iPixSoft Video Slideshow Maker is a program with a name that pretty much sums up its functionality - it allows you to create slideshows from images and videos. The tool supports several file formats, including JPG, PNG, AVI, MOV and FLV.
The interface of the application is clean and intuitive. Importing photos and clips into the file list can be done with the help of the file browser, since the 'drag and drop' method is not supported.
iPixSoft Video Slideshow Maker comes packed with a few editing options for images and videos. So, you can adjust the brightness and contrast levels, crop images, apply a photo hyperlink, add effects (e.g. grayscale, sculpture), as well as zoom in and out of the pictures.
When it comes to the video clips, you can preview them in a built-in media player, crop or trim them by marking the start and end position or time values, as well as disable the audio stream.
Furthermore, there are a few template options available for the slideshow theme, such as the ones designed for iPhone or special events, like birthdays and weddings. In the following steps, you can decorate the show with clipart, sounds and captions (e.g. rotate, apply fade effect).
Once you are satisfied with the results, you can save the slideshow to a video file, HTML5 video, executable file, screensaver, SWF or HTML file, or you can publish it online. From the 'Settings' screen you can change the default show size, Flash options, audio and video quality, background color, loop style and preloader preferences, among others.
The application requires a low amount of system resources, is pretty responsive and includes user's guide.
