Preset Styles

A description of PicturesToExe's built in preset styles.

General Information

If images are “dragged” into the Slide List or are added via a right click and “Add…” command they are automatically assigned an “Index Number” which is essential for applying a Style. Images added to slides in Objects and Animation are not automatically assigned an Index Number.

Images are refer to in the descriptions - these can also be video clips.

In all cases read the information in the “Slide Style” window. As well as a preview of the applied Style you are told if you have selected too few/many images.

The Speed and Full Duration controls allow for adjustment of the Duration of the Applied Style. If the Full Duration is shortened then the speed of the animation is increased (and vice versa).

New “Categories” or “User Folders” can be made during the (TOOLS) CREATE a Style process by Typing a new folder name into the Category Box

Experimental

Cube

Add 6 images to the Slide List. Any Aspect Ratio can be used for the original images. The first image added to the Slide List is used as a blurred background image in the applied style.

The applied Style creates a Cube from the six images. Each of the six images has the “Adjust Image and Border / Crop” Tool added to crop to the 1:1 Aspect Ratio. If an aspect ratio other than 1:1 is used for the original images then the centre portion of that image appears in the cube.

After applying the Style the crop is adjustable using the “Offset X/Y” and Zoom can be applied using the “Scale” control.

The “Adjust Image and Border / Border” control can be used to apply a border around the cropped image. The colour and width of the border are adjustable.

Four Parts

Add one image to the Slide List. Four instances of the Main Image are used to create the Four Parts via the “Adjust Image and Border / Canvas” Tool. The (blurred) Four Parts are then brought together to form the complete image which is reduced in size and displayed (slightly rotated) over a blurred, larger than full size (100%) background version. Uses the “3D Parameters” Control to acheive the “swivelling” of the Frame.
