    FastFlix puts text on the video, how do I prevent that, or change it. I don’t want ‘FastFlix’ on my slideshow.

      I have the same question as Chuck Peterson. How can you eliminate the test in the slideshow. I just want to use the transitions with my photos. If this cannot do done I want my money back.

        Hi Bobby,
        The text boxes can’t be removed but you can change the text to your own titles. If you don’t want any titles at all in your slideshow, you can select the text, click on the Text icon to open the text editing panel and set the Transparency to 99. This way, the text won’t be visible. Alternatively, on Step 3 Save and Share you can click the Edit in VideoStudio button, which will open the slideshow in VideoStudio. The text will be on its own track, which you can delete.

      Hello Jake,

      Like VideoStudio, a FastFlick project file does not physically contain the pictures that have been added to it. When an image is added, a file reference is used to tell FastFlick which image is used at that time. To add those images to VideoStudio, just locate the folder containing the images you added to your FastFlick project, and you can add them to your VideoStudio project as well!

    When creating the images in a slideshow, how to keep the specific order? I put all images in a folder by photo creating date, but after uploading to the video some of photos are not by order.

      Hello Christine,

      When you mentioned the images are in a folder by creation date, did you mean you set Windows Explorer to display them by creation date, or is the creation date at the beginning of the file name? FastFlick does not ‘see’ the Windows Explorer display settings, and will import the files based on the order you select them in, or if you import the whole folder, the default sort mode in the folder – alphabetic and by type being the default set in Windows.

      One solution would be to add a quick date code to the beginning of your images as you save them (I’m a fan of month-day or even year-month-day codes for this sort of project), but if you already have a lot of images and renaming them all would be a little much, reordering them in FastFlick may be the way to go for now.

      Hope this helps,
