This year deprived us of many celebrations leaving a lot of people unsatisfied and disappointed. High school graduates suffer the most – graduating is one of the first biggest accomplishments in everyone’s life. Instead of celebrating it properly with your friends and family, you are stuck at home with your lovely memories. Well, when life gives you lemons, make a lemonade – honor this achievement in your own way by making a graduation slideshow.
What is it?
A graduation slideshow is a video with the best pictures of you and your friends put together with a perfect song and some warm and inspiring words. It is something you will cherish for many years to come and is an ideal method to keep your photos in one place.
A slideshow is a great way to commemorate an important event and create a memory for life. It is a perfect gift to your classmates and teachers, an ideal way to show them your gratitude and thank them for all these years of support and friendship. Besides that, you get to be creative, express your artistry, and put a smile on your friends’ faces.
Collect the funniest, most remarkable photos from your entire school life – from primary school to the present day. Sort them out, pick the best ones, and make sure you don’t forget anyone from your class. Contact them, ask for their input, maybe they have some old photos on their PC or cute short videos.
Now if you want to turn a boring set of images into a dynamic and exciting slideshow, add a transition, animation, and other amazing effects. You can make a collage, put several photos on one slide, and select a photo frame of your choice. In case some photos are quite old and low-quality, enhance them using photo editing tools.
Next, pick a perfect tune for your slideshow: maybe, you have “your” school song or a song that most of your friends like, but make sure it’s fast-paced and energetic. A great tune can make your video lively and exciting when a slow-paced dramatic song can turn it into a boring and overly sentimental work. Keep it entertaining.
If you want to share your thoughts, then add some text to your slides using one of the modern and stylish fonts. Ask your classmates, teachers, and parents to pitch in some heartwarming words about the school years and adolescence. Additionally, look for timeless inspiring quotes on the Internet or check out another idea – celebrities make short congratulatory videos for the graduates. You can find those of Miley Cyrus, Oprah Winfrey, Selena Gomez, Matthew McConaughey and many more giving heartwarming speeches to inspire the young generation to new beginnings and add them to your movie.
Finally, get the right software for your slideshow. If the only thing that pops into your head is PowerPoint, keep thinking. You will not be able to implement all your creative ideas and add special effects and animations using this program. Better use SmartSHOW 3D – special software for making fun and entertaining slideshows for any occasion. The intuitive interface will help you quickly familiarize yourself with the benefits of the program, and the various design options will help you create a unique video for your loved ones.
Share your work on social media for everyone to see and appreciate. Your friends will be very grateful for your hard work. Alternatively, you can burn your video to a disc, wrap it nicely, and send it to them via post – what a great graduation present!
Graduation is a very important step in your life that needs to be acknowledged and celebrated. Create a great memory for your friends and make their day special.
