Make Static .jpg Files Look Like Video

A great way to utilize the power of your Digital Marketing is to introduce parts of your message across multiple slides. If you time your slides correctly, you can achieve an almost video like playback.

Here’s a quick rundown of how I did this across a 15 second message sequence:

I started with a blank blue background image (jpg with only color) with a slide duration of 0 seconds.

I scrolled in the first image choosing the “scroll left” transition.  Slide duration of 1 second.


Then I used a “scroll right” transition for the next image. Slide duration of 1 second.


It now looks like each slide animates in and out grabbing your viewers attention.  I then use “scroll left” for our first message with a slide duration of 1 second.


Followed by a FADE IN message for 1 second.


The text “IMPORTANT” looks to be the only thing that fades in on the screen.  I then use FADE IN again for the next screen.


Now it looks like the text “IMPORTANT” changes color to emphasize the point.

I let that sit for 3 seconds then select slide horizontal for the final message.


And voila! A video like playback using only STILL .jpg images!


This general idea can be used to introduce blocks of text, have objects slide in and out of messages… You can even play with image focus….
