Tips, tutorials & inspiration for making slideshows


What’s Your Favorite Style?

Slide Styles have changed the way people create their slideshows with ProShow. Their ability to instantly transform photos, captions and video clips into cool animations and layouts, has condensed what might have taken hours or days of work, into a couple clicks of the mouse. Since their unveiling we’ve released 11 Effects Packs totalling over 1,000 effects.

With all those options available, you’re bound to have a favorite or two. Maybe it’s one you built yourself or a tried and true built-in or add-on style that you love. Share the name your favorite Slide Style or Transition in the comments below to be entered to win a $20.00 Photodex store credit you can use on whatever you’d like on!

Here are some of our staff favorites!

Old Film Projector

Old Film Projector from StylePack 2 adds flickering light and specs of dust that make your photos and videos look like scenes out of an old-time movie.



The Cloud transition from Transition Pack 1 works great for vacation or travel photos. Landscape photos or simple aerial shots taken from an airplane window come to life with the addition of this sweeping cloud effect.



We love the simple, album-like layout in the effect Troika, from StylePack 4. Use this effect across a number of slides to keep a consistent and clean feel for your shows.


Sum of the Parts

The Sum of the Parts style from StylePack 3 automatically tiles in a cool block collage out of any photo. A really neat show-stopper!


Wedding 09 Single

This elegant effect from StylePack Weddings, features your photo set against a beautiful silvery background, while a heart shape gracefully draws into view, surrounding the photo (or video). Perfect for wedding or engagement photos.

We’d love to hear from you! What’s your favorite effect?
