Advice please re YouTube

I was going to write about a road trip we did a few years ago but wanted to put up a slideshow on YouTube to go with it. However, I’ve discovered the slideshow creator on YouTube has been discontinued. I guess I’ll need to download some sort of program that can create a new slideshow for me. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations please on the best way to do this? I’d be very grateful for any advice. In the meantime I’m going through boxes and sorting things ready for a garage sale which my sister and I will be holding on the 9th of March. My sister is building a granny flat on her son’s property and needs to downsize. I’m decluttering here and there so a combined garage sale seemed a good idea. The photo is of our vehicle when we returned from the road trip. I was really proud of all the mud on it. But how can I write about the trip and only share one photo?

I use VideoPad Video Editor...it is a freeware program, you might download it and see what you think.
The award-winning VideoPad video editing software has all the features you need to make a quality movie. Easily edit videos, add effects/audio and share with friends.

@JudyEv I've been using this and its companion (WavePad Sound Editor) for several years now (at least 7 or 8), although last year I finally purchased the full versions of both because I needed a few things for a project that weren't available in the free versions (I was working with multi-track sound recordings and wanted some enhanced video features)

@JolietJake I was about to ask if you eventually have to buy it so now I know. It's past my bedtime so I'll have another go at loading my photos tomorrow. At the moment I'm still trying to get the images to show for x seconds each. They seem to each load about four times. But as I said, I'll have another go tomorrow.
@LadyDuck I did not paid this ticket : it was giving me two days to clean the plate and bring the car to a police station or a gendarmerie to control that it was cleaned. If it was done the ticket was cancelled. I did it as soon as I came to home. The plate had just a spot of mud masking a letter.
The only software I used is Imagination, but it has no Windows version (Linux only) and is rather old now. It is just a graphic interface to ffmpeg, as ffmpeg can create a slideshow or a video at the command line, with many transition effects available, but it is not something that I would recommend : ffmpeg is overgifted for anything about videos but is indigestible, like many command line software, even for somebody like me using it since about 10 years. The photo is nice, but this car deserves at least two tickets. I got one once because my plate was dirty, it was very clean compared to yours.

Great idea to downsize while you can in this opportunity- you will feel lighter and free-er in a way when you unload a lot of unwanted things that clutter you up. Don't worry I can imagine the fun time you had just looking at that car-- :)

@JudyEv I thought it would be tough and some of it was, but it is freeing as well. Don't want my kids to have to deal with tons of stuff that I already tried to give them and they were having very little of that! lol! They just don't appreciate what we did. Oh well- I didn't like my mom's stuff too much but still appreciate a few things.

@JudyEv Oh, I didn't realize there was a rearview mirror, Glad you had that! I didn't know one could navigate a car with the rearview mirror. I will be waiting for your slideshow as I am curious about it as you always have great pictures!

I hope there's a way to get those pictures on YouTube again. I've always enjoyed your slide shows. I hope someone has the answer for you. Good idea having a joint rummage sale. One look at that car and I thought, it really needs a bath. Good picture.

I tried to find it on youtube but was unable to. I thought it was just me being daft and not being able to find it. Shame they removed it. I can't understand why they have removed it. Now that would have been worth a bob a job wash by a boy scout. You would certainly have got your monies worth there! LOL
