For those looking to add a little spice to some photos on their blog, there’s a great new video tool called Animoto. The website allows you to upload photos (or import from Facebook, SmugMug, Picasa or Flickr), say from your latest company conference, add music from a pre-selected list or import your own mp3. It then goes away and creates a unique video based on the photos and music. See below for an example:
You can create unlimited 30 second videos for free (Animoto Shorts), or extended length (and downloadable) ones for $3 each or $30 for a year (or $25 with this code: tlobsvqg), and I almost guarantee you’ll sign up for one of the options when you see the results! Short video creation can take about 10 minutes, and if you’re not happy with the results you can just press Remix, and as no two videos are the same you’ll get something else. Give it a try for free.
