You can select up to 30 photos (you can add more later). Tap on the images you want to include on your slideshow. Remember to tap on the photos based on a sequence. The first photo you will tap is the first to appear in your slideshow.
Click the (-) to deselect a photo. When you are done choosing images, tap Next on the top right corner of the screen.
- Add more photos, music, text, or stickers
If you need to display more than 30 photos, you can add up to 30 more images by tapping the Images icon.
Tap the Text icon to add text. Type in your message, then choose a font color. By default, the text is in white font. Then, change the font style. The slideshow maker in zShot is packed with different font styles to choose from. Next, choose the alignment option.
Adjust the size and position of the text by dragging any sides of the textbox. Tap and drag the top left corner of the textbox to move it anywhere in the slide, the bottom left corner to rotate the textbox, the bottom right corner to resize it, and the top right corner to delete the textbox.
If your slideshow doesn’t need any text, you can skip that.
To add music to your slideshow, tap the Music icon. The zShot app has rich preloaded music you can use. You can choose music from your iTunes or even a recording. You can record in the app, or use a recording you already have. Select None if you don’t want it to have music.
Make your slideshow more fun and engaging by adding stickers to it. The slideshow maker in the zShot app has plenty of stickers you can use.
- Adjust the speed and theme
By default, each photo of the slideshow is displayed for 2 seconds. Tap the Display tab, then click on the Speed icon to adjust the speed of each photo.
After clicking the Speed icon, all the images you selected will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. Tap an image to change the speed. Drag the slider left (to increase) and right (to reduce speed). You can tick the Apply to All Images to use the same speed option for all photos.
The zShot app also provides a great number of themes you can use. The themes give cool animations, such as hearts, rain, and snow. Drag the slider to adjust the opacity of the animations.
- Change the transition
Make your slideshow stand out by adding surprise elements in it. Slide transitions will make your slideshow look more interactive and attractive. Without transitions, your slideshow may look dull and boring.
Slide transitions also add smooth animation to your slideshow. The good news is that adding or changing the slide transition is super easy with the zShot app.

By default, all photos use the right to left sliding transition. Tap the transition icon, then change it by tapping any of the sliding transition options.
- Manage the photos in your slideshow
Do you need a photo to be removed from the slideshow? The Manage option lets you delete, replace, duplicate, and edit photos.
Tap any of the photos in your slideshow you want to edit, replace, duplicate, or remove. The Edit option lets you enhance the image you selected. If you want to change the order of the images, long press and swipe the image to move it.
- Change the canvas
The slideshow maker in zShot lets you resize the canvas of your slideshow. The default frame width is 640 x 640. You can easily change the canvas size according to your social media requirements. For example, if you intend to view your slideshow as Facebook Story, click the Facebook Story icon, then the app will instantly change the dimensions of your slideshow best fit for Stories.
Here are the different canvas types:
