Frequently asked questions.

What is the best image size to use in the slideshow maker?
You can use a variety of images in your slideshow, depending on whether you want to combine images on a single slide or have one main image per slide. Presentation slides use the 16:9 aspect ratio, so choosing images that are horizontal orientation rather than vertical is a good start. For vertical photos, choose the split screen layout.
How do I make a slideshow with music?
It’s easy to add music directly from your device or our collection of available tunes. Choose the Music option and browse until you find the perfect track.
Can I change the amount of time per slide?
Absolutely. Select the timestamp below the slide to adjust the length for each slide, up to 30 seconds.
Will my photo slideshow have a watermark?
When you create a slideshow with Adobe Express, it will not have a watermark. Your video will be ready to share from the moment you click publish.
