HD Slideshow Maker can help you present your photos in a more pleasant way than manually browsing through them in a folder. The program has a straightforward interface, which will pose no problems for even the least experienced users. You just need to follow the suggested steps of importing media, placing the elements in the storyboard, adding effects and exporting to video. Unluckily, though, there is no help documentation available.
The best advantage of this tool is its support of high definition formats. In this regard, it allows exporting in four different resolution, 1920 x 1080 being the highest. However, it does not let you export in any format other than MP4 and MOV, which is quite limited compared with other tools of the same kind.
It is good that the program can import any kind of media, including photos, music and video. Then, the visual elements can be dragged and dropped on the storyboard, while the audio files may serve as background music. There are various album styles available and, luckily, some of them include pan and zoom effects, which makes the visualization more attractive. Another possibility is to use the transition between the images.
All in all, HD Slideshow Maker can produce nice animated slideshows. However, you should know that the tool cannot go further than that. For instance, no editing operation, like cropping or trimming, is possible. Moreover, it does not seem to support adding text or titles, which certainly add a motivational element to the slideshow. Finally, the product is shareware, so it can be tried at no cost for a limited period of time.
