How many pictures should a funeral slideshow have?

When collecting photos for a funeral slideshow you can plan to have each photo show for around 3 to 5 seconds. It is recommended that the slideshow be around 3-5 minutes with a maximum of 10 minutes. So around 50 to 150 photos is the recommended amount of photos to have in the slideshow. When going through old photos, try to collect photos of your loved one that show them as a baby, child, young person. If you can provide videos on a USB stick this would create a more dynamic storytelling slideshow and is recommended.

About the memorial slideshow

Slideshows can be used to not only show the typical personal photos, but with the addition of surprising, special and personal details to tell the loved ones story. It can be used to further illustrate a life, personality, hobbies. These details can really let you share with viewers everything you think makes your loved one special. Collating the photos and video for a funeral slideshow involves reviewing a lifetime’s worth of photos and memorabilia. It can be a way to work through grief and is a nice activity to share with family members.
