Genolve Slideshow Maker Toolkit

Upload your own media or access millions of free stock photos and video via a built-in interface. Grab amazing SVG text effects and stunning SVG stickers from where everything is checked for safety and fast load time. Design from scratch or speed up your workflow and start from a library of existing templates. You need an API key from to use this plugin which you can get via registration or using the one-click-trial option. The banner above and our animated icon were both made with the Genolve Slideshow Maker.

Simple To Use

Whenever you create a slideshow you get a video recording of the slideshow and a coverphoto image representing that slideshow is also generated, simply place that coverphoto where you want the slideshow to go. If the browser supports SVG (all modern browsers do) the image will be swapped for the slideshow using the same responsive settings the image had. That’s it, no shortcodes or other parameters to mess with.

Wide Compatibility

Because the slideshow goes where you place the coverphoto, it can be placed anywhere you place an image; as the featured image, Gutenberg image blocks, or any other plugin that uses images, including WooCommerce.


These are demos and video captures of slideshows:
* Slideshows
* Animate on Scroll live
* Animate on Scroll video
* Featured Image
* Gutenberg Ornate Separator
* Tutorials

Use Cases by Site Type

Photography and Art Sites

When you highlight your new photos, videos or art in a blog post, use multiple slideshows down the page to support the story progression. Make interactive stories with the Premium option. If your photos are copyrighted, don’t expose them to the web, use the generated slideshow video instead.

Online Store

Highlight a new product line or special sales promotion. Construct a slideshow with flair and punch worthy of a Fortune 500 advertisement. Highlight a drink or a car sale (Note these tutorials were made before animation timing bars made animations even easier).

Music Site

Make a full-blown music video to put a spotlight on your music. Music driven animations add that extra professional touch. Use unconventional animations such as using the windows of a skyscraper as a frequency meter.


Make a slideshow tell a story or explain a point you are trying to communicate. Go for humor by making your own meme or make artistic abstract animations to break up the flow of thought. Instead of a static pull quotes, make elegant animated pull quotes.

Why do I need an API key?

The plugin remotely uses the SVG designs on and the API key is used to link to your account on Genolve. It adds extra security.

How can I reduce CPU load?

Complex animations with high CPU load have a warning notice that should be heeded – which is to only show it a short time and don’t show multiple high CPU animations together. Also avoid using filters on fullscreen videos. After selecting a high CPU animation, change the selection menu to something without animations!

How do I contact you if I have questions/suggestion?

Please contact us via the Contact page or Suggestions page we’d love to hear from you.

I have been using Genolve for a little over 6 months to jazz up the feature images of my blog posts. I create my own original artwork and have been immensely pleased at the ability to add movement, filters, transitions and other effects to help make my art pop out and be eye-catching in unexpected ways. Visit my site Sapience2112 to see examples of what I've done (link in my profile).

I started out using this to put titles on images to get better response when sharing a post on Facebook. Now i'm discovering more features and this thing is like a mini Illustrator or Inkscape but much easier because you just grab pre-made graphics. And u can animate them, had to watch the help vid to figure that out 🙂
