The second part of this tutorial will show you how to edit the photos. The third part of this tutorial will show you how to change the transition effects, the delay time for each photo, and the captions for each photo. The fourth part of this tutorial will show you how to add the theme, add music, burn your DVD , or save it for your website.

    So, let’s get started with part one of this tutorial. Open Slideshow Zilla and let the program load. When the program loads, you will see a list of folders in the left panel. Navigate through the folders and locate the folder with the photos that you want to use. Click the folder and all photos that are in the folder will appear in the right panel. Click the photo and click the Add button in the middle toolbar. If you want to add all of the photos in the top right panel, click the Add All button in the middle toolbar.

    You can add photos from different folders. You do not have to use one particular folder. To go to another folder, find that folder in the top left panel. Click the folder and the photos will appear in the right panel. Then you can add the photos that you want to add the same way that you did above.

    The photos in the bottom panel are the photos that you will be using for your video or slideshow. Browse through the photos. If you find a photo that you do not want in the video or slideshow, click it. Then click the Delete button in the middle toolbar. Make sure that you have all of the photos in the bottom panel that you want to use. In part two of this tutorial I am going to show you how to edit your photos. Once you have your photos in the bottom panel, move on to part two of this tutorial.
