Saying ‘I love you’ is easy to do in person, but when said through pixels it can lack sentimentality. However, there are a few ways to do this digitally that appropriately convey the message’s emotion, and one of them is through video.
Our expert community have curated this list of 10 romantic Adobe After Effects slideshow templates available on VideoHive. They’re completely customizable, and will give your other half that special feeling when it pops up on their wall.

Down memory lane
This next one’s a story of love and heartbreak. Made by VideoHive author, Wayman, it was created as a gift for a girl he loved, dated, but who eventually left him. He inserted photos of him with her, wrote some heartfelt messages that he never got to deliver when they were together, and sent it as a parting gift. He would eventually remake this slideshow and upload it to our marketplace where it has sold over 1300 times, more than any of his other projects. “Perhaps people feel it was made with love,” he suggests.
