A Special Pan&Zoom Tool of Photo Slideshow Director HD

Adding Pan&Zoom effect into photos always makes slideshow more attractive. One of the greatest features of Photo Slideshow Director HD is its flexible ability to set special Pan&Zoom effect into Photos.

Here is a video slideshow with Pan&Zoom effect made by Photo Slideshow Director HD.

Now let’s suppose a slideshow without Pan&Zoom effect. We add funny photos, favorite music, set a dramatic transition effect and choose a sweet slideshow theme, the slideshow play well and it gives people multilayer vision enjoyment. But we still feel that it loses something. The slideshow just play from near to the distant or left to right. Thinking that if these photos can be played from side to side or rotated freely in the current screen while moving, it’s really a feast for eyes. Photo Slideshow Director HD has such a special feature for setting Pan&Zoom effect so you can achieve the visual delight.

How to set Pan&Zoom effect?

After adding photos, please tap one of photos from the photo list which is at the bottom of the main view. A Pencil tab on the left top of the small photo will appear. Tap it and you will be noticed some Edit options including arranging photos order, deleting photos, adding Pan & Zoom effect … Please tap the third options about Pan&Zoom, then you will have a view similar to the one below.

Create a slideshow video viewable on iPad using Photo DVD Burner

It is very easy to make slideshows of photos in your iPad camera roll, Facebook album, Flick album or Picasa album using the iPad slideshow app Photo Slideshow Director HD. Here is the link to the step-by-step guide about how to create photo slideshow on iPad.

However, if you have taken numerous photos with your camera and want to share with your family and friends on your iPad in a slideshow way, will you still transfer all the photos to your iPad and start building a slideshow project with the iPad app? I won’t do that. First, it would take a fairly long time to import all the photos into your iPad. Actually, you first need to export the photos from your camera to PC and then transfer them from your PC to your iPad. Second, even if you have all the photos loaded into your iPad, it is no easy task to deal with them in the iPad app, especially when you want to make the slideshow look more professional, like adding text, editing photo, applying transitions, etc.

The perfect alternative way is to create a slideshow video suitable for viewing on iPad using the Windows program called Photo DVD Burner. This photo slideshow program lets you easily make a slideshow video out of photos stored in your PC. There is the optimized output profile for Apple iPad. Choose this preset, and you will get the output slideshow video ready for playback on your iPad.

When the iPad friendly slideshow video is generated with Photo DVD Burner, you will then be able to add it to your iTunes library and sync it to your iPad.

Edit photos with the app’s photo editor feature

One of the most popular feature of Photo Slideshow Director HD is its photo editing function. Though it is not a professional photo editor, it can meet basic photo editing needs, like cropping photos, photo sharpness, eliminating red eyes, applying filters etc. Among all these photo editing options, I like filter effects most. And the “Sticker” option offers kinds of small art clips for decorating photos.
