You can shuffle or rearrange the slides by dragging to adjust their positioning.
Once you are done with pictures and captions, you can change the audio of your video to a suitable music that you feel will best compliment your slideshow video.
You can either:

- Add your own licensed piece of music.
Note: If you want to add multiple music to your single project then upgrade your account.

When you are done with adding and adjusting the contents, click on the ‘Create’ button.
You are almost there. Set the video quality and click on ‘Finalize’ if you are satisfied. Else, choose to ‘Keep Editing’.
Note: If you want to create HD (720p) or Full HD (1080p) videos then you must upgrade your account. Free plan supports 360p video quality only.
The video will now start creating. In this page, you will see a progress bar and some video information that you can update. You can name the video, add descriptions, adjust its privacy and save the information.
If you do not make any changes in this page, the video will be named as ‘Untitled Video’ and the privacy will be set as ‘Private’ in default.
However, these attributes can be changed anytime through the video settings option in the media player page.
