Create Awesome Music Videos Out Of Your Photos With Animoto

13Mar08

Animoto is a service that helps you create amazing videos out of your photos with very little effort.  There are just a couple of steps involved because Animoto handles the creative side, resulting in really cool videos.  All you need to do is upload photos from your computer or grab them from one of the supported photo sharing sites.  You can drag and drop your photos into any order you like and even place a spotlight on specific photos which will tell Animoto that you want these photos highlighted in the video.  The next step is adding music.  You can upload music from your computer or select music from the Animoto music lounge.  Give your video a name and a brief description, and you’re done.  You’ll need to wait a while for the video to produce, but the end result is worth the wait.  You can embed the videos in your blog or social networking site, email them, export them to YouTube, or download them.  There are so many ways Animoto can be used – from promoting a product that you originally only had photos of to creating a fun music video of you and your friends on vacation.  Animoto is free for a 30 second video and 3 dollars for a full length, which I think is a more than fair price.  Here’s my screencast tour of Animoto:

    Molly,

    Always read your blog and this is one of the best sites you have showcased – great work.

  2. Animoto has been one of my favourite online apps for quite a while, and sometimes in workshops I encourage educators to use it with their classes. Now you’ve provided me with a terrific resource when I’m sharing Animoto! Thanks yet again. –Paul

  3. Thanks Richard, Paul. I really hope people try this one out. This is the type of service I think people won’t mind paying for to create full length videos.

    Do you know if you can download Animoto videos to your desktop, upload them to Veeple, add Veeple’s clickable links, and then repost video to YouTube, or your own site?
    Thank you
