Create Graduation Photo Slideshow to Cherish School Memories

By Edward

Here's what we'll need:

  • Digital photos about school memories
  • Graduation songs
  • Graduation poems
  • Slideshow Software (Flash Slideshow Builder)

  • Step 1: Import photos & add background music.
    Drag the photos to the Story Board, double click the image to edit it with the built-in editing tool, which include some basic functions like crop, rotate, filter, etc. Click"Add Music" to add graduation songs for the photo slideshow.

    Step 4: "Add Blank Image" &“Decorate” with texts.
    Click "Add Image" on the "Browse" tab , select "Add Blank Image" to add a blank image, and then click “New Text” on the "Decorate" tab to decorate with the graduation poem.

    Graduation ought not be an end,
    Replacing what within we might achieve.
    After all, the good that we intend
    Does much to serve the good that we receive.
    Underneath the mask of a degree
    A person must perform with just the skill,
    The knowledge and the art that he or she
    Internalized through pluck, hard work, and will.
    On what we are will rest what we become,
    Nor do we have much else to draw upon.

    Step 5: “Publish”.
    Modify some “Publish Settings” to make the graduation slideshow more better. Click “Publish Settings”, first change the Slideshow Size as the same as the photos’ size then other settings like play control, preloader, you can just leave them if you don’t need to change. Here I select “Square” preloader in “Preloader” Tab. After done these, click “Create SWF Movie” to publish.

    That's done. Let us see our great job. Just follow step by step and building your own Graduation Slideshow to Cherish School Memories and share on Myspace,Blog and more.

    1. If the music duration doesn’t match slideshow, you can add or trim the background music to make them fit. Click “Edit Music” on the tool bar above Story Board in “Browse” Tab, or just double click the area underneath Story Board and modify the music.

    2. Modify text effect duration to make it best fit. After choose “fade” text effect in “Decorate” Tab, set the text delay as 1 sec to make the text display 1 sec later after image.

    3. Set a hyperlink for each image. Double Click the image on the Story Board, then click “hyperlink” tab and input the URL.

    4. Choose a gorgeous preloader for your own. Move to “Publish” Tab, click “Publish Settings”, then click “Preloader” tab and check the box “Enable Preloader”. After that, just select your favorite preloader and click “OK” to save the settings.

    » Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
