Slide shows make it very convenient to organize your images and revisit them later quickly. Slide shows also make sharing your images with others a fun filled experience. There are lots of softwares available in the market for creating slideshows. But many of these slideshow creating softwares are complex and learning to use them takes time. Boldie slideshow creator is an easy to use free slideshow maker using which you can make slideshows without any hassle.

The software has a simple UI and you can understand it easily without the need for any help files. Just add the folder with the images you want to create a slideshow with by clicking on the ‘Add photos to library’ option from the Photos option located at the top left of the software. Next select the images from the library that you want to add to slideshow. This can be done by clicking on the ‘+’ icon located next to the  ‘Add photos to library’ option. Alternately, you can also drag and drop the images that you want to add to the slideshow. The second step involves adding the audio files, transitions, and effects to the slideshow you are creating. Boldie Slideshow creator has a lot of transition effects to choose from. The effects section allows you to add text to images and select the Pan and Zoom option to the slideshow. The latest version (2.0) also allows gives you the ability to rotate/mirror the images with the need for another image editing tool. The default photo duration and default transition duration can be set from the software’s settings.

The slideshows created can be saved in multiple formats like AVI, MP4, WMV, MKV, and FLV. The quality of the slideshows can also be selected at the time of choosing the destination to which you want to save the created files. The higher the desired quality, the bigger will be file size. The software worked well during my test run and I found it be really interesting to create quick slideshows without the need for any advanced video editing skills.
