The second Sunday of May is Mother’s Day, a special occasion for mothers, grandmothers and mothers-to-be, the greatest group nurturing and raising our families. Are you ready to present our honorable mothers with the warmest wish? You may gift your mom a cute card, a thankful poem, a banquet of flowers or anything that caters to her. Serve her a delicious dinner, and tidy the house to leave mother a light break.
Apart from the above gift ideas, you can also do something creative – i.e. make a DVD or video photo album for the special day using PowerPoint. Photos of your beloved mom deserve a careful collection in PowerPoint and delightful display on TV or Web to rejoice all the family staff with sweet memories.
Before the very beginning of Mother’s Day DVD photo album, ensure you have the following three items:
I. Digital photos of your mother’s or the family’s
II. Music to background the PowerPoint photo album
Sample video of Mother’s Day photo album
Next, do the following steps to make a DVD or video photo album for dear mama.
1. Import and edit the Mother’s Day photos in PowerPoint.
a. Create a new PowerPoint slideshow (*.pps, or *.ppsx). Here we take 2007 MS PowerPoint as an example.
b. Open the PPSX file, and select the Insert tab. In the Illustrations group, click the Photo Album icon to import the photos from your local drive.
c. Insert the background music of Mother’s Day and set as “Play across Slides”. Animate and add word illustrations to each photo slide.
d. You can also use the Record function to narrate for the Mother’s Day slideshow.
2. Input into Moyea PPT to DVD Burner for a video or DVD slideshow.
a. Install Moyea PPT to DVD Burner on your PC or notebook. Run it and import the Mother’s Day slideshow (*.pptx).
b. In the Options tab, select the output as DVD or Video as necessary.
c. Make custom settings like logos, DVD menus for the output slideshow. Otherwise, simply click Burn to convert the slideshow to DVD or video.
Now you can connect the DVD or video photo album to a TV or a video hosting site to share with your family on Mother’s Day this May.
