If you want to spice up your unforgettable photos and create a slideshow, there is no better program than Microsoft Photo Story 3. Aside from being free, this application will allow you to personalize your images. You can have an audiovisual presentation in just a few simple steps. What I love about it is that you can immediately edit your photos. If you want to crop, rotate or even add captions and titles, it is possible with this program. At the same time, you can even add sound effects and music to your work. It is very simple and easy to operate. It is great for beginners who want to explore the idea of making slideshows. The output is saved in WMV format but it is also possible to convert it to other formats. But in doing so, you need a third-party converter. If it is your first time to use this program, I suggest you check out the Help button so you can be familiar with all the options available in making slideshows of your photos. There is also a wizard that can assist you while making your presentation. Overall, Microsoft Photo Story 3 is a simple but amazing program.
