Sight and Sound Multimedia Slideshow – June 15, 2017

Sight and Sound Multimedia Slideshow – Presentations by Members


Our regular club meeting for the month of June will be on Thursday, June 15, 2017.  This will be a different type of meeting because LVPC will showcase our member’s work!

Here’s a terrific opportunity to put your photographs to music! At the next club meeting, June 15, we’re presenting member-produced slideshows. Every member is welcome, so submit your slideshow by Midnight, Thursday, June 1, 2017. You can “Dropbox” your slideshow to noting your name and title and length of slideshow.

Here are some guidelines and suggestions to keep in mind when putting together your show:

  • Software: Lightroom has a slideshow module or Google slideshow software and find something that works for you. ProShow Gold ($70)is one of the best
  • Format should be MP4 or MOV
  • Keep the show approximately 2 – 3 minutes in length
  • Figure about 3 to 4 seconds per slide
  • For a total of 30 to 50 images
  • Include an opening slide with your name, title of the show and music credit
  • Sort out the order of your images before launching the slideshow software
  • Match the music to the images. In other words, have a clear relationship between what’s being heard with what’s being seen
  • To give your slideshow a strong, recognizable style, it’s important to be selective and consistent about the effects choices (and other style elements like fonts & colors) used in your slideshow.
  • Based on your images, pay attention to dark or light background effect styles
  • After you think the show is done, take a break and look at it again in a day or two. You may find it still needs tweaking
  • Use Dropbox to send your slideshow to by midnight, Friday, June 9. Please note your name and the title and length of slideshow by midnight, Friday, June 9

We look forward to seeing your work!
