New to ProShow Gold? Check out this quick run-through of the software that will get you up and running with your first slideshow in just a few minutes. Learn how to add photos and videos, choose music and FX and output your finished show.
Start with the ProShow Wizard
The Wizard is fast, easy and, basically builds a show for you with just a few clicks. When you open ProShow Gold, the very first thing you’ll see is the New Slide Show window. Select the Wizard icon, and click the Create button to get started.
Step 1. Add some content.
Begin building your show by adding some photos. Click the Add button to select images on your computer, or click Import to add content from a variety of social sites, such as Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. You can also import short video clips and add captions.
Step 2. Pick a song for your show.
Music adds a powerful, emotional element to your shows that your viewers will definitely connect with and enjoy. Add your own music, or choose a song from the brand new, ProShow Music Library, featuring over 200 royalty-free tracks!
Step 3. Select a theme for your show.
The theme determines whichFX will be used in your show. If you’re not really sure which theme to choose, try Always, Casual Modern, Classic Dark or Classic Light. These themes feature a very nice balance of effects that work for just about every type of content and occasion.
Step 4. Set the Tempo for your show.
The Energy Level determines how fast or how slow your show will be. By adjusting the slider, you can speed up your show and make FX happen quickly, or slow it down and give your viewers more time to enjoy your images.
Give your show a name, then click create and watch the Wizard do all the work of adding content and FX for you.
Step 5. Preview your show.
Once the Wizard is done, take a look at the Preview to make sure you like what you see. If something doesn’t look right, click the Try Again button to rebuild the show. You can also click the Back button if you want to add more content, or make changes to the Theme and Energy Level.
Step 6. Share Your Show
After the Wizard builds your show. Save your work and move on to sharing your show with your friends and family. In the main Workspace, click the Publish icon, and choose from the wide variety of sharing options, including:
- Upload a video directly to YouTube or Facebook.
- Burn your show to a DVD or Blu-Ray disc.
- Create a video file for your computer or portable devices.
