Searching for an app that can help you create great slideshows with little effort? Search no more because I have here the app that you’re looking for! Check out Wondershare Fantashow, an app that can turn your photos and videos into wonderful movie slideshows. And we have an awesome giveaway for you at the end of the post!
Wondershare Fantashow – Turn any pictures and videos into movies easily
Wondershare Fantashow is a Windows* application that lets users combine photos and videos into a movie! If you’re familiar with Windows Live Movie Maker, then you might think that they’re just the same but this app, for me, is easier to use that’s why it’s great for beginners. The app lets you create your own movie slideshow in just 3 easy steps: Choose a theme, Import & Edit, and Export.
Wondershare Fantashow - Choose a theme
What I like most about Wondershare Fantashow is that it comes with some really nice themes to make your obra look more appealing; you just need to choose the right one that will fit your taste. Good thing they have different video templates for all occasions like weddings, birthdays, holidays, celebrations and more!
Once you’re done choosing your theme, you can now move on to the second step.
Wondershare Fantashow – Import and Edit
What is a slideshow if you won’t be able to see your own pictures or videos? Luckily, this app makes is very easy to import your own photos and videos. You can just drag and drop your media files or click the “Add Media” button. There is no limit on the number of photos you can import so just as add as many as you can! You can even choose your own background music, by clicking the “Change Music” button.
Users can also edit or add effects to each photo. You can choose from B&W, Sepia, Sketch, Blur and many more!
You can also add a caption on every picture so you can share the story behind it or add a subtitle to arrange your photos by chapters. The only thing I don’t like about this app is that you can’t edit the text (change the font, or the size), and control the timing. I hope that these features will be included on their future updates.
Once you’re satisfied with your work, move on to the third and final step!
Wondershare Fantashow – Export
After pressing the preview button and watching your movie numerous times, I’m sure you’re now excited to share it with your family and friends or watch it on your big TV screen. There are actually four video output options to choose from:
- Export the photo slideshow to video files in MP4, AVI, WMV or MOV (SD or HD)
- Burn the video to DVD, DVD folder or ISO files
- Share on YouTube instantly to showcase to your followers
- Choose the preset digital video format for iPad, iPhone, HTC or other devices to export the video
Though Wondershare Fantashow is not as feature packed like the other Slideshow or Movie Maker apps, it’s still enough especially for those who just want to create a simple movie of their last family vacation or those who want to impress their family and friends with amazing effects but with less effort only. Just imagine how you can transform regular and sometimes boring pictures into stunning movies!
