The word "slideshow" often conjures up images of 35mm slides, projectors, and screens. However, digital cameras have made these types of slideshows a relic of the past. In today's terms, a slideshow is an electronic presentation of photos, text, or illustrations. Most slideshows are now accompanied by music. Royaltyfreemusic.com has a comprehensive catalog of slideshow music to fit the needs of individuals and businesses alike.
There are a number of different programs available to create slideshows. Part of the Microsoft Office package, Microsoft's Powerpoint is among the most popular of these programs. Powerpoint allows users to build slideshows using a series of "slides" that can contain music, video, text, illustrations, and photos. This program makes it easy to create professional-quality slideshows by providing users with templates and the ability to animate text and images. Ideal for small or large presentations, Powerpoint slideshows can be viewed on a computer screen or using a video projector. Check out Royaltyfreemusic.com's free tutorial and tips for using royalty free Powerpoint music with Microsoft Office for detailed instructions on how to add slideshow music to your Powerpoint presentations.
If you are looking for an alternative to costly slideshow software such as Powerpoint, look no further than the Internet. Typing the word "slideshow" into your favorite search engine will yield a multitude of results for free slideshow programs. These programs provide users with simple means of uploading and editing photos and video to create impressive slideshows for personal and business use. Although free slideshow programs are user-friendly, many of these programs restrict the use of slideshow music. The vast majority of sites have their own music libraries so users can only use the songs contained in these libraries in their slideshows. However, some programs such as Vuvox and Slideroll permit users to upload their own slideshow music. Users should be cautious when uploading music for slideshows created with these programs. Although you may think it is OK to use your favorite Beyoncé song as background music for your slideshow, Beyoncé's manager and record company may have a different opinion and expect you to pay a huge licensing fee. To avoid any potential licensing issues, choose music from Royaltyfreemusic.com's royalty free music library to accompany your slideshows.
