Losing a loved one is never easy, and creating a slideshow for their funeral can add an extra layer of stress during an already difficult time. However, with the right tools, it can be done quickly and easily. In this post, we’ll show you how to create an elegant funeral slideshow using Google Slides in under five minutes.
Before we get started, it’s important to note that this method is only for Mac users. If you’re on a PC, there are likely other solutions available. Now, let’s dive in.
Assuming you already have all of the photos you want to include, the first step is to open your Photos app and create a new album. Name it after the person the slideshow is for. Next, go to your finder and find all of your photos. Drag them into the album you just created.
Right-click on the album and select “Create Slideshow.” Name it after the person again. You’ll now see a new slideshow with various options. Choose the “Vintage Prints” effect, which looks great for funerals. You can double-click on the text to edit it, or drag photos around to rearrange them.
Next, add music. Get rid of the default music by selecting “Music Library” and choosing a song from your iTunes library. We recommend using a site like Soundstrap.com for royalty-free music. Once you’ve added your song, click on the timer icon and select “Fit to Music.”
Preview your slideshow and make sure everything looks good. Finally, click “Export,” choose a definition, name your file, and save it. You can now bring it into your presentation software and use it for the funeral.
Creating a slideshow for a funeral doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With Google Slides and a little bit of know-how, you can create a beautiful, elegant slideshow in just five minutes. Whether it’s for a funeral, wedding, or other special occasion, this method makes it easy. Just remember to do it all for the right reasons.
