How to Create a Photo and/or Video Montage

Creating a photo and/or video montage with Kudoboard is easy and fun!

1) To get started, first make sure that your Kudoboard has slideshow functionality.

Kudoboards that come with slideshow functionality include:

  • Milestone boards
  • Memorial boards
  • Company Event boards
  • Graduation boards
  • Boards created through Business and Enterprise plans

If you currently have a $5.99 Lite board or a $8.99 Premium board, your board can be upgraded to a $19.99 Milestone board at any time. Upgrading your board to Milestone makes it possible for your board to have slideshow functionality and accept an unlimited number of board posts.

Upgrading your board to Milestone can be done by either:

1. Going to your Dashboard and scrolling to where you see your board, and next to Posts selecting Upgrade

or

2. On the board itself going to the board's settings by clicking the gear icon. In the upper right of the settings it will say Upgrade Board.

Once you are on the upgrade page, select Milestone for the type of board you would like, enter payment information, and select Upgrade Board. Learn more about Milestone boards here.

2) The next step is to invite contributors so that they can add their posts to the board.

Want to create a photo and/or video montage? Encourage your contributors to add photos or videos to their posts. There will then be lots of great photos and videos for your slideshow!

3) As easy as clicking Play.

After you create the Kudoboard, no additional steps are needed to create the slideshow. A slideshow of the current board posts can be played at any time by clicking Play Slideshow. The Play Slideshow button is located on the board as well as in your Dashboard.

4) Show Title, Skip Videos, or Show QR Code

By default, the title of your board will not show when the slideshow is played. You can have the title show during the slideshow by clicking Settings > Toggle on Show title.

Upon clicking Play Slideshow, the resulting slideshow/montage will default to including every post from the board. Depending on the length of the videos on the board, your preference might be to click Settings > Toggle on Skip videos so that videos aren't played while playing the slideshow.

And, if you'd like to invite individuals to add to your board during a live event, or provide easy access to the board while the slideshow is being viewed, you might want display the QR code for your board on the slideshow. To do so, click Settings > Show QR Code.

5) Customize the montage order of play.

Want the board posts to play on the slideshow in a particular order? This can be achieved through modifying the order of the posts on the board itself. 

To move a post on the board, click the four arrow icon on the upper right hand corner of the post and drag the post to your preferred location.

After moving posts, click the Play Slideshow button to play the slideshow with the updated order.

Tip: Although posts generally play from left to right starting at the top of the board, depending on the differing post lengths it can be a little tricky to determine the order the posts will play on the slideshow. However, if you view your board on a mobile device, the board will be condensed to one column. The order of the post from top to bottom is the order they will play in your slideshow. You can use your mobile device as a reference while you rearrange the posts to your desired order. 

6) Download the slideshow.

Want a permanent copy of the slideshow? As the board creator, you have the option to download the slideshow through selecting Settings > Export video
