The best birthday slideshow maker is one that creates an impactful photo display while being versatile and easy to use. A Kudoboard birthday slideshow does just that, it accomplishes two essential birthday functions. What begins as an online greeting card full of messages, photos, and videos for the recipient can easily turn into a birthday slideshow.
Creating a birthday slideshow is easy, all you need to do is select “Create a Kudoboard” and select a Milestone or Business plan. Once you have selected a background, start posting photos or invite others to contribute. When the board is complete, select the “Play Slideshow” button at the top right.
Just like that, you have an edited birthday party slideshow that can be turned into a book when the party is complete.
There are a few things to consider when trying to decide on the best song for a birthday slideshow:
- What is their age? The last thing you want to do is to play a very mature song at a kid’s birthday party. Taking their age into account is very important and will narrow your search.
- What is the length of the slideshow? Depending on the length of the slideshow will determine if the song you select will fill the time or if you will need to compile a few different songs to last the entire runtime.
- Are the lyrics appropriate for the occasion? Even though a song sounds upbeat, the lyrics may be deceptively dark. It is important to read through and ensure the words match the occasion.
If a song you wish to include meets all of these requirements, chances are the song will pair nicely with your birthday slideshow.
Here are some universal song ideas if you are looking for a starting point:
- Forever Young by Rod Stewert
- My Wish by Rascal Flatts
- Birthday by the Beatles
- “Happy Birthday” by Stevie Wonder
