Forty-two Dazzling Dahlias

“Can these different looking flowers all be dahlias?” you might ask and Elizabeth Chambers created this FotoMagico slideshow to answer that question. (Check out the description on YouTube for more info on the dahlias shown and some general info about dahlia).

FotoMagico was Elizabeths tool of choice, because she was able to move slides around easily until they were sequenced in the order she wanted and give each slide an individual duration. The music snippets took the headache out of finding and using music that wouldn't present copyright problems. “Snippets allowed me to keep visual interest by periodically putting together slides with two and three photos at a time”, says Elizabeth.
