To get you started we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites from the Portraits Effects Pack to make your photos pop and look great. Your slideshow can be a fun keepsake or used as a great promotional asset for your business.

1. Portraits Vintage

This vintage fx adds a small frame to your photo and creates a black and white duplicate in the background. A classy and simple effect to showcase those images. Not a fan? There’s also a ton more to choose from like title photos, just the frames, and even the option for 2 or 3 photos per slide style.

2. Portraits Scrapbook

The scrapbook section is full of vibrant colors and playful designs that are perfect for children’s portraits or any family occasions. It also comes with title slides, multi-image options, and more.

3. Portraits Glam

Add one of these subtle but elegant effects if you’re using fashion, weddings, or engagement photos. The gold trim and light chevrons in these effects will add a little burst of fun to make your photos come to life.

4. Portraits Geometric

The geometric styles are full of light colors and shapes that add a cool twist to your photos. These are perfect for any of your casual portraits or anything else you feel that works out just perfectly when they are combined.

5. Portraits Minimal

If you’re looking for very minimal effects that aren’t distracting from your photos then check these out. Gradient lines on solid backgrounds will give your photos a very sleek and clean feel.
