About This Class

Do you possess images that evoke memories you'd like to retain... maybe even immortalize?

Family?  Friends?  Vacations?  Marriages?  Births?  Even deaths?

What about photo albums?  Event announcements?  Or corporate advertisements?

ProShow is the best Windows based software tool for producing professional quality image and video slideshows.

For fun or for profit, in this one hour training course I will...

First, I'll demonstrate how to create a wedding video slideshow in just 6 minutes using ProShow themes to handle all the details.

Then, after showing you the finished wedding slideshow, I'll explain in detail just how I managed to create that slideshow in just 6 minutes using only 4 steps:

  • I.   Select Your Slideshow Theme Using the Wizard

  • II.  Organize and Select Your Art

  • III. Select and Time Your Music

  • IV.  Produce Your Finished Slideshow Video

In the first course project, you'll be guided through the process of creating your own ProShow theme based slideshow in just 6 minutes.

Additional video instruction explains how to upload your slideshow video to Youtube and share it in the Q&A section of this course (or Facebook).

Then we dig a little deeper:

  • I.   Free Images and File Organization

  • II.  Add Images to the Slide List

  • III. Apply a Style to Each Slide

  • IV.  Add Slide Captions

  • V.   Configure Transitions and Timing

  • VI.  Add Music and Adjust Total Timing

  • VII. Produce Your Finished Sideshow Video

Followed by a second, more detailed course project.

  • 1.5 hours

  • 2 Sections

  • 2 Projects.

And you're outta here!  Honestly, that's all I ask of you.

Oops!  I added another 1/2 hour of advanced information.  Enjoy!

By the end of this course you'll be a (relative) ProShow expert but still wanting more...

I'll see you in the classroom,
