How to create a Google Photos custom slideshow

The other day I was asked by a fellow teacher how to create a custom slideshow for her students using Google Photos.

While Google Photos can do a lot - it can't do a slideshow without a little bit of help.

Here are the steps I used to create a slideshow with audio. Of course there are other ways - but this was one way to do it.

  1. I found photos in the Google Photos and then selected the plus in the upper right and created an animation.
  2. The created animation is in a GIF format and moves quite quickly.
  3. I then opened 
    1. selected resize
    2. chose my file and uploaded it
    3. chose speed and slowed it down to 50% and saved it
  4. I then used WeVideo to upload my slowed down animation
  5. Finally, I used BenSound for my audio.
Embedded below is a 3 minute and 17 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
