Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 3 – The software

ashampoo ss3 - boxPhotos chronicle our lives and as such are of paramount importance to many, they certainly are to me. I backup all my photos to an external hard drive as well as to DVD. I also burn a selection of photos from each event; birthdays, anniversaries, trips, etc., in the form of a DVD slideshow. This not only provides yet another form of backup but also makes it much easier and more entertaining to share those special times with friends and family on the big screen TV.

I’m always on the lookout for good slideshow maker software and have tried and tested many different flavors over the years. So, I think I can say with some authority that Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 3 is better than good, it’s exceptional!

Ashampoo Slideshow Studio HD 3 includes every feature and option one could possibly need to create professional looking slideshows all presented in Ashampoo’s usual intuitive and easy to use interface:

ASS3 - main interface

  • Choose from more than 50 pre-defined themes, including; Birthday, Christmas, Birth, New Year, Party, Wedding, and many more.
  • Add logos, subtitles, sound effects, text, and annotations.
  • 20 different transition effects, including random transitions and the popular Ken Burns effect.
  • Add background music of your choosing.
  • Set slide and transition durations.
  • Preview before publishing.
  • And much more…

If all that sounds a tad overwhelming, don’t worry… Ashampoo Slideshow HD 3 will create a perfect slideshow for you at default settings, all you need do is import your photos, add some background music, and away you go.

Once you’ve created your slideshow masterpiece and are satisfied with the preview, you can then choose to save it to a file format:

Or optimized for sharing on YouTube or Facebook:

Or, best of all, Ashampoo Slideshow HD 3 will automatically burn the slideshow to DVD for you so you can watch it through a TV.
