IceCream Slideshow Maker is a versatile application that allows the users to create attractive slideshows with their photos. The program features a number of effects and useful controls to adapt any photo for slideshow.
The program works with images in JPG, JPEG, PNG, and BMP formats and also supports audio files in MP3, WAV, and WMA. By adding audio, you can make your slideshow look even fancier. It's possible to configure the offset and fade values for audio.
The program allows controlling each and every image in the slideshow by choosing a necessary time of displaying, type and duration of transition effects, and also by scaling the image to fit the screen and keeping its original aspect ratio. Precisely, you can use more than 20 transition effects (Pixelate, Mosaic Spiral, Wipe, Zoom, etc.), including random effect and no effect at all. You can use different effects for each slide or set the same effect for all the files. As for scaling to fit, users can opt for this feature while working with differently scaled images to make them equal and fit the size of the screen. Finally, you are allowed to keep original aspect ratio of the images to avoid distortion or stretching.
In-built media player helps users preview the projects prior to creating a slideshow. One can use this player to preview each separate effect as well.
The program features user friendly interface and a full control over the files. Thus, this program turns out to be a great alternative to too basic or too complicated slideshow makers.
