Using Quotes Effectively in your Video Slideshows

slideshow quotes

Have you ever used a quote in a slideshow? A well-placed quote can help introduce a show, break up the monotony of a long series of images and interject a feeling or emotion. Wedding, portrait, sports and even travel slideshows are all great candidates for using quotes.

Adding quotes to a ProShow slideshow is easy. Either type a quote directly onto a slide and use the built-in tools to control the font, color, size and placement or create a graphical text image in Photoshop to bring in as a new slide.

Below are some of our favorite quotes to use in slideshows and a sample video.

Great Quotes for Slideshows:

  • ‘Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.’ – Aristotle
  • ‘Find joy in the journey.’
  • ‘Wherever you go, go with all your heart.’ – Confucius.
  • ‘A little step may be the beginning of a great journey.’
  • ‘With you I am home.’
  • ‘Family. Like branches on a tree, we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.’
  • ‘Life is better with friends.’
  • ‘The best love stories have no endings.’
  • ‘When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.’ – William Shakespeare
  • ‘Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and Dreams are forever.’ – Walt Disney
