    Simple and powerfull tool

    • Good addition. Great list of slideshow creators compiled.
      If you don’t already have music or need more options, download free from http://www.needmusic.com/. Thousands of tracks. Yes free!

    • Yes, I started using this program and thought it was wonderful, until I tried to add a 16th photo. I have at least a hundred for this slideshow. I won’t let you add any more unless you pay. A lot of these do that. I would like to find one that’s COMPLETELY free.

    Do NOT use Slide.ly, they force you to follow their recommended users. Don’t waste your time with this one…

    • Daniel Roads

      Wrong Daniel, there’s a clear ‘skip’ button on the top line… 😉 nothing in the ‘follow’ is mandatory, next time some attention to detail before commenting on this awesome totally free app! following people is always a choice and never mandatory.

      • Jane M

        I tried to skip this clicking the NEXT button but it still circles back to it. Very frustrating.

  • Hello.
    Thank you, it is very informative. I would like to complete this list. Recently, I`ve found a very effective tool for slideshow making. It is simple in use. There are free options. The result is always perfect. I am excited!… Of course, You can create slideshow online, as there many sites suggesting to choose a design and upload your photos, then your order is processed either by designers or by some software. Another option is to download a program and deal with on
    your own (spending time on setup, training and montage).
    Here is an article from Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slide_show
    You can also watch a little video with overview of online services of slideshow

    Great list thanks! Tried Picovideo nice but Slide.ly rocks – was able to do a few of them 100% free which is awesome – and also stumbled upon their other tools (the collage was brilliant also free!) and Promo which is paid for business videos I’m giving it a try!
