How to Create a SWF Slideshow

The Question asked from "Hello, everyone. I am looking for an app that will allow me to make an image slideshow as a single .swf file with navigation buttons (next, previous, pause, etc). I tried a few other apps but they all create separate files and folders that the SWF needs to play the show. Can someone recommend a program? I prefer free but will pay if the program gets the job done. I am a Windows PC user. Thanks. "             

I suggest you can use Kvisoft Flash Slideshow Maker to create a slideshow as a single .swf file with few clicks. With the Windows slideshow maker, you can make the standalone SWF slideshow with your photos and videos. Here is the beautiful Thanksgiving Day Slideshow made by Kvisoft:

Next I will tell you how to build the SWF slideshow with few steps.

Steps to Make SWF Slideshow with Slideshow Program


Load Files to SWF Slideshow Creator

Open the slideshow program, then click Add File(s) to import your photos or videos. The shortcuts Ctrl+A can help you select all files in a folder at one time. By the way, online Flickr pictures and YouTube videos can be added to generate slideshows.


Customize SWF Slideshow Template

The slideshow maker provides some built-in templates for you to choose, such as wedding, Christmas, cartoon and so on. But if they cannot satisfy your needs, you can personalize your own template for a special slideshow with built-in slideshow template designing functions: How to Create Your Own Flash Slideshow Template.


Select Transition Effects between Photos

There are 100+ stunning effects including transition and motion for you to choose. You can apply them into your own flash slideshow. Just double click the target effect for every transition to build your SWF slideshow.

If necessary, you can click Edit Slide to adjust your images, like crop the size, add image filter, adjust brightness, add text and description, etc.


Publish Flash Slideshow as SWF

After that, you can hit Publish tab and preview the slideshow. If it is OK, you should publish it as SWF format and save it, then share it with your friends, or upload it to your website or blog for playing SWF slideshow.
