Designing professionally-looking slideshows requires a specialized application, and one of the available solutions is Photopia Creator.

The main window of Photopia Creator is intuitive and user-friendly. Also, it packs an integrated wizard for assisting you into setting up attractive slideshows.

When you build a new slideshow, you need to start by selecting the aspect ratio, depending on the screen size you are interested in (widescreen, cinema, older TVs, square, Instagram or custom).

The second step you need to complete is finding a theme that best suits your topic. If none of the provided options fully pleases you, you can simply modify one of them to match your expectations.

Details such as author, website and copyright data can be altered, along with the thumbnail. You can replace the default background image with a custom one, as well as change the music file with one of your own.

It goes without saying that you can modify the slide styles and transitions as you see fit, and motion effects can be inserted as well.

When adding content to your slides, you can select both images and videos.

When it comes to the graphic formats, Photopia Creator supports JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, ICO and others, whereas the supported videos extensions are AVI, MP4, MKV, WMV, MPG and so on.

Once you are satisfied with the look of your slideshow, you can publish it and share it with the world. You can save it as a video and post it on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo or any other online platform.

Alternatively, you can export it to a format that is best suited to be played on portable devices (Apple, Android, or Windows devices or media players) or TVs (Blu-ray, DVD, CD discs or USB drives).

Photopia Creator can definitely surprise you with its flurry of features - the novices can go for the Light view mode, whereas the experts can discover and experiment with all its functions due to the Advanced mode.
