How to make a YouTube slideshow

  1. Upload files

    Select videos, images and GIFs from your personal device by clicking the button “Choose files”. Multiple selection is possible. If you want to use content stored somewhere else, call a drop-down menu and hit one of two options:

    Upload files to the YouTube Slideshow Maker
    • import files from Google Drive or Dropbox;
    • insert a link to a file already shared on social media.

  2. Make a slideshow and add audio

    Add more files if you need. Use the three options described above or just drag and drop them to the timeline below the player. Change the files’ order.

    Choose one of the ready crop options. For YouTube you’ll need the second one: 16:9. Add borders or crop the video.

    If your slideshow contains any static images, set their duration. Mind, that it’ll be the same for all of them. Tick the “Crossfade” box to make the frame transition seamless and smooth.

    Upload music in YouTube Slideshow Maker

    Click “Add audio” and select music. To trim it you can either set the timing manually in the appropriate boxes, or use the slidebars. Adjust volume for both soundtrack and added videos.

    The YouTube Slideshow Video Maker allows choosing an output format. The recommended ones are MOV, MP4, AVI, and WMV.
