How to make a video slideshow for YouTube

In order to know how to make a video slideshow for YouTube, first of all save all the photos that you want to make a slideshow of in a particular folder in your PC. Then go to YouTube’s upload page with url https://www.youtube.com/upload. There in the lower-right corner of the screen you’ll see the following section:

Click on the ‘Create’ button under the ‘Photo slideshow’ thing. You will see a dialogue box where you will see three tabs. You will click on the ‘Upload photos’ tab. (If you want to make a slideshow out of previously uploaded photos, then you will have to click on ‘Photo albums’ or ‘Your photos’ tab. In case of ‘Photo albums’, after adding an album select your desired photos and delete the rest by using the cancel/cross button. You can now add even more photos from another album or upload a few new.)

In case of uploading new photos, you need to click on the blue ‘Select photos from your computer’ button and find the location of the photos to be uploaded and finally select and upload them. When the photos are finished uploading, you will get to see how many photos have been uploaded and also the photos themselves. At the bottom of that page, click on the ‘Next’ button now. At the following page, in the lower portion you will get to see this: (This article is on How to make a video slideshow for YouTube.)

Suppose you are preparing this slideshow for a cover song or a short biography which has a duration of 7 minutes. Now if you have uploaded plenty of pics then you can choose a short ‘Slide duration’ like 3 or 4 sec. I assume that you have uploaded 100 pics, now if you choose a 4 sec ‘Slide duration’ then the total duration of the slide becomes 400 sec which is a little less than 420 sec or 7 mins (the length of your cover song). So my advice is that you precalculate the number of pics you need to upload. In this case for a 4 sec slide duration it should have been 105. For a slide duration of 5 sec, the total number of pics should have been 84. So you can see that the lengthier is the slide duration, the less is the number of uploaded pics required. I personally prefer a slide duration of 7 sec. (This tutorial is on How to make a video slideshow for YouTube.)



Besides slide duration, you also need to choose ‘Transition’ method. The available transition methods are Checkerboard, Circle, Crossbur, Crossfade, Crossing Stripes, Diamond, Heart, Horizontal Blinds, Puzzle, Radial Wipe, Slide, Star, Vertical Blinds, Wipe. Choose the one that suits you the most on this particular slideshow. You can also add music to your slideshow at this stage. To the right of the current page you will get to see a collection of most popular recent instrumental music, like in the table shown below. Try to choose a music that has almost the same length as your slideshow. Also try to choose one that would sound consistent and nice with your slide.

Then you need to click on the blue ‘Upload’ button which would be at the lower-right corner of the screen. Your slideshow video will start processing. You can change the name and description of the video and then be sure to press the ‘Done’ button. (You can even publish the video if this is it.)

If you need to use this slideshow of yours in a cover song or short biography, then you have to download it from your channel. For this purpose, just go to your channel’s video manager and then follow the short video given below: (This article is on How to make a video slideshow for YouTube.)
