YouTube is best know for its video hosting capabilities which have been improved a lot by Google in recent years. The site is supporting higher resolutions now for instance or making available a video editor to its users and while that is certainly basic in comparison to high end video editing tools, it makes available a set of interesting features on the site directly.
Note: YouTube's Photo Slideshows feature won't be available anymore from September 20th, 2017 on.
What many YouTube users do not know is that it is also possible to use YouTube to create photo slideshows. Most users are probably creating the slideshows in programs like Windows Movie Maker before they upload the resulting videos to YouTube. This is however no longer necessary as YouTube is supporting the creation of photo slideshows now as well.
Here is what you need to do to create a photo slideshow on YouTube.
YouTube's photo slideshow creation feature is a great addition to the site, even though it is a bit basic in some regards. You can't add your own music to the slideshow for instance, and there is no option to add custom text to the slideshow. If you just want to create a slideshow though and do not mind that, then it is certainly an interesting option for that.
