A big challenge for any photographer is how to store, share and present your photos to friends and family. Animoto is a super easy-to-use web based application that you can use on your computer (PC or Mac) IPad, IPod or IPhone to create videos using your photos plus music. The Lite program is free to use to make 30 seconds videos or you can subscribe to their Plus program for $30 per year . The Plus program gives you unlimted storage and the videos can be longer than 30 seconds. The Pro version is probably beyond the scope of the readers of this blog as it is geared to professional photographers and businesses.
After you create a new video using your photos, you can share it with friends on the web, Facebook, or Email.
In my next post I will create a screenflow video to show the easy steps in creating an Animoto video. Below is a short sample of my trip to visit family in the U.S.
