Top Tools for Adding Slide Shows to Your Website

Add Slideshows To Increase Viewer Engagement

Including slide shows is one way to enhance your website and encourage viewer interaction.  Increasing viewer interaction with your site helps promote a valuable connection between the potential client and your company.  Instead of having viewers clicking around forgettable content on your site, you can promote your services with a more unique approach.  Specializing in photo and video production, DC based Gearshift can create professional photography for you to utilize in your slide shows.

Creating professional looking slide shows does not have to be difficult.  There is a range of software designed for beginners and professionals alike.  Just because a software is simple to use does not mean the quality of the slide  show will suffer.  We recommend that you have professional photography available to create the slide shows you want, so don't hesitate to give us a call with any questions you may have.


Here is a list of some of the best and easiest tools for creating slide shows:


  • For those of you who prefer to do it yourself, our recommendation is to utilize flash based software.
  • There are many options available for flash based slide shows. Most of these do not require any sort of programming knowledge.
  • Some of the common options with flash based software include the ability to go full screen and to have the slide show begin automatically when the Web page is loaded. You can also add sound to enhance your slide show.
  • Another option is HTML based, which allows for more customization than flash. Although many of these require at least some degree of HTML knowledge, there is software available that requires little to no experience.


Whether you decide to go it alone or seek professional help, there are a multitude of options to choose from.  Gearshift can help you produce dynamic, creative slide shows. Call us today for a consultation at 877-477-STUDIO and be sure to get a free copy of our Video Marketing DVD.
