A hot key program launcher, a scheduler and a task reminder.

Icecream Slideshow Maker is a great software that creates video slideshows with background music from the images of the supported formats. Simply drag and drop the images into the program's window, customize the needed settings, add an audio file and your slideshow is ready! Each slideshow can be previewed before its creation.

The program supports setting and individual transition effect and display time per each slide, selection of the output video resolution and the transition effect length. Enable the “Loop audio” option to loop the added audio track to make sure it lasts along with the video part. Apply the offset and fade options for the added audio if needed.

Any created slideshow can be added for posterior altering to the program (“Resume project” option of the History panel). Also, each slideshow can be easily uploaded to YouTube, Google Drive and Dropbox right from Icecream Slideshow Maker.

System Requirements:

Windows 10/ 8/ 8.1/ 7/ 2003/ 2000/ Vista/ XP, Windows Server 2008; 1.66Ghz Intel, AMD or any other compatible processor / faster processor for netbooks; 512MB of RAM (4GB for better performance); 100MB to 5GB of free disk space

Imagine this would do a lot of "what I want to" and installed like a charm BUT when I entered the Key it said invalid..........that was it..........re-copied the Key but then NEVER could find WHERE to enter it again like when first installed it came up and unstalled-reinstalled but no Key screen again........so guess it's "no workie" and don't have time to play today with it and presume it's a dead issue after today.
Any CLUES?

Despite the readme file providing a registration key and instructing:

Start the program, go to Settings=> Activate Pro version and enter the key.

The settings page has no Activate Pro version button/link and there is no provision for entering the registration key.

I have rebooted and reinstalled several times but an activate option never appears. Has anyone else had the same problem and perhaps the developer might care to comment

i highly suggest this program and others from the 'Icecream Team'. Their programs are easy to use and work excellent. This is one of the first programs i can say iam genuinely excited to see on GiveAwayOfTheDay, for the pure fact that it comes from 'Icecream Apps'.
I use to use their screen recorder for many years and their PDF program and they are amazing

You can't seem to adjust the transition effect time. For example, I want a s-l-o-w fade-in. The time can be set for up to 20 seconds, but it doesn't appear to do anything. The instruction manual is useless with regard to this.

Reply   |   Comment by Grump Pah  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Grump Pah,
There is a setting about transition-time, from 1 to 3 sec:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/5e5x00433d3qrx2/SettingsAll.png
In the main screen the display-time be set up to 20 sec:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/al0bgq4eclls4eu/SettingsAll-2.png
So all transition-times are the same in the video. The display-time can be different for eacht photo.
And there is no Fade-In, only Fade-Out.

Nice program. Very easy to use as well...especially after using Proshow Producer :-/. Music can be added to complete the effect which is always a good thing. NO key-framing that I noticed but fora basic program that's not necessarily a bad thing. The only thing I was a little concerned about was that the output was limited to a single format, that's not a criticism by the way...just an observation. That an the fact that you couldn't choose the destination of the final result..but since there's a button to take you directly top the folder where the results are stored that shouldn't be a problem either. I can hope that users will be able to create their own transitions as well, to expand on the one's available...but as yet anyway I haven't explored the program as much as I would have liked to ( been busy ). But first impressions are a nice program that the vast majority will be pleased with.

Ian, "that the output was limited to a single format"
There are more format's:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/k0lto3yu97mevgx/UitvoerSettingsExtra.png
"that you couldn't choose the destination of the final result"
It's possible to choose the destination:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/l9q8c69175id1eg/Settings.png?dl=0
I did not see an options to make your own tramsitions.
Or set the transition time to more than 3 seconds.

How would this program differ from using something like PowerPoint to create a slideshow on a loop? Would you be able to view it on any PC/tablet without the need for an additional piece of software? Can it run as a standalone slideshow, i.e. as an exe or gif format to allow it to keep running?

Reply   |   Comment by Jennifer  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Jennifer, Well, how about trying the program and seeing for yourself rather than coming on here and asking everyone else?

Reply   |   Comment by Akbar  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-32)

Akbar, simple reason - if it won't work as a stand-alone slideshow product, I don't want to take the time to install in admin mode (trying to protect my system!) and as others have already tried it, they'll be able to let me know how it works as a finished project! It's called the power of the community, Akbar!

