These days I saw many questions about how to create slideshows with photos and videos to enjoy on the iPod. Here's how I did it with DVD Slideshow Builder. Follow along and make your own iPod slideshow, complete with your favorite photos, videos, music and many special effects.
Step 1, Create a Project and Import Photos and Videos
First thing we need to do is click the File button to create a new project whose output format we choose is MP4 (iPod). Then click the New Slideshow button to create a new slideshow or more.
After that, we can click Add Pictures or Video to add photos & videos to the new slideshow.
Now, we can double click the picture or video to preview and edit it to get some effect we want, such as caption, music and stretch effect.
Also, if we want to decorate the photos to get some effect such as filter, frame, art word, mask effect, we can use the tool bar right of the Add Pictures or Video button.
Step 2, Add Transition and Video Effect
DVD Slideshow Builder has many video transitions and video effects for your choice. We can click Video Transition to add video transitions to the slideshow. They are four different types of effects: Fade, Slide, Slide extend and advanced. Then we can click Video Effect to apply video effects to the slideshow. To add an effect, we can just drag it to the photo to which we want add the effect in the slideshow storyboard below.
Step 3, Add Music
Now, we can add background music to the slideshow. Click the Import to add music to the current slideshow. And we can edit, play, delete, up and down the selected audio file.
Step 4, Preview Slideshow
After we did the works above, we can preview the slideshow now. We can see the numeric buttons which represent the slideshow numbers in our project. Click any of the numeric buttons to play the slideshow the button represents. A numeric button is enabled only when its represented slideshow exits.
Step 5, Generate Slideshow
Congratulations! Here comes the final part. If we have not chosen the output format in Step 1, we choose MP4 as the output format for iPod here. Then we can set the output properties such as output path, video and audio parameters. Also, we can choose Save to iPod to directly transport slideshow to iPod without install iTunes or other software. But we need to connect our PC and iPod first. Then click Start to burn. Just few minutes later, we can share the stunning slideshows with our photos, videos and other effects on our iPod.
