You’ve got the best slideshow tool on the planet – it seems to do everything you could want. There are so many bells and whistles, you can’t wait to take advantage of them all and make a great looking slideshow.
Take a moment to fully understand your goal, which is to pass on a message and tell a story. Anything you do to confuse the message can ruin the viewer’s experience. Without care, you can even defeat the message completely.
Whether you’re showcasing a bunch of pictures of a trip or event, creating a quick-and-dirty slideshow or a multi-year epic project, your message should be your highest priority.
