So You Wanna Make a Slide Show?  


Last Thursday was our special meeting on Slideshows.  I've tried to capture all the links we talked about.  If I missed one or if you have any questions just use the Contact Us form to send an email and either Chuck, Joel or I will get back to you.

Joel did a presentation on creating a slideshow with a free program called FastStone Image Viewer.  You can download FastStone here: http://faststone.org/

Joel reminded everyone that if you plan to you music in your slideshows, make sure you have the proper rights to it.  He told us about a website where you can get public domain music: http://musopen.org

Next up was me (Kevin).  I did a slide show with Lightroom version 3.5.  You can download a trail version here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

I also created a slideshow with Adobe Elements 7.  I don't think you can get version 7 anymore, but you can  download a trail of version 10 here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

I also threw together a Picasa slideshow.  Picasa is free from Google.  You can find it at http://picasa.google.com

The final (and probably most impressive) presentation was by Chuck Rohn.  Chuck demonstrated ProShow Producer.  ProShow producer and ProShow Gold can be found at:   http://www.photodex.com/proshow/gold

Here's the slideshow that Chuck put together with Proshow Producer:
