Adding Sound Effects to Your Slide Show

Click here to go to Creating a Basic Slide Show

STEP 1. Create a basic slide show. Follow steps 1-5 of the "Creating a Basic Slide Show" section above, or open an existing slide show.


STEP 2. Select a picture and add a sound effect. Click on the "Pictures" tab to view the picture playlist. To apply a sound effect to a picture, you need to click on the small "Folder" button under the "Sound Effect File" heading in the Easy Slide Show Creator™ interface. This will open an "Add A Sound" box so that you can navigate to a sound effect file on your hard drive and select it. Click "Open" on the file dialog and your sound effect file will be attached to your picture file.



STEP 3. Repeat for all pictures that need sound effects. Repeat step 2 until you have the desired amount of sound effects in your slide show. To select a different sound effect file for a picture that already has one, just click on the folder again and choose another. To remove a sound effect from a picture, click on the "Garbage Can" button next to the sound effect file name and it will be removed from your slide show. The sound effect file will remain untouched on your hard drive so you can add it again later.



STEP 4. Save and play your slide show. Click on the "Save Show" button. If you haven't already done so, pick a name and select a location on your hard drive for your slide show file. When you click "Start My Slide Show", pictures that have sound effects applied will play their sound effect when they appear in the slide show.
