos that span the years and include those in your slideshow. Tell the story of how you met or how your family has grown throughout the years.
  • To change things up, turn a few of your color photos into black and white and sprinkle them throughout your slideshow.
  • Use a typewriter style font, this will help make your video have that handmade feel and will add a bit of charm to your slideshow. (Tip: Courier is a common font that has the type-writer look)
  • For slides that contain two photos, think about which photos to use in those slots and make sure they have meaning being next to each other. Sometimes using a wide family shot in one and then cropping the same photo to just show holding hands or a close up of feet lined up can turn into a great layout.
