Reasonably priced thematic photo slideshow creator?
June 7, 2010 4:15 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for software to create a themed photo slideshow from existing pictures. For example, I want a bunch of pics from a conference to have a "Wild West" theme (or "spy" or "beach", etc.) - frames/background and (ideally) background music. Prefer under $100, but I want to know regardless of price point. Anything out there?

We've used animoto to good effect. I'm not quite sure if it fits your "thematic" needs, though.

Not sure about the thematic angle, other than iMovie themes, but my favourite slideshow tool is Photo to Movie for $50. My vimeo page has a few samples of how I use it.

Best answer: Turns out I was looking for a multi-track video editor: Corel's VideoStudio Pro X3 fits the bill, so that was the recommendation I made to the person who asked me. VSP has some nifty preloaded video backgrounds (the "theme" idea I was looking for) that you can superimpose pics and/or video on, and there are more downloadable images & video at their site. The trial version of the software is fully functional.

Thanks for the other pointers. It was fun trying those out.
