You may think that to make a video slideshow, you will need to convert your pictures into a video format and then upload on the YouTube. But it’s not that complicated. You just need to drag and drop your images or photos on YouTube and they will be automatically converted to a slide show with amazing Pan and Zoom effects.
Earlier to do this you would have to use a tool like the Picasa or the Windows movie maker to join the image files together to make a video and then upload it on the YouTube. But now with advancement in technology, this extra step is not required. You can now directly convert your images into a video slideshow inside the YouTube.

How to Create a Photo Slideshow in YouTube

Once you access the YouTube website, click the Upload button and choose the option “Create” under “Photo Slideshow” option. Then click on the Upload Photos section and drag-drop all the pictures that you would like to be included in your slideshow. They could be your birthday, anniversary, farewell or picnic pics. They could also be the scenic images taken while on a long drive.
Once the photos are in timeline editor, you can arrange their position in the video by dragging them. The next screen gives you a default option to decide the duration of each image slide in the video. You also have the option to include transition effects of your choice in between the slides.  You can make your video musical by adding appropriate background music to the slideshow. But YouTube does not give you the option to upload audio files from your personal collection for the slideshow.
In case you wish to keep your slide show private, you can change the privacy settings to unlisted. This way no one can access your video on YouTube search. YouTube can include ads in your video if you have attached a background track to your slideshow. In that case you will have to share the revenue that is generated by your slide show with the music creator.
