AL Pictures Slideshow Studio is a program designed to help you create slideshows from images in a few simple steps. It comes with a wide range of configurable settings.
The tool is wrapped in a user-friendly GUI. Thanks to the Explorer-based layout, you can easily locate and add pictures, music and transitions to the project by using the 'drag and drop' method.
The item queue displays several properties about each entry, such as the location, transition style and effect, duration and comment of the pictures.
So, you can adjust the delay and transition time, rotate slides, preview songs in a built-in audio player and adjust the volume level, as well as configure project settings regarding the window size, main icon and other preferences (e.g. random transitions and slides, apply a grayscale filter to photos).
The background may be customized when it comes to its style and color set. Plus, you can apply a logo as banner and set its position, as well as insert links to your websites. The borders color is defined by the user, while messages can be inserted on start or on exit, in addition to help messages and various captions.
AL Pictures Slideshow Studio integrates a security setting, thus allowing you to restrict user access by password-protecting the slideshow. The tool supports multiple themes for the interface and allows the renaming of image files in batch mode. Projects can be saved to file for further editing.
We have not encountered any issues during our testing; AL Pictures Slideshow Studio did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs. It supports keyboard shortcuts and uses a moderate amount of system resources. First-time users may need some time to get familiarized with the app's features. Otherwise, AL Pictures Slideshow Studio provides some excellent tools for creating slideshows.
