Free photo slideshow maker

WOW Slider is a multimedia application that enables users to create stunning photo slideshows. The app is free to download and install and does not use large storage space. It is also easy to use, with every slideshow parameter easily customizable.

Unlike other photography platforms, WOW Slider does not use Flash. It is based on JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. With this, it does not require any plugins to run. Moreover, it is perfect for technically challenged users as all you need to do is drag-and-drop your pictures to your chosen template. However, it does not include its publishing platform.

How do you use WOW Slider?

WOW Slider allows users to create a photo slideshow with a few simple steps. As mentioned, it is made for novice users and does not require knowledge about coding and photo editing. To begin, all you need to do is select the images you want to add and drop them into the window. Then, choose the skin, effects, and some other options provided by the app.

The options included in the app let you choose your slideshow template, adjust the photo size, and even pick a transition effect. You can also further customize the parameters to fit your website design and your needs. You can add features, such as navigation control auto-play, loop, random order, and text description. Even better, you can see how your slides will look thanks to the live preview.

However, users should be a little disappointed to know that WOW Slider has no publishing platform of its own. What you can do with your finished project is save it to a folder on your computer or upload it to an FTP server. You can also insert it at once on your existing HTML code. You can also export it as a plugin for Joomla or WordPress

Is the app good?

Overall, WOW Slider is a handy tool that you can use to enhance your website's visuals. The app allows you to create slideshows in a few simple steps. It offers a huge collection of beautiful templates that you can customize with more options. The lack of a publishing platform is a bummer. However, you can easily export your creation to other platforms and even publish them to a server.
