In a diaporama images supported by music and sometimes in addition by narration tell a story.  Above I am showing  a fragment of my diaporama 'The Creation'.

In a diaporama two or more projectors are used alternatingly to fade one slide into the other.  The speed in which one projector is extinguishing while the other is glowing on, is determinating the change and sometimes during changes the slides briefly produce a surprising new image, the famous 'third image'.

The art of creating a good diaporama is: invent a story; select the pictures; make a choice for matching music, possibly combined with narration; and program the fades of the slides in relation to the music. Afterwards the finished program will manage the projectors.  In this way a diaporama is automated and can be showed over and over.
