We present an algorithmic system capable of automatically generating a music slide show given a piece of music with lyrics. Different from previous approaches, our method generates slide shows using personal photos which are without annotation. We introduce a novel algorithm to infer the relevance of personal photos to the lyrics, based on which personal photos are optimally selected to match the music. The proposed system first detects the keyframes of the input music. For each music keyframe, it optimally selects an image from the personal photo collection via our image content analysis procedure. Once the keyframe images have been selected, the in-between frames are then generated via an image morphing process. Experiment results have shown that our method can successfully generate music slide shows which follow the rhythms of the music and at the same time match the lyrics.
