How to create a perfect slide show in Nero Video easily and quickly?

If you would like to create a slide show in Nero Video after your vacation or for the annual holiday, you may have a very large collection of photos to choose from. The new AI and smart detection features in Nero Suite make Nero Video easier to find and create personalized slide shows to bring your memories to life.

As you know, Nero MediaHome is the universal media center in the Nero suite for archiving, organizing, creating and playing files. Previously, however, you couldn’t make use of these already-archived media information outside of Nero MediaHome and Nero MediaBrowser. Now it is different – from 24.x and higher versions you can make use this information directly in Nero Video.

Easily find your photos with new AI and smart detect information
Let’s start Nero Video and Make Slide Show.

Do you already have your media well organized in Nero MediaHome? Nero MediaHome has an easy way to group photos by people, places or AI tags. Now, in Nero Video, in v.24.x or higher version, just click on the “Group by” drop-down menu and new “Person”, “Places” and “AI Tags” will appear. There are also shortcuts for them on the My Media toolbar.

If you know exactly who you want to create a slideshow for, select “Person” and your photos in My Media library will be grouped by person so you can find photos that belong to the person you’re looking for.

If you’re coming back from a vacation somewhere, you can also group your photos by “Places”.

smart library_group by Places

If you only remember the general content of a photo, rather than the exact time, person or place, such as a photo on a playground, a certain old bike, or a photo for the birthday party at last year, just press ‘AI Tags’, and the photos will be grouped by content and what they were tagged with.

All of these are done for you automatically, without any work on your part.

Quickly create the perfect slide show with the help of Movie Themes

Now, just add what you need from the grouped photos to the storyboard and you’ve done a big part of the work of creating a video. Then use the Movie Themes that Nero Video has prepared for you. With no video editing skills, Nero Video will automatically collect your memories into a video that tells a good story – complete with a background music, titles, effects and transitions, intro and outro. If you don’t feel satisfied with this theme, you can easily change to a new theme with the click of a button to get a new look and feel for your video.

What is Nero AI Image Upscaling?

Whether you’re a blogger or designer, an online store owner or a student, poor photo quality can be a major obstacle when it comes to printing and sharing photos.

These problems are now a thing of the past – with Nero’s cutting-edge deep learning technology, you can now enlarge your photos by enhancing their details and increasing their resolution.

What is Nero AI Image Upscaler?

Nero AI Image Upscaler is an AI-powered tool that can enlarge image size and increase resolution with enhanced quality.

By reducing noise and sharpening the details, AI Image Upscaler lets works best on small images and photos.

How does Nero AI Image Upscaler work?

Nero AI Image Upscaler uses state-of-the-art image super resolution technology based on deep convolutional neural networks.

Our neural network is trained on an immense dataset of training photos. In detail, we used millions of low-resolution and high-resolution image pairs to train the software on upscaling images and to learn typical features of physical objects such as the bricks of walls, hair and skin.

After the network recognizes those features on the images, it will enhance those details based on its general knowledge of the world.

What is traditional image upscaling?

Before AI based image upscaling technology, it was virtually impossible to increase photo or image size without losing quality.

The best option, called Bicubic Interpolation – made your image unsharp and blurry.

What pictures work best with Nero AI Image Upscaler?

The system works best with unprocessed images that were not previously upscaled or pixelated by any other software tool.

Our main focus currently is upscaling physical contents with sharp corners like digital illustrations, images with sharp borders and contrasting textures (such as watches).

For images with small human faces or text, the result will be less obvious after processing.

Do you remove JPEG compression artifacts?

Yes, we automatically remove JPEG noise (also known as compression artifacts), if we detect an image with .jpg or .jpeg extension.

If for any reason you want to upscale your image without removing noise, you can input your image as a png-file.

Is there a size limit for the images I want to upscale?

Users of online version can use images with 1500×1500 pixels in size.

For desktop version there is no limit on the image size. However, the processing speed depends on your CPU and GPU limitations.

Processing a high-resolution image will take up more time. In addition, the result may be less obvious when upscaling a high-resolution image.

Where can I find Nero AI Image Upscaler?

Nero AI Image Upscaler will be part of the new Nero Platinum Suite package.

You can also access to upscale small images online or download the desktop app for free.

How to backup automatically when external backup drive plugged in?

Q: "I have a dedicated external hard drive to keep all my photos as a backup, because they are precious to me. Please recommend me a USB auto backup software which supports automatically backing up new files to my external backup hard drive when I plug it in. Every time when I want to copy the new photos from my computer to the backup drive, I have to find them out first and then copy them down, which is very troublesome."

Are you willing to automatically backup, sync or copy files when the USB external backup drive plugged in? With a simple setup, Nero BackItUp can help you do just that!

Step 1: Select a backup task

What is Nero AI video upscaling and how to turn on/off it?

Even people who are not so interested in watching movies may agree that watching videos in high resolution (such as Full HD, 4K) is a wonderful experience. With 4K monitors and TVs becoming more and more popular, are you still satisfied with watching blurry SD videos on 4K monitors or TVs?

What is traditional video upscaling?
Traditional upscaling or resize is the easiest way to stretch a lower resolution video onto a larger displayer. The pixels in the lower resolution image are simply repeated and averaged to fill all the pixels of the higher resolution display. The result is that the video fits a 4K monitor, but it usually looks blurry.

What is Nero AI video upscaling?
Nero AI video upscaling predicts high-resolution videos through an AI model and produces incredible clarity and enhanced details that cannot be reproduced by traditional upscaling, such as sharper edges, more realistic hair, and the landscapes with striking clarity.
