Create Your Own Presentations and Short Movies with This Program

By Sam James

On Wednesday, January 21, 2015

I like this program because with Microsoft Photo Story 3, I can now create my own slideshow and own short movies. Not only that, I can also add a lot of new effects, narrations, and background music with my presentation to make it catchier. Once I am done with my work, I can now play it on my PC using Windows Media Player, since we are using the WMV format. In addition, what I love about this is that it is not that difficult to use because its interface is just simple so you will know how the program works. Plus, you can create the things that you want with the help of its new features and useful tools. I think the only thing that I do not want with this one is that it lags sometimes. Another thing that I would like to add, the maximum number of the images that can be imported by batch is only 200. All in all, this is a great program.

Pros

  • Very simple and attractive interface
  • It is very user friendly

Cons

  • The program lags and crashes sometimes
