7 Montage FX for Your Slideshow Intros

Wall Scroll Title Backlit – Effects Pack 6

Want to give your slideshow introductions a little more excitement? Add a twist by using one of the multi-image montage FX! The ones with captions/headers work great for an opening or a finale, but we also have tons of multi-image montage FX that you can use without captions throughout the show for a nice surprise element. With just a little extra effort it’ll definitely grab the attention of your audience and keep it.

ProShow has a variety of built-in montage FX and an even wider selection available in the ProShow FX Packs. Check out a round-up of some of our favorite montages with captions below. If you’d like to try some without captions then click here: 5 Awesome Multi-Image Montage FX.
