I am making my own slideshow and have some questions about slideshows in general.

 

I assume you make it as long as a song, but to make it all fit in that song

1. How many photos (on average) should there be?

2. how many seconds should each photo be displayed for?

 

I am sure I will come up with more, but that is it for now.

 

Thanks

I think 3-5 seconds per picture. I usually like faster slideshows. I make mine with windows movie maker & set the pictures to show for varying lengths of time. That way scenery shots can be quicker and really good pictures can stay up longer. You can also make them change in beat with the music.

 

A 5 minute song would take 60-100 pictures if they each showed for 5-3 seconds. If I got my numbers right (I always mess up by a magnitude of 10).

Christine, I have no idea! I've made a 25 min slideshow with about 4 or 5 songs and to be honest, I just played with the speed as I went. It took me about 2 months! But I turned out great. i used MS movie maker and it makes it really simple for you to use.

 

My tip, upload all the pictures you want to use in the order you want, then upload the song. Once you've done that you can play with the speed.

You can set the default on movie maker to a set time. It's usually at 5 seconds. But you can change it so all the pictures go at that set time. You don't have to change them individually. I'm looking up how to do that right now.

I am finding that in movie maker you have to change your advanced settings before you insert new pictures, but once they are in you have to manually change each one.

My movie maker keeps freezing up on me.
