As of 2015, Bolide Slideshow Creator supports most image formats and lets users apply MP3, WMA and OGG files, among other music formats, as background audio. After selecting the desired images and applying transition, zooming or panning effects, users can generate a slideshow in a video format with resolutions ranging from 128 by 168 pixels to 1920 by 1080 pixels. The video output formats that the program supports include AVI, MKV and FLV, among others.

The free version of Smilebox lets users select one of the basic designs, share the slide show via social media websites and use a companion iPhone app. The program includes over 1,000 templates that users can customize further. Similar to Bolide Slideshow Creator, it includes options to add music and text comments to individual images.
