Animoto is a great online tool with which you can create custom videos with your photos, clips and music.
Instead of sharing your photos in a boring slideshow on the TV, why don’t you share them as an original online video with background music? Animoto can lend you a hand; it’s really easy to use and the results are very impressive.
The whole process in Animoto is divided into three main steps. First of all, you need to choose the type of video you want, which will define the transitions used between photos and video clips. Then, it’s time to upload your material, or use the videos and images provided by Animoto. You can also import photos from Flickr, Facebook or Picasa.
The last step is uploading the music you want to use as soundtrack for your video – or, again, use any of the tracks offered by Animoto. With all these elements, Animoto creates a unique video presentation that can be easily shared with family and friends on social networks, embedded into your blog or published to YouTube.
The only drawback to this great tool is that the free account is quite limited: you can only choose from a few video styles, and videos themselves are limited to 30 seconds.
With Animoto you can create professional video presentations with your photos, videos and music in just a few steps.
