Audio For Photos - Part Two

Bringing your digital slideshows to life using audio in Microsoft™ PhotoStory™

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture with music is a story come to Life.

In my last article at School Video News entitled, “Audio for Photos”, we learned how to use audio to enhance digital slideshows created Apple’s iMovie™ for Mac.

In this issue we will learn how to use music in PhotoStory™ by Microsoft™.

As a reminder, here are six things to consider when choosing music for your digital story:

1) Know your audience
2) Association
3) Beats Per Minute (BPM)
4) Instrumentation
5) Current Styles, Novelties and Pop Culture
6) Moments of silence

To learn more about this topic, you can review my previous article “Making Your Videos POP” for detailed information on each of these 6 pieces of criteria.
