Creating slideshows of your photos is a breeze with this application

By Daren Garius

On Thursday, September 18, 2014

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.

Pros

  • Simple program and easy to operate
  • Adding narration and background music is a breeze

Cons

  • Wide screen format is not available

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
