Movie Maker slide presentation (please critique)

Tim Allen (a Michigan man) does the voice on our "Pure Michigan" tourism announcements.

Don't judge too harshly, I am just getting started with the program.........I figure it's time to start doing something with my photos other than store them on the computer.

The program is pretty limited so if you could offer a suggestion for a better program I will look into it.

This short presentation is from a recent trip to northern Michigan while visiting family. The photos are from their surrounding area and I am making CD's to send them.

Please let me know what improvements I can make as I am just a beginner...

And, BTW vimeo is much nicer than youtube in my eyes.

Thanks LaRee

I can see a lot of possibilities with this.......finding music that matches the images will be a challenge for sure....

I hope I can keep my interest peaked...

Re: Movie Maker slide presentation (please critique)

I really liked your presentation. The only change I would try to improve it, is to make a soft transition between images. Your captions already fade in and out, the music is perfect, but the abrupt cut between photos is somehow disturbing, IMHO.
Best regards

I agree about the transitions, or lack of, but I was having a little difficulty putting in the transition and getting the text in the right place.

Very good. You seem to have an eye for composition. Your K200D serves you well.
