How To Convert Photos to Video, Animated GIF, SWF, and EXE File Using This Freeware?
Use the link added at the end of this review to download the setup file of this freeware. After installation, open the interface of this software, and follow these steps:
Step 1: Select the photo folder using the navigation pane provided by this software. After selecting the photo folder, thumbnails of images will be visible on the left side, like visible in the screenshot below. Double-clicking on an image will help you to view that image on its interface.
Step 2: Now, before converting the images, you can set output options. Some options can be used only with a particular output type. For example, you can add background music (mp3 or wav) for converting the photos to avi format. You can set time delay (in milliseconds) to display the next image, enable looping (for gif and swf), change the background color, set common height and width for all images, etc.
Step 3: Use the File menu to select the output type. As I mentioned in the beginning, you can select output type as animated gif, exe file, swf file, and avi file. However, only one option at a time can be used.
Step 4: After selecting the output type, it will prompt you to select the destination location. After this, the conversion process will start and all images will be processed.
After completing the conversion process, you can jump to the destination location to play the output file.
