Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, PhotoFilmStrip is an open source app for creating video slideshows. Having an intuitive interface, it enables the users to easily add effects, music and comments to the slideshow and export it in many video formats.
The latest version available is PhotoFilmStrip 2.0.0, which has been recently released. Among others, it comes with a “lazy loading” feature for uploading images, new options, improved effects and many bugfixes. For more information, see the release notes.
In this article I will show you how to install PhotoFilmStrip 2.0.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Isis, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna and their derivative systems.
