You do not need to spend hours to figure out how the software works as just a few clicks will help you create a slideshow presentation with audio which is close to perfect.
The program lets you set the desired resolution for images and adapt them for a slideshow even if all of them were uploaded in different formats, sizes and quality.
Besides, you can keep an original aspect ratio of the images to prevent their stretching or distortion. Otherwise, choose the Scale to fit option to adapt the file for the size of your screen.
It is possible to set transition effects between the images to make the slideshow fancier. There are 26 effects available, for example Pixelate, Mosaic Spiral, Wipe, Zoom, and many more.
If you do not care about the type of the effect, choose the Random option and the program will set a random effect. If you do not want to use any effects whatsoever, choose the None option and files will be displayed without transition effects.
You can use different effects for each slide or set the same effect for all the files.
It is possible to add text per each slide of a slideshow.
The position of the text, its font, color and the color of text's background can be set per each slide individually or for all the slides at once.
The feature to burn DVD or CD with the created video slideshows is also available in Icecream Slideshow Maker.
The possibility to add multiple audio files to create a playlist is available along with the option to loop audio.
After a slideshow is created, the users can upload the video files to YouTube, Google Drive and Dropbox accounts. This can be also done from the History panel of Icecream Slideshow Maker.
Icecream Slideshow Maker is beautifully designed and appears to be an eye candy. Coupled with intuitive interface, its design makes the program a pleasure to use.
