How to Create Halloween Photo Slideshow on Mac
Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31. Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (also known as "guising"), attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
What if you'd like to make your Halloween more special? How about creating Halloween slideshows with spooky pictures and horrible background sound to scare your family and friends? It sounds an exciting idea.
To create a Halloween slideshow movie, you need to prepare some spooky pictures, decorations, words and sound at first. Then you just get a slideshow maker to help you turn them into a scary slide show. DVD Photo Slideshow is an ideal slideshow software tool to create Halloween slideshows. It features dozens of transition effects, theme styles and menu style templates. You will be able to add background music, apply transitions, choose theme and menu style, set Pan & Zoom effects, and more. It lets you either encode the Halloween slideshow into a video file or burn the Halloween slideshow onto a DVD disc.
