How to use this template :

The pictures have to have .jpg extension.
The archive includes 4 templates for different ratio of screen and pictures :

- One for 16:9 screen ratio and 3:2 pictures
- One for 4:3 screen ratio and 4:3 pictures
- One for 4:3 screen ratio and 3:2 pictures
Open the archive and decompress the template.
Choose the pictures of your own you want to use, rename them chestbox-pic01, chestbox-pic02,... chestbox-pic40.
(Read here to know how to quickly and easily rename your pictures).
Copy (replace) all those pictures in the folder where you unzipped the archive.
For pic chestbox-pic01, open it in your photo editor, resize it 600 pixels width and save it as chestbox-pic01-small.
Open the template, depending on the screen ratio and pics you want.
To modify the text displayed in the slideshow :
- Text on the side of the box : for slide #2 and slide #44, select the [TEXT] text object and in the Properties tab, modify the text.
Convert the animation into an exe or a video.
You can make all the modifications you want and include this effect in your slideshow.
Optional modifications :
You can use an other style :
Pictures on the side are only samples, there are much more in the package.
Please read this article to see more.
Go to the "styles" folder. There are three sub-folders :
- box : there are 18 different textures for an other style of box
- corner : there are 16 different textures for an other style of corner (on the top of the box)
- ground : there are 8 different textures for an other style of ground
Copy the files that are in a sub-folder and paste them (replace) them in the folder corresponding to the template you use (depending on the screen and pics ratio).
It's quite easy to make an other style of box. But do not hesitate to ask for a specific style in the "Requests & Help" section.
I will try to make it available as soon as possible.
You can very easily add more pictures to this animation.
Copy slides #11 to #18 and paste them just before slide #43 (named chestbox-lockinside). It will add 8 pictures animation.
You can paste as many slides as you want : if you want a 80 pics animation, you will paste those 8 slides 5 times.
For each slide copied, in the Objects and Animation window select the picture objects (named [PREV PIC] and [MAIN PIC]), and for each image object, browse your HD to select an other picture.
To do so, click on the folder icon (Properties tab on the upper right in the Objects and Animation window).
You can change the color of the background
In main window of PicturesToExe, select slides #2 to #44, click on the "Customize Slide" button, and in "Main" tab, use an other background color (try black instead of white) or replace it with gradient filling.
