Icecream Slideshow Maker is a free software that you can use to create impressive slideshows from your favorite photos. Thus, whether a business presentation or you simply want to share your vacation photos, this could be a handy tool. It is possible to add fancy transition effects and background audio. The tool is easy to use. The interface is very intuitive and does not require the user to be tech savvy at all. Creating a multi-media slideshow with music in just a few minutes is easily possible. You simply need to assemble photos, configure slide transitions and durations, add a suitable mp3 file, preview the project and simply press the “Create” button and the job is done. You can select a suitable transition for each slide. A wide variety of transition effects: pixelate, mosaic, zoom in and zoom out, vertical stretch and more are available. All of them could be the same too. Same goes for the transition time. Select the time between slides individually or simply set them to be the same.
A big review area helps checkout the overall effect of the show. The full project need not be completed in one go. The work is saved every time you quit it. You are able to restart from the point you left off. You can add offset and fade effects to the music you choose to add to the show. True HD resolution of 1920x1080 is possible. The program allows you to set the desired resolution for images and adapt them for a slideshow. The uploaded material could be in different formats, sizes and quality. The original aspect ratio of the images can be maintained to prevent their stretching or distortion. The show video can be uploaded to the sites like YouTube for immediate sharing. This is a very good tool.
