Part 4: 5 Tips for How to Make a Good Slideshow Video

A well-presented information can indeed  turn things around so here are a few tips in creating a good slideshow video:

1. Pay  attention to the picture quality

The use of a low-quality picture can  put off the audience and can be perceived as a lack of effort or seriousness.  The whole idea of images is to provide a balance and make the audience to  visualize the text so a blurry image would not help but put them off.

2. Keep  it brief and do not fill it with words

Presentations should be brief and to  the point. This is because when watching a slideshow, the audience is expecting  to gain knowledge through visuals and not simply read the whole text from the  slides.

3. Picture  order matters

The overall order matters a lot as  it will make it easier for the audience to follow the idea, otherwise it may confuse  them and therefore, they may lose interest.

4. Don’t  overuse effect

Funky effects might seem fun, but  they aren’t suitable for formal presentations. You surely wouldn’t want to see  words floating around while someone is asking for funding for their business.

5. Match  music with the emotion you want to convey

Music is very important and should  match with the context otherwise you can seem dumb and might offend someone  such as adding a party song while talking about an unfortunate event.
