There are multiple ways for us to add music to a slideshow. In this article, we will introduce you 3 simple ways as references.

1. Power Point

If one want to create a slide show for presentation, Power Point is the first thing that comes to mind. Yes, the software is often used to create Power Point presentations for classes, meetings, and other formal events, which is its main feature. However, its long history of being used in such Settings has given rise to the stereotype that Power Point can only be used for conference slides. But that's not the way it is.
