June 27, 2016 at 1:43 PM (PT)
FACEBOOK has just rolled out SLIDESHOW - a new way to turn multiple photos and video clips into a unique presentation with music and a customized title, which can be used to capture concert performances, among other events.
SLIDESHOW originated in the MOMENTS app and has been testing on the main FACEBOOK app in several countries since last DECEMBER. FACEBOOK wi'll continue to add new themes and music to choose from. SLIDESHOW will be available globally on iOS this week.
There are two ways to create a SLIDESHOW:
If you've taken more than five photos or videos in the past 24 hours, FACEBOOK will give you a preview of a pre-made slideshow at the top of your NEWS FEED in the “What's on your mind” box when you open the FACEBOOK app. You can customize and edit your SLIDESHOW by removing new images and videos, selecting one of 10 themes with unique visuals and music, adding a title, and tagging your friends.
If you see someone else's SLIDESHOW in your NEWS FEED, FACEBOOK may give you the option to “Try It,” which will let you select five-plus images/videos of your own to create a SLIDESHOW.
The themes you can choose from are: Inspired, Nostalgic, Playful, Night Out, Birthday, Epic, Thankful, Tropical, Bollywood, and Amped.
