How to Make a Video with Pictures and Music (Slideshow)

A video you make from your favorite photos
will always be unique and special. This is why it makes a perfect birthday or
wedding gift for your loved ones. A slideshow is also a great way to get your
point across in a business presentation or school project. Watch this tutorial to learn how to make amazing
videos from your photos! Step 1. Open the Movavi Video Editor program If the software is not already installed on your computer, click here to download a free
version and follow the tutorial steps Step 2. Add photos to the program Click Add Media Files to choose the desired photos. All files will be added on the Timeline board. Reorder the photos to create a complete story. Step 3. Set up smooth transitions and slide durations Click the Transitions tab and choose from the extensive library of artistic transitions
using the preview window. Then click the Add transitions to all clips
button – in the pop-up window, locate the chosen transition style on the list, set the
transition and slide duration, and click OK. The settings will be applied to all slides. If you want more variety, you can select different
transitions between individual slides – make another selection from the library, drag the
icon and drop it between two slides. To change the duration of a stand-alone transition,
right click on the transition and choose the Transition Properties. You can also change the duration of each slide
manually – simply drag the left or right edge of the slide. Step 4. Add captions and titles Open the Titles tab and choose your preferred preset – from simple titles to artistic
captions with detailed backgrounds and animation. Drag the icon to the Timeline and drop it
above a slide. You can adjust the duration by trimming the
caption clip the same way you did with the slides. Double click the caption clip and enter the
desired text in the preview window. You can also at this time rescale and reposition
titles and backgrounds, change fonts, colors, animation speed, and other settings. When you’re finished, click Apply. Step 5. Set up the background music Go to the Import tab, click Add Media Files and choose an audio file. You can have several audio tracks playing
at the same time – for example, to combine background music, narration and sound effects. Trim the audio the same way you did with the
slides to make the background music length the same as the video track. Finally, preview your slideshow. If you like it, click the Export button to
save the result as a video file. Download a free version of Movavi Video Editor
and start making amazing slideshows from your pictures! Like the video? Have a question? Please leave us a message in the comment section

    It has some cool tools, but believe me I got very stressed out with this program. They made it confusing between Mac and Window versions, the basic version and the plus version. I had to email them a lot to ask for Active Key and emailed again again to ask for Registration Key in order to export my video…I wish I did not waste my time and money for this shit!
