Clean Professional PHOTO SLIDESHOW tutorial in Adobe Premiere Pro


Hello creative filmmakers, welcome to
another video editing tutorial by Orange83 In this video I’m going to teach you
how to make this simple but interesting photo slideshow. In a few simple steps
you can make your stills a lot less boring to watch. Just follow the steps in
this tutorial and you will be able to create the same effect for your images.
This video is sponsored by Graphicstock.com based on the #Creator2creator
initiative. All the images used in this tutorial come from their website. In
this tutorial I will use Premiere Pro CC 2017, but it will probably also work on
older versions. So without further ado let’s head over to Premiere Pro and
start editing. Step number one is importing the files inside Premiere. I’ve
already selected a couple of images inside this folder. Now let’s drag them
over to the project panel. Now that we’ve imported the images, the
second step is creating a sequence. Inside the project panel click the new
icon and select sequence. For this video I’ll use a 1080p 30fps sequence. Now I
will add one image to the timeline and when i zoom in you’ll see that it gets a
standard 5 seconds duration. If you want to change this basic setting go to edit>
preferences and timeline. In this panel you can change the duration time of a
still image. I’ll leave it to 5 seconds for now. Let’s create some workspace and
import the other images to the timeline. Select the first image hold shift and
select the last one. Now you can drag them over to the timeline. The
proportions of the image are different than the proportions of the sequence and
that’s why we’ve got the black bars at the side of the image. So I’ll change the
scale of the picture and set it to 120 percent. All the images in this tutorial
have got the same size and proportions. So that’s why I will select the motion
effect layer and hit ctrl C to copy it select all the images and hit ctrl V to
paste it. Now because we have zoomed in some important parts of the picture
might fall out of the frame. But we can fix this by changing the position values.
In this case I’ll change the vertical position for some of the pictures. In the
next step we come to duplicate all the images on the timeline. Make sure you’ve
got them all selected then hold the Alt key on your
keyboard, then drag it up one track above to copy them all. I’ll use the toggle switch
for now to disable the second track, so we can edit the first one. In the next
step go to the effects panel and search for Gaussian blur, you will find it under
video effects>blur and sharpen. Select it and apply it to the first image on the
first layer of the timeline. Then move over to the effects control panel and
change the blurriness value to 75. In the preview window you can see a dark edge
at the outside of the frame, this can be fixed by selecting repeat edge pixels.
And again we will copy this effect layer, select it, ctrl C, select the other images
and hit ctrl V. And now you can see that the blurriness is applied to all
the other images. That part is done so let’s enable the second track again. Now
select the first image and move over to the effects control panel. Hit the
stopwatch icon to enable keyframes and set the first value to 90. Then move that
keyframe to the end of the clip. I will create a second keyframe with value 75
and move that one to the beginning of the clip. Now remember that these values
apply to the size of my pictures. Your pictures might be larger or smaller so
you might need other values. And I’ve also resized all the pictures to the
same size before starting this tutorial. So that might also be a thing to do if
your pictures differ in size. To make the zoom a bit more smoother I’ll set the
key frames to ease-in and ease-out. Let’s give it a quick playback to see
the results so far. Okay perfect Now let’s copy this motion effect layer.
Select motion and then click ctrl C. Select the other images and hit ctrl V.
When I give it a quick playback you’ll see that the other images are also
resized. In the next step we’re going to add the white border around the image.
We’re going to do this with a radial shadow effect. In the effects panel
search for shadow. You will find to the radial shadow under video effects,
perspective. Select it and apply to the first image in a second track of the timeline. Move over to the effects control panel and scroll down to the radial
shadow effect. First enable the resize layer checkbox, after that I will change
the color from black to white. Then change the opacity from 50 to 100%. After
that I will change the projection distance, and set it to three. And then the last thing to do is to change the light source. Just
change the values until you have a nice even border around the picture. Then
again we’ll copy this effect to all the other images. Ctrl-c and ctrl-v. And now
all the images have the white border applied. Next we’re going to apply the
drop shadow. We have already searched for shadow and there it is under video
effects, perspective. And again apply it to the first image and move over to the
effects control panel to change the values. I will change distance to 20 and
set softness to 100. And also here again copy the effects and paste it to
the other pictures. And now also drop shadow is applied to all the other
images. In the next step we’re going to add this slide effect. But before we do
that I want to thank our sponsor Graphicstock.com for making this video
possible. Graphicstock has got a huge collection of royalty-free photos,

