Present holiday photos perfectly: on DVD or on your computer as a slide show. We’ve selected the free tools that will best help you with this.
Free tools to create slideshow
After a vacation, a family outing or a big celebration, you are faced with the same problem again and again: First of all, you have to sort out the best photos from hundreds, if not thousands of pictures you have taken. And then squeeze it into an appealing shape to show to friends or relatives. The most convenient is the slide show on DVD – you can take it with you and play it back anywhere. Another possibility is the presentation on the laptop – it even runs outside on the terrace or on the balcony. But the effort puts many off – and the most beautiful picture treasures are forgotten on the hard drive. To keep this from happening to you, we’ve selected ten free slide show tools.

You are probably already familiar with some of the programs – such as IrfanView – but did not know that they also contain a slide show function. With IrfanView you can find this feature, for example, by calling up “File, Slideshow” or alternatively pressing “W” on the keyboard as soon as the program is open. You can now add any images to your new slide show using the window on the right. On the left you determine how long each photo should be displayed, which image you want to start with and whether text should be displayed. You can also burn the result as a data CD or video CD.
