Wondershare’s Fotophire Slideshow Maker – Review

Fotophire Slideshow Maker is a relatively new software by Wondershare with the sole purpose of making the creation of slideshows a walk a in the park. Often, creating slideshows takes some knowledge of the software for creating the slideshows, as well as some creativity for your slideshow to be interesting and attention-grabbing. Fotophire Slideshow Maker has taken away most of this work from you so that you can focus on what you really want to do, easily create a beautiful and professional slideshow. If you are wondering what makes this software different from any other software for making slideshows that you may be aware of, here is what you should know about it to determine whether it’s better.

The Three Simplest Steps

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Fotophire Slideshow Maker is the fact that the software enables you to create beautiful and functional slideshows quickly, in three simple steps:

  • Start the application and choose a relevant template from the many templates available.

  • Pick your preferred photos or videos from your computer.

  • Save your slideshow and you are done.

How long will that take you? Say, perhaps 5 minutes? You can create a decent slideshow in under 5 minutes if you already know what you are going for. It is that simple. You don’t have to know how to do what or what or what. As long as you know how to do the above three steps, your friends won’t be able to say it was you who did it, especially if you emphasize that you did it under five minutes. The slideshow will be so good it will seem like it has taken a professional hours to complete it.


The Fotophire Slideshow Maker comes packed with around 180 templates. Think of any mood or context you would like to capture in your slideshow and chances are that a template in the software has been provided for it. Whether it’s a party, birthday, wedding, business presentation, sports, night, morning, evening, lunch, name it, you are likely to find a template in the software that will send exactly the message you want to convey to your audience. The templates don’t come dry, each comes with its unique transitions and effects to emphasize the message you want to convey. And the fun doesn’t stop there.

Make It Your Own

If the templates are not enough for you or you feel something is missing, you can customize them according to your preferences. You can easily add cool effects to your photos and videos. You can even edit the videos, photos or audio to bring out original and authentic effects to your slideshow.

Of course customizing things like this will take a bit longer, but it is your choice whether you want to go this far. The basic templates that come with the software will suffice for most scenarios but if you would like to add a bit more of a personal touch, I just want you to know that you have that option.

Ultimately, once you are done creating your one of a kind slideshow, the software provides the option to share it instantly with your friends and fans all over the world on your favorite social network. You can share it on Facebook, Twitter, or even YouTube; whatever social network makes you sleep well at night.

The Fotophire Slideshow Maker is currently available for Mac users only, but a Windows version will be released soon, probably by the end of August 2018. If you are a Windows user and find the features of the app enticing and you are reading this article before September 2018, just be patient and be on the lookout for the Windows version of the software. However, if you happen to be reading this article subsequent to September 1, 2018, go over to Wondershare or Google, “Fotophire Slideshow Maker for Windows” and look for the Windows version. It should be available at that time.

Slideshows are fun to view and create. They make viewing photos and videos more interesting. They make business presentations captivating and memorable.