Is it possible to burn the slideshow with music onto a DVD disc and see it on TV ?

Reply   |   Comment by Tony Alvarez  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Tony Alvarez,
Bearing in mind that many DVD [& Blu-ray] players will display photos stored on a USB stick as a slideshow, with no work involved...

Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro isn't tailored to creating DVDs, though you should be able to create a slideshow, re-encode it to mpg2, then use a DVD authoring program, burning the results to DVD. Some DVD authoring apps will handle the re-encoding, & optionally burning for you, but unless you really like today's GOTD, you're likely better off creating the whole project in an authoring app & avoiding the re-encode.

You should be able to use Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro for Blu-ray too, using a similar workflow, & *might* get away with not having to re-encode, depending on the authoring app used & the player... there are sets of encoding settings or parameters for Blu-ray, some authoring apps will always re-encode if your video doesn't meet its requirements, and some players are pickier than others.

If you want your slideshows to go to disc, you might want to try Nero Ultimate for DVDs &/or Blu-ray. It sometimes takes a while after a new version is released, but it most always goes on sale for between as little as $12 to around $25 - $30.

Same problem as Wil. Program registers but doesn't install on windows 10 64 bit

Reply   |   Comment by MisterC  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-6)

MisterC,
Maybe your antivirus is blocking the installation:
This is mentioned in the Readme:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT: please note that due to the Themida wrapper usage your installation might be blocked by your antivirus (AVG, Avast or Kaspersky)!

This will result in no program installed on your PC even if your antivirus reports no files are blocked.
In order to install the program, you'll have to temporally disable your antivirus.

If you have Kaspersky antivirus, disable it and restart the computer.
Please make sure it won't start automatically with the computer.
Now please download the program archive once again and try to install it.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

If you have any questions, please contact our tech support team at giveaway@giveawayoftheday.com

Can this program be added to the "screen saver" option on a computer running Windows 10 so it becomes the screen saver automatically set to run?

G, I did not see that option.

G,
"Can this program be added to the "screen saver" option on a computer running Windows 10..."

For Win7, 8, 10, once you create a video file with Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro you have to use a separate app to display that video as wallpaper or a screensaver. Google & you'll find a few of those apps.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

G, no, but you should not need to as windows includes a slideshow screensaver it's usually called "Photos" and can be configured to display certain photos or the photos in a user definable folder.

You can also use the Slideshow option on the lock screen personalisation settings too.

Note IF you installed and registered the previous giveaway version then it will carry over the registration from the previous giveaway version.

Superb and very easy to use. My kids like it so much. My kids told me that their school projects are now becoming very easy. Thank you so much GOTD and to people behind this application.

John,
Sorry, but this comment has the 'odor' of a fake comment.
I actually like Icecream apps, and have a few on my older computer and they all worked well.
But you are not going to convince ANYONE that your kids told you "their school projects are now becoming easy", because you have a slideshow app on your computer! These words just do not ring true.

Reply   |   Comment by Mister Lee  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+59)

Mister Lee, Good call on this one, especially when you realize that he also would have had to download and setup this software in time for his kids to master it or become proficient enough to make their schoolwork so much better all in time to go to school this morning.

Reply   |   Comment by Akbar  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Akbar , since this has been given away before and that license works even with the current version from ther vendors website it is entirely possible that it was downloaded and installed over a year ago and that leaves plenty of time for his children to master it to make their school work better but it leaves me to wonder what schoolwork needs a slideshow video? power point presentations are more likely but almost anything is possible with strange experimental educational systems in place in so called prograssive societies.

i came from that stage and a lot of time, i dl at last minute as no references.
yes, i totally agree this post is USELESS to good & advanced users.

i don't know how come those good & advanced users have time & effort to come & down me,
why don't spend your time in providing good tips or reviews for us.

donald, I think that some people "downvote" comments that don't mention why the giveaway is good (or bad). Yours was the first comment, so people probably expected to read about what your experience was in using this software. Thank you for mentioning that it was easy to get this program running on your system.
