In this video you can find more information on how to use Slideshow Maker Software!
With Slideshow Maker Software you can create sliders like this:
This slider has a very clean and simple design, that is flexible enough to work with almost any sort of website. It uses white and dark grey.
The slider can be both ‘boxed’ which makes it conform to the main part of your website, or ‘full width’ which allows it to fill the whole of the users screen horizontally.
The main image has a very thin white border, that is just enough to help the images stand out from colored or dark backgrounds.
Hovering over the slider brings two navigational arrows into view, one one each side of the slider. These are two semi-transparent dark grey circles with a thin white border containing a bold white arrow. Hovering over the arrows makes the border less transparent and thus brighter. It is a subtle roll-over effect that still lets the user know they can interact with the arrows. Clicking on the arrows allows you to navigate through the slides.
There is a caption in the bottom left corner. It has white text on a dark grey rectangular background. The rectangle has rounded corners and a thin white border. The caption is semi-transparent, which allows the background image to show through.
The font is Open Sans Condensed, a humanist sans-serif font that is fairly neutral, but still friendly. It is a font designed for screen, so is extremely legible.
At the bottom of the slider are a series of circles. Each circle is white, with a dark grey border and then a white border. The double border is an attractive and stylish design choice. Each circle is linked to a slide in the slideshow. They are semi-transparent, except for the circle linked to the current slide on display. These are still slightly transparent, but less so that the other circles. This helps let the user understand how the circles work and what they represent.
Hovering over a circle inverts the colors, so it becomes a dark grey circle with a white border. It also brings up a preview image of the slide. Each preview image has a white semi-transparent border. Clicking on a circle takes you to the relevant image, and allows users to navigate directly to the image they are interested in.
The default change effect is ‘blur’, which blurs the previous image out and the new image in. It’s a simple transition, which would work with any kind of image. Almost all of the transition choices would work with this slider, but another nice and fairly neutral one is collage.
The design of this slider is very flexible, and would work with any kind of website from blogs to e-commerce stores to portfolios. It is completely responsive, so looks equally good on tablets and smart phones as on desktop computers and laptops.
I have a purchased unlimited license for WowSlider Version 8.5, purchased in August 2015, and it will not let me open any previous projects in Windows 10. Testing reveals that it’s not compatible with Win 10. I really don’t want to put out more money for this product when it’s been less than a year since I last purchased from you. Are there any workarounds to make what I have work? Very frustrating!
Please note that your project files don't store images, they store the paths to them only, and if your images were moved or removed, they won't be shown. You can open your project file in a text editor and check the paths.
Thanks for your response. What you're saying is what was happening. However, after reading my original email with download info I saw I could download twice and when I did that I got the latest version, 8.7, and it does in fact bring up the images in the saved 'project.' Interesting, huh?
Is the problem solved? Please let us know if you need any other assistance, and have a great day!
Yes, it was. Thanks so much for your timely responses. Have a great day also!
For some reason my shortcut to wowslider isn’t working. My copy was a licensed copy. I don’t recall receiving notification that my license was expiring. I still have my login information but can’t find on your site where to login.
All upgrades are free within one year after the purchase. Unfortunately, your free upgrade period is over. If you want to upgrade your license, you can get it for only the 50% of the current license price.
I'm good with needing to upgrade but why did the shortcut to the software just stop working and I wasn't notified.
Please check your device for malware and viruses. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
Are you saying my license is active and I shouldn't be having a issue?
Yes, your key is vaild. Probably you should reinstall the app.
My Windows 10 canceled your softwraree. They wrote me that software is dangerous.
Please add our app to exceptions. It is a false alarm. Our app is safe. You can check it here: www.virustotal.com
I was wondering two things.
Do you offer a student discount?
I am confused about the billing plans. I see on your website that licenses are for life, but then it seems you have to renew every year, either manually or automatically. This gives mixed messages. Is it that the registration is for life but payment is every year? It appears that this service is not a one-time charge.
We offer discounts for non-profit users and for customers who used the purchased version of WOW Slider one year. If your site generates any type of income through products, advertisements, services, or just represents a commercial company then you should purchase a commercial license. Your license is for life, it includes one year of free upgrades. When your free upgrade period will be over, you will be able to renew your license with a 50% discount. Also you can continue to use the version you have.
Thanks very much for your reply. I was in urgent need of a couple of sliders for my class project so I did purchase the 99.00 package yesterday with the 30.00 discount, partly because I had to get rid of the default watermark. Quite frankly, it still is not clear. Basically, I think you're saying, as I already stated, that registration is for life but every year we have to renew. I guess at renewal time there will be a 50% discount - in this case it would be 50% off of 69.00? I'm not trying to be cranky - it just seems misleading to say that the license is for life when in fact it is only per pay period - at least that's how it appears.
The renewal will be cost a 50% of a current prise to your type of license. You don't have to buy a renewal, you can continue to use the version that you have, it will be available.
Please bear with me, but it still is not clear. Why would someone pay for a renewal if they can keep using what they have at no extra charge?
We regularly release new versions that have new options, functionality, templates and effects. So customers see the advantages of the new version and buy it.
Maybe it's finally becoming clearer - so now, if I understand correctly, I can use the current version indefinitely, and if I want to upgrade to a newer version after a year, I can do so at a 50% discount?
I feel like an idiot :). This should be so simple.
Anyway, maybe I should cross that bridge when I get to it - lots of sliders to play with in the meantime :)
I'm impressed by your customer service, including on a Saturday.
We previously used SlideshowPro Director on our website to display our library events. We are looking for a replacement for this product. With SlideshowPro, we could schedule when individual slides would display based on a date range or ending date. Does your product allow the scheduling of individual slides?
Unfortunately, that's not currently supported in the app.
I was trying to purchase a commercial version of the WOW slider, but the buy now link doesn't seem to be working. Is it still possible to purchase a commercial version?
Please try to click on 'buy now' on http://wowslider.com/licenses.html If the links don't work, please open this page in another browser or device and try again.
Thanks for the swift reply. I tried in an alternative browser and it worked. It may be that I had pop ups or something disabled in the first browser.
