How to make an animated photo slideshow

May 5, 2020 / By

An animated photo slideshow, commonly known as the Ken Burns effect, is a slow panning and zooming of still images. It can make your run-of-the-mill slideshow more engaging, and best of all, it’s super easy to do in WeVideo.

Start by selecting two or more still images from either the stock media folder or your imports. Then, drag them to your timeline. A pop-up will ask if you’d like to apply the Ken Burns effect. You can then adjust the number of seconds for each image as you please. 

If you’d like to adjust the animation more precisely, you can do so by double-clicking the image and selecting the animation tab. From here, you can tweak the size and position of the image animation.
