Quick and easy slideshow making with audio
Icecream Slideshow Maker creates slideshow presentations with an audio background and saves them in MP4, AVI, MOV and WebM video formats. Intuitive interface makes all the available settings options easy to understand and helps successfully create a decent project. Drag & drop mechanism support makes the process even easier and quicker.
Icecream Slideshow Maker features a preview window for previewing each image with the applied transition effects. It makes the slideshow creation easier in case multiple images are processed at a time. To enable a preview window for a certain image, press the PLAY button over the image’s thumbnail.
Preview window for certain images would be activated automatically in case the transition effect was changed.
Slideshows upload to YouTube, Google Drive and Dropbox
Users can upload the created slideshows to their account on YouTube, Google Drive and Dropbox right from the History panel of Icecream Slideshow Maker. Select the slideshow in the History panel, click “UPLOAD” button and select the webservice for the further uploading.
Changing file position
Files imported for making a slideshow are added to the queue. There are two ways to change the files’ positions in the queue: by using the UP and DOWN arrows (an image to be moved has to be selected) or by dragging and dropping a file to a desired position. Other files’ positions in the queue will remain unchanged.
In case you want to place the images in a random order, it's possible to click the “Shuffle photos” and all the images that are currently added to the image queue will be shuffled.
Prior to creating a video slideshow in MP4, AVI, MOV and WebM format, a user can preview the entire project. It is possible to use the “Pause/Resume” and “Stop” controls and volume settings during the entire preview.
Setting configurations for a group of images
The program supports setting Time and Transition effect configurations for all the images in the queue. After applying these common settings for all the files, it is possible to change the same configurations for individual images as well.
Icecream Slideshow Maker offers 6 different types of resolutions for output files: 640х480, 800х600, 1024х768, 1280х1024, 1600х1200 and 1920х1080.
Changing transition duration
It is possible to set a desired duration of transition effects: 1, 2, or 3 seconds. Unlike the “Time” setting that stands for duration of a slide, this effect is common for the entire slideshow.
Scaling to fit
It’s also possible to stretch the images to make them fit the selected slideshow resolution even while working with small pictures.
Keeping original ratio
Users can opt for the “Original ratio” feature to prevent the distortion of the images.
Easy output file naming
After adding files to the image queue, Icecream Slideshow Maker automatically sets a default name for output presentation, which looks like “sshow_yymmdd_hhmmss”. Users can change the name at any moment before starting the process.
User can add one audio file and set it as a background music for the slideshow. The program supports MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC and OGG audio formats. Also, it’s possible to set a fade value (from 1 to 5 seconds) for the audio file.
Users can move the audio in the beginning of the slideshow up to 10 seconds in both directions from the beginning of the video part of the presentation with the help of the “Offset” option.
In case you're willing to create a long slideshow, there's an audio loop option that will repeat the added audio file during the playback of the visual part of the slideshow.
Resuming older projects from history
Each project made with Icecream Slideshow Maker can be easily resumed from the “History” panel. Select the desired slideshow from the list and click the “Resume project” button in the bottom right-hand side corner of the panel. After that, all the images used in that slideshow alongside with the assigned settings will be imported to the queue.
