How to Create a Photobucket Slideshow
In many cases, you've probably stumbled upon sites or links where they feature a Photobucket slideshow. This free photo-sharing online site is highly popular and very easy to manage. Best of all, there's a free membership. Free members will not only get to keep a whole load of images and albums in their account, they can also create and share slideshows. Provided you already have a Photobucket account, here's a step by step guide on how to create your own slideshow.
Step 1: Select Your Album
From your Photosbucket Home page, go to an album that you want to create your slideshow in. Don't worry if all the photos you want to include are not in the same album; you can always add pictures from other albums later on.
Step 2: Click on Slideshow
Once you've selected an album, click on the Slideshows tab. Immediately, you will be taken to a page that allows you to choose the pictures you want to include. If this page does not turn up, make sure you have the latest Java installed and activated.
Step 3: Choose Your Pictures
On the left box, you will be able to select the pictures you want in your slideshow. Simply click on the green plus icon in the image, and you'll instantly see a preview of the slideshow. If you want to get from other albums, just click on the dropdown menu and select the album. Again, just click on the plus sign to add pictures to your slideshow timeline.
Step 4: Edit and Rearrange Pictures
At the bottom of the screen, you will see all the pictures you selected in one clear timeline. If you want to remove a picture from the slideshow, just click on the red minus icon. You can simply drag and drop the images around to rearrange them.
Step 5: Add a Title
You can add titles and captions to each and every picture. You can find this above the timeline thumbnails. Just click on the space and type in your preferred title. There's also a "clear all titles" option if you want to delete all titles and captions.
Step 6: Choose a Style
At the right column, you'll find over a hundred different slideshow styles to choose from. You can opt for simple animation, a more dramatic movement, or a thematic style. There are animated hearts, flowers, cartoon characters and more.
Step 7: Choose the Size
Below the style options, there are 3 slideshow sizes to choose from. There's small, which is perfect for sharing in email or at the side column of your website. Medium is perfect for including in a blog post or homepage. And large is perfect for fullscreen viewing.
Step 8: Save Slideshow
Below the preview screen, you will find a big blue button that says "save slideshow". Click on this and you will get a pop-up which prompts you to name your slideshow file. Type in the label, and you're done! Now you have a full-blown photo slideshow that you can share with everyone.
