FREE SLIDESHOW TEMPLATE for Adobe Premiere Pro


This video is brought to you
by Squarespace Hello creative filmmakers,
thanks for watching Orange83. A little over two years ago
I released a video on how to make a slideshow
within Adobe Premiere Pro. This video has been watched
over a million times. And I’ve received a lot of positive
feedback from many viewers. So, to thank you all for the support I’ve made a free slideshow
template for Premiere Pro. Based on that tutorial. It is a project template
including 20 placeholders for the photo and video as well. And if you want an example, this entire video so far is made
with this same template. You need Premiere Pro 2019 or newer
to be able to use this project file. It won’t work on all the versions simply because Premiere
is not backwards compatible. In this video I’ll show you how to
download and how to use the template. You can find timestamps for
each part in the description below. Now, without further ado, let me show you
how and where to download the template. If you follow the download
link in the description you will get to this Sellfy page. Like I mentioned, this preset
is absolutely free to download. But if you want to support my work
and buy me a cup of coffee, you can enter any amount here. In the next step you click on ‘buy now’. Also, if the amount is 0. And then in the checkout screen
enter your email address and select your country. Also enable or disable notifications
and click download. And after that, you will receive
a download link in your Inbox. And if you haven’t received it
in a few minutes then make sure to check
your spam folder as well. After downloading you need
to unzip or extract the files. Also, make sure to install the fonts
that are mentioned in the manual. And after that, you’re ready to
fire up the project templates. You can do this by double clicking
on the project file and then Premiere will start up. Or you can import it into
an existing project. If you want to do this, right
click in the project monitor and select ‘Import’. Then browse to the project file,
select that and click ‘Open’. In the window that pops up,
select ‘Import entire project’ and ‘Create folder’. And once Premiere is done importing, you will find this slideshow template
inside the Project panel. Let’s have a look at the files. First you’ll see that there is
a main sequence named Slideshow. You can see this as the top-level
sequence that includes all the slides and transitions. There’s also a bin with slides. You don’t need to do anything with that. The ones you want to edit are
inside the ‘placeholders’ bin. In here you’ll find a placeholder
sequence for each slide. Let’s take placeholder
number 1 as an example. Each placeholder contains two layers
without any effects applied to them. It is just plain text and a photo
or maybe a video. The bottom layer is for photo
or video and the top layer is for text. So, now let’s replace the placeholder
image with another one. I’ve got a few images ready
here in a folder. Let’s pick one and drag it
over to the timeline. I can now simply replace
the placeholder and also extend the image. If necessary, you can also
reposition or scale the image inside the Effects Control panel. The top layer is an essential
graphics text layer. So, you can simply select the layer and then inside the
Essential Graphics panel you can do all kinds of adjustments. And to change the text itself, simply
click on it and then type your text. And by default the Montserrat font is used, but you can always use
your own font, of course. And, of course, you can also reposition
the text inside the Effects Control panel. If we now move over to
the main slideshow sequence, we can see the results
of our adjustments. And the animation, the background
and everything else is applied directly. This all works identical with video. Let’s take slide number 2 for an example. I will open up placeholder number 2 and then delete the placeholder
image in the bottom layer. Then I’m going to use the clip in this
folder and drag it over to the timeline. Also, in this case it’s an option to add
or edit or reposition the text. But in this case I think I will
simply delete the text. And back inside the slideshow sequence
we can see the results right away. The playback might not look
very smooth now, but this will be fixed in
the exported video. And, by the way, this project template
is based on a 1080p sequence, so that means that if you’re using it inside
a project with another resolution and you apply it to the timeline,
you will see something like this. You can easily fix this by
right-clicking on the sequence and then select ‘Set to frame size’. This will apply scaling to the slideshow and then match the sequence
inside the project. In the template each slide has a
duration of 5 seconds by default. So, in total, the slideshow will
be around 1 1/2 minutes. But if you want, you can change
the duration of each individual slide. If you select one of the slides and then move to the end
of the clip with your mouse pointer, you can see this red icon. If you hold the Control key it will turn
yellow and you can do a ripple edit. You can now move to the left or the right
to increase or decrease the length. And, because you’re using a ripple edit, all the other slides will stay attached
and the transitions will keep working. I’ve set the default length for each
slide to around 10 seconds. So if you want to use that length, make sure that your image in the
placeholder is at least 10 seconds. Before I end this video
