Gilisoft Slideshow Movie Creator can create videos out of your photograph collection. If there’s only one thing to say about this software tool, it’s definitely that it’s very easy to use. It has a very nice interface, in which the workflow has been arranged in a wizard-like fashion. So, it all becomes as easy as importing a group of pictures, configuring effects, adding a music background and exporting the results in a video format.
The application supports multiple picture formats as source; however, unlike other tools of the same type, it doesn’t allow importing videos. Besides importing photographs, you can also add captions to them. Although there are various transitions you can use, they are applied randomly. Fortunately, you can make the slideshow less boring by adding some kind of motion to the pictures. Also, the program supports various sound file formats that you can use as background. Finally, it can export the slideshow using an extensive list of output video formats, which are organized according to their supporting devices, so there’s no need to worry about compatibility issues.
All in all, I think that GiliSoft Slideshow Movie Creator is not worth its price. It’s true it has a very nice interface but it doesn’t go beyond that. In fact, there are multiple movie editors that can create much better slideshows even at no cost.
