At Milestone Slideshows, our goal is to give you the slideshow you need, when you need it. That's why we offer a wide range of customization options to make sure your slideshow is just right.

But with so many choices, it can be hard to know where to start. So we've put together this list of FAQs to help you get started on your graduation slideshow.

How long should the video play?

Depending on how many pictures or videos you have, you can set your slideshow to play from as little as one minute or as long as 20 minutes. We recommend no more than 12-15 minutes. Each photograph will show on screen for about 4-6 seconds.

How can I keep the video energetic?

It's important to keep people engaged while watching the show! This can be achieved by including a variety of photos, using engaging text slides, and keeping the overall feel of the slideshow upbeat.

Valedictorians, thespians, athletes, or bookworms - we want to capture all that is special about your graduate. So whatever you're photographing- big moments, small moments, silly moments- make sure to include them in your slideshow!

How do I share the video on the internet?

Once your slideshow is complete, we will provide you with a downloadable MP4 file. This file can be saved to your computer and easily uploaded to your favorite social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube.

You'll also have the option to purchase a DVD or USB flash drive of your slideshow.

How do I use pictures from Facebook or Instagram?

We make it easy for you to retrieve photos from social media. There's no more hassle with saving and uploading files. Simply click on the Facebook or Instagram icons on the photo uploader and grab photos straight from your accounts. It's that simple!