going to add this slide effect. Go to the effects panel and search for slide. You
will find this under video transitions, slide. Now drag it over to the timeline
and put it right between the 1st and 2nd image on the first and the second track.
This is one of the ways to apply the slide effect, but this would be a lot of
work when you’ve got around 50, 100 or maybe a thousand images. I’ll show you an
easy way to do this. Right click the effect and set it as the default
transition. Then select all the images and hit ctrl D. This will apply the
default transition between all the images. Now the default slide direction
is from left to right. Select the transition and move to the effects
control panel to change the direction of the slide. This will add a little bit
more variation in a transition between your images. Now as you can see the first
one slides from left to right, the second from top to bottom. And in the final step
to add some rotation to the picture. In the effects panel under motion apply
keyframes to rotation. Set the first keyframe to -8, then move it to the
beginning of the clip. Set the second one to +3 and move it to the end of the
clip. And then also set the key frames to ease-in and ease-out.
And make sure that the keyframes are at the beginning and the end of the clip.
And of course you can set other values to create more variation in the rotation.
I almost forgot to add the 3d effect. So this is the real final step. Go to the
effects panel and search for basic 3d. You will find it under video effects,
perspective. Select and apply this effect to the image. Then move over to the
effects control panel and set key frames for swivel and tilt. First I’ll adjust
te swivel value and move the keyframe to the beginning of the clip.
Then I’ll change the tilt and also set the keyframe at the beginning of the
clip. And then again when I change the swivel and tilt values it will create a
new keyframe. And I will put these two keyframes at the end of the clip. Then
I’ll select the first two, select Ease-in, and select ease-out for the last two. And
there you have the 3d effect. And that’s how you create this simple but
interesting slideshow. I hope you enjoyed this video if you did please give this

  2. Is it possible to apply a random transition and rotation to all images or is it required to do this manually for all images?

  3. that’s all well and good, but what if the slideshow you are creating has a time/ length limit. I need to create a slideshow that can only be 3 mins ….l.none of these listed here on youtube touches on the subject. What you end up doing is buy and downloading for not.

  4. shit i set properly the both keyframes for the first image like U did but my image is not zooming ,the playhead move but the image still the same

  5. anybody else's scale keyframes not working? I've heard it has something to do with a problem when you use time remapping and any other effect together. if I nest the photo first and then use keyframes to scale it up, it works! (??) My question is…why is time remapping enabled on my project? It seemed to do this automatically. When I toggle it off, it deletes my entire clip.

  6. Hi ! I am trying the ease in ease out thing. I follow your explanation. Although it seems I follow your steps right. The animation doesn't show in the sequence window. Nothing happens. Please help…

  7. Hey I love this method! But i went to render it and it kept freezing at 22% and i know my computer isnt that good so I took it to my friends computer which is really good but it froze at 22% again please help! Thanks!

  8. thanks for this tutorial, i used to do paste attributes but I never wanted to paste ALL the attributes, your method of highlighting the effect then copy and paste it is awesome it saved me a shitload of time!!!!!!

  9. Do you guys know why does the Radial Shadow cannot appear on some pictures? I tried to one picture and copy, some pictures worked, some pictures don't… I tried to delete the effect and did the same step on those picture, but still cannot appear 🙁

  10. I prefer using "paint bucket" for making borders. Set "fill selector" to "alpha channel" and "Stroke" to "stroke" and then mess with the color, tolerance and stroke width until you get it where you like it. You may have to crop certain images(usually only 1%) here and there to get a more even look.

  11. Great tutorial -thank you! What I encountered is that I always have to render the effects before I see any motion of a scaling picture in the timeline. Rotation motion effects do work totally fine and I can see any changes directly in the timeline. Does anyone have a solution for that? Thanks very much in advance!

  12. Can you please make a video showing us how you make a small file size video with HD in Premiere or if you not planning to make a video just respond to me with instructions? I'll be so grateful

  13. Gracias por todos los tutoriales, me ayudan mucho!!! Y también quería agradecer los subtítulos en español, sin ellos sería imposible seguir tus conocimientos, GRACIAS!!!!!!!!
