How do you add the music to the slide show?


Dear annettesamto

First do the photos. When you have finished that, click on the "Next" button at the bottom of the window. Now look for your music files by clicking on the "Select Audio Files" button in the "Soundtrack" section. For example, go to "My Documents" and then select the "My Music" folder and click on "Open". Select the music file you want and once again click on "Open". The track you have chosen should now appear in the white area in the "Soundtrack" section. Repeat this to choose more music tracks until you are satisfied with your selection. To delete any tracks from the list, select it in the "Soundtrack" section and then click on the little dustbin to the right and just above the white area where the names of the music tracks are.
Hint: Try to get the combined length of all your music tracks ("Total audio time") close to the "Duration of Slide Show". Then decide how long (in seconds) you want every photo to be displayed before the slide show moves on to the next photo. All your photos will be displayed for the same amount of seconds. In the "Duration" section, at "Set Duration", type in the amount of seconds you would roughly want your photos to be displayed for (for example 8 seconds). If the "Duration of Slide Show" and "Total audio time" is the same or very close, you can ignore the part where it says "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack". However, if the difference is several seconds or more, click on "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack". This will ensure that your slide show (photos) ends when the music ends. It means that your photos may now be displayed for slightly less or more seconds than the amount you indicated, but at least the soundtrack and the photos will end together.
When you are satisfied with your soundtrack, click on "Finish" at the bottom of the window. If the computer asks you if you want to replace an existing file, click on "Yes". The soundtrack window dissapears. Now click on "File" at the top left of the window and choose "Save Project".

You can listen to your soundtrack by clicking on tab 3 ("Produce") and then on the "Enter" button on the remote control.

You should be aware that some music files may not work with SlideShow Expressions, particularly some files that have been downloaded from the internet, for example through iTunes. This has to do with copy-protection and causes some tracks not to play properly. As a rule, though, mp3 files should work fine, as well as tracks ripped from CDs, like wma files. The User Guide gives a list of all the supported music files. The User Guide is on the install disc. To find it, insert your install disc and click on the relevant link that appears, or you can go to "My Computer", right-click on the CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore" to look for it on the install disc; it is a pdf file.

I hope this was helpful. The best of luck to you.

Embed the imovie slideshow in web with video to flash converter for mac



Want to transform your interesting photos into entertaining photo show? Would like to create an elegant picture slideshow of a recent wedding party? Or capture the excitement of the birthday party to share on your blog? Or create a commercial presentation with photos on your homepage to promote your business? However, you don't know which software can help you to make a customiz picture slideshow.
If you are a mac user, I recommend you to use imovie which is free and powerful. Although designed primarily to capture and edit digital video, imovie also has the ability to import still images and employ professional-looking transitions like wipes and dissolves, add audio and text narration, and lay down a soundtrack that works in conjunction with the photos. By making full use of this feature, we can build a video with static photos.
Step1. Collect Photos and launch iMovie
Select photos you would like to add to your slideshow and click "iMovie" icon to open iMovie.
Step2. Create a new project
Right click on the Project Library, choose "New Project" in the menu. And input Project Name and select your favorite slideshow Theme. Hit "Create".
Step3. Import photos
Drag all collected photos into your iMovie window. Place them in the order you want them to appear.
Step4. Add effects to your photos
You can add music, text and transition to photo slideshow.
Step5. Export iMovie slideshow
Right click and choose "Export movie", select some parameters according to your requirement. Finally, you will find the exported movie is in M4V formats.

FLV is one of the most popular video files found on the internet. Therefore, when you finish your imovie slideshow and want put them to your site or get a bundle of M4V video clips to insert in your blog, you have to convert M4V to FLV with M4V to flash converter for mac.

Would like to trim music to fit slides and add naration


Hello, Wren

SlideShow Expressions is a very basic programme: simplicity is the key. It is designed to give instant results. Therefore, the things you can do with the photo's, music, etc. are very limited. No frills, no complicated editing. For example: no fading in or out of music; no cutting a music track down to a certain length, etc. Also, the programme doesn't allow you to have a different time setting for every photo. Whatever duration time you select (say 9 seconds), it goes for each photo.
As a result you would typically go about adding your music tracks as follows:
After you have added all the photo's that would make up the whole slideshow, make a rough estimate of how long each photo should be displayed on the screen. Type this number in the open slot (for seconds). You can now get an idea of how long the entire slideshow will be: the duration will be showed at the bottom. Now, choose tracks that, together, will just about (more or less) account for the whole length of the slideshow. When you've added them one by one, click on the option to fit the slideshow to the soundtrack. Obviously this could change the amount of seconds that each photo will be displayed. That's about it. Play around with tracks of different lenghts and see what the time duration would be if you were to fit the slideshow to this altered track length.
Be careful about the music you use. This programme (as would many others) may develop problems when using downloaded music, because this music is usually protected in some way (for example, tracks downloeded from iTunes are known to cause problems: they may not play or sound bad).
Also, it is always good to read the User Guide. If you have a legitimate copy of the programme, the User Guide will be included on the install disc in pdf format. You can look for it by exploring the install disc or by simply clicking on the relevant link after you've inserted the install disc.

I hope this was helpful. Best of luck to you. From: 11407336.

I cannon figure out how to add music from my computer to the slide show....please help me....I have 5 songs on my desktop and I cannot seem to figure out how to get them to slideshow...


