Slideshow Activity

Discover the world around you and hone your photographic eye – put together a slide show of your adventure and share with your friends and family. 

To make your slideshow:

  1. Head out to your favorite neighborhood, take a seat and look around you – what do you see? What catches your eye? Take some photos with a camera or smartphone. Move to a new spot and repeat until you have a collection of photographs. To add some interest to your photos, consider changing your viewpoint, for example, hold your camera up high for a bird’s eye view or get low to the ground for an ant’s eye view; or play with zoom by zooming out wide to see more of the area or getting close to isolate and draw focus to your subject 

  1. Back at home or the studio, upload your pictures to a computer either into your pictures folder or to your desktop. Name your folder Things that catch my eye to find it easily. NOTE: these instructions are for a PC. 

  1. Next, open your folder and click on one of the photos. In the top right side, “edit and create” will appear. Expand the drop-down menu and find the “create a video with music” option – click on that. 

  1. Name your video with a fun and easy-to-search title and upload your photos by clicking on project library – select photos from your PC and then select all the photos you wish to. 

  1. You will notice your project has two boxes or views. The upper box is a video of your photos and the bottom half is the storyboard.  

  1. In the storyboard, you can add photos, rearrange your photos, add effects and apply filters. Play around until you are happy with the results.  

  1. Next, choose ‘add a title card’. Another box will open and will prompt you to add text, change the font and even change the background colour.  

  1. Next, select the music you want to hear while your slideshow is running. When considering music, think about the mood you want to share and the pace of the music. 

  1. Tinker with the video until you are satisfied with the result. Save your video! It is ready to be shared on your favorite social media app or is ready for exporting and sharing via email or other.
