4K Slideshow Maker is a freeware made for Windows, Mac and Linux to create slideshow easily within a few steps only. Basically it only takes two easy clicks to make a beautiful one. After you add photos you can instantly convert them to a slideshow. Music background can also be added if you want to. Users can load photos either from their computers or instagram.
After launching the application, you can add images by clicking the plus button on the middle of the interface or clicking the “Add Photos” to load pictures from your hard drive or–if you want to add pictures from Instagram–clicking the “Add Instagram” button on the toolbar. You will be able to see the total number of images you have added into the program. The number can be seen at the bottom bar of the interface.
Each photo can be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise. This can be done by clicking on an image and then clicking on the small arrow button which can be found at the bottom right corner of the image. Or, just press Ctrl+G to rotate it counterclockwise and Ctrl+H to rotate it clockwise.
Users can also move each image position by dragging and dropping the picture within the working area.
Next, if you want to add some background music, just click on the “Change Music” button on the toolbar. Choose one audio file and load it. It supports mp3, wav, m4a, wma, flac, ape, wav and ogg audio formats.
Click the Settings button at the top right of the interface to open the window. Here you can get more stuff to adjust such as photo duration and transition duration, apply Ken Burns effect, use face detection technology, choosing video format, video aspect and video quality, and finally set the destination folder to save the output and give a proper name to the slideshow. Click Close to go back to the main interface.
Now you can preview it to take a look at how it will look like before you really save it. Click the “Show Preview” button on the toolbar and then play the slideshow.
If you’re satisfied with how it looks, close the preview window and then click “Make Slideshow” button to create slideshows from the images.