Best jbannon257

There could be a number of reasons why you're having trouble adding music files to your slide shows. First I'll lay out the procedure and afterwards I'll give some hints / a link to individualsoftware.com where problems with audio files are discussed.

The procedure (adding music files using SlideShow Expressions):
The programme opens and you are automatically in tab 1: "Add Media".
Click on "Create New Slide Show". Click on "Add Photos"; tell the programme where the photos are, select them, insert them, change their positions if necessary.
Now:
1. Click on "Next" at the bottom of the screen.
2. At "Soundtrack", click "Select Audio Files", then tell the programme where the music files are located on your computer, click to highlight a specific music file, click on "Open". The music file you selected now appears in the Soundtrack window. Repeat this until all the music files you want appear in the Soundtrack window. (You can delete any of them by clicking to highlight any specific file and then click on the little rubbish can icon.) As you go along, the total audio time for the slide show / chapter is displayed as well as the "Duration of Slide Show".
3. In the "Duration" section, you have the option to set the length of time you want per slide (seconds) - usually 8 to 10 seconds is best. (All your slides will follow this instruction; you can't set the duration of individual slides to a different time.) At "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack", you alter the duration of the slides to fit the length of the soundtrack. (This cancels out the previous seconds-per slide setting.) You must therefore choose music tracks that, when added together, will approximately span the whole length of the slide show and then you can fine-tune this by clicking the "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack" option.
4. When you are satisfied with your choice of music tracks and the length of your slide show, click on "Finish".

Issues with music files when using SlideShow Expressions
A.
According to the User Guide (section 3-3) - included on the install disc as a pdf file - the supported audio formats are: mp3, wma, wav, ra. Make sure that your computer also meets all of the requirements (on the box).
B.

Photo & Video Expressions is not compatible with audio files that have been protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) functionality. Most audio files purchased online through Internet music retailers like iTunes, Urge, or Rhapsody are encrypted with some form of DRM. Similarly, audio files that have been extracted from a CD or DVD (the process known as "ripping") using certain media applications (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.) often have default settings that encrypt the files extracted.

There is no way to used DRM audio files purchased from online music retailers with Photo & Video Expressions. However, if you want to used music and audio files that you have extracted from your CD collection, then all you have to do is change the ripping setting in your media application before you extract the files to your computer.
Go to the following site to read about how to change your ripping settings:

http://www.individualsoftware.com/support/frequently_asked_questions.html

Type your question OR (below):

"Photo & Video Creativity": choose "SlideShow Expressions" from drop-down menu, click "Go".

A window appears with options on problems, e.g. "Why aren't my audio files showing?"; "Why won't my music files work?" Click to read.
The best of luck to you. From: 11407336.

Imported professional photos with high resolution/pixels. Are now grainy in the presentation. Looks like pixels are missing.


I've had a problem relating to the sizes of my photos. It appears that once you use photos of too high a resolution, and the project is of rather lengthy, SlideShow Expressions develops problems - I wasn't able to burn to disc and the soundtrack contained distortions when listening to it in preview mode. Let me put this into context. My first project contained 388 photos, with some photos larger than 2 MB, but mostly averaging 300 KB or so. No problem - it burned successfully. My second project had 305 photos, with just about all over 2 MB. No problem - burned successfully. However, when I tried to burn my third project, there was no end to my frustration. The problem lied with a combination of two factors: firstly, it was a very large project: 466 photos; secondly, the project included photos larger than 2 MB, quite a few of these were abou 3.5 MB. It was this combination of photo size and project length that caused my writer drive to fail whenever I tried to burn this project. It was solved by resizing the photos - everything under 500 KB. This doesn't necessarily mean that the quality of your photos will be compromised. I used Microsoft Office Picture Manager and visually there is no quality difference between the original photos and the photos in the slideshow project. Maybe this helps a bit. Experiment with photo size. (You can always add a data disc with the original photos (eg. jpg-format) to your project.)

I made a powerpoint presentation with PP2003, first added 6 slides, then added another 20. When I add music to the presentation, the music stops at the 6th slide. HELP!


To make a sound continue through multiple or all slides, follow these steps:
  • Go to the slide where you want to begin your audio track (defaulted as the first slide), and select Insert -> Movies and Sounds -> Sound from File to insert the sound.
  • After you click OK, you can see a message pop up asking how you want the sound to start in slide shows. Click Automatically.
  • Select Slide Show ->Custom Animation to enter the Custom Animation pane. Your soundtrack is listed below in the pane.
  • In the drop-down list of the sound, choose Effect Options. Then the Play Sound interface appears. In the Effect tab, click the radio button beside Stop Playing After XXX slides (which indicates how many slides you want this song to play across) to enter the number of slides you intend to add. For example, you can enter a number from 1 to 999 for this field. Then the sound will play throughout the specified slides.

  • custom-sound-2002.gif

    play-sound-2003.gif
  • Next, check the settings in the Timing tab. To play automatically, you can set to Start After Previous with a 0-second delay. Click OK to exit the dialog box.
  • Then go to Sound Settings tab, adjust the sound volume as you like. You can also tick to hide sound icon during slideshow if you don't want it appear.
Now you can play the soundtrack from the very beginning to the end of your slideshow.
