SoundSlides: A Quick Tool for Making Slideshows

SoundSlides_logo Recently I purchased SoundSlides, a software program designed for photojournalists who want to tell their stories with pictures easily and quickly.  You open a folder of .jpeg pictures and an .mp3 sound file in SoundSlides and the program handily makes the slides into a show whose length coincides with the length of the sound file.  You can move the slides around in the order of your choosing, and impart to each a caption, and movement too, if you wish.  When you click on the “export” button the program prepares a folder of files which, with an FTP program, you can then upload to a server. SoundSlides has excellent online help files for embedding your slideshows in blogs or other web pages, or converting them into video files (.mov) for uploading to popular social network sites like YouTube and Facebook. Slideshows made with SoundSlides have excellent clarity, and can be set to play large, or even full screen. Have a look at this recent Soundslides show I produced for a Christian educator at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware.

  1. Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
