When it comes to slideshow creation, it seems that there are two distinct schools of thought: a) visual effects can be used to spice up your shows and maintain viewer interest for a longer period of time, or b) your images should be the focus of the show and effects should be used sparingly, if at all. But there’s nothing preventing you from getting the best of both worlds, so long as you choose your effects wisely. Today I’m going to show you a simple type of effect for ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer that can keep your slideshow visually interesting without detracting from the imagery.

ProShow has built-in support for uploading your slideshows to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and Smugmug. YouTube and Facebook are household names at this point, but Vimeo and Smugmug are two services you may want to look into if you’re not already familiar with them. Today I’m going to give you a rundown of the pros and cons of each service so that you know which one is right for you.
Facebook has rolled out two great new features for page owners that offer you more ways to showcase your videos to clients. The two new features are:
A Featured Video is a video you select to feature on your Facebook page. It will appear in an extra large format on top of the video section and will appear on the front of your Facebook page, under the ‘About’ section. You can see an example of this on the Photodex facebook page. Video Playlists allow you to create custom playlists of videos you’ve uploaded to Facebook.
These new video features are incredibly useful if you use video slideshows on Facebook to promote your business. For example, set your featured video to be one of your latest and greatest video slideshows and create playlists for the different types of products or services you offer. Make a wedding photography playlist, high school seniors playlist, family portraits playlist, etc..
Have you checked out the new Featured Video and Video Playlist features for your page yet? We’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
Anyone who makes photo slideshows as a hobby or professionally knows that the quality of the presentations can vary quite a bit — we’ve seen videos range from tacky & over-the-top ridiculous, to stunningly gorgeous. Thankfully, you do not need to be a grand master of slideshows (or have tons of spare time) to turn out beautiful videos with ProShow.
The core principles for making any slideshow better can easily be learned and applied by anyone at any level, amateur or pro. Read on to see what tips our design team has to offer for different aspects of the slideshow creation ‘process’, from content prep to adding finishing touches.
It’s a new year and it’s time to start fresh and tackle those photo archiving projects you’ve been putting off. We reached out to Cathi Nelson, the founder and president of APPO to see what tips she had for getting things done and doing a better job of documenting life in the new year.
In conclusion, why is this so important? Decades of research have shown that most happy families communicate effectively. But talking doesn’t mean simply “talking through problems,” as important as that is. Talking also means telling a positive story about yourselves and the best way to tell a story is with your family photos. If you want a happier family, create, refine and retell the story of your family’s life with slideshows, videos, wall displays and photo books. Those acts alone will increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come.
