Who has time to flip through a photo album these days? Slidemotion is a tool that modernizes photos by turning them into moving videos – complete with background music and all the other flourishes people have come to expect from professionally designed video montages.
Putting together your first video with Slidemotion doesn’t have to take any longer than three minutes. Assuming you already have the latest version of Microsoft Silverlight installed on your computer, you can get started by clicking “Create new video” and uploading the images you’d like to use. Add up to 15 images from your hard drive or Facebook account. Each photo is its own “section” in the movie, and you can add unique songs – which either come from your computer or Slidemotion’s collection – and overlay text to as many sections as you like. You can also edit specific images by rotating, cropping, or zooming in. When you’re done with your masterpiece, click “Finalize” and “Complete.” Slidemotion will send you an email when your video is ready to view and share.
Heavy Facebook users will appreciate Slidemotion’s easy integration with the social networking platform, making it easy to turn entire albums worth of photos into memorable videos in mere minutes. Slidemotion is a great tool for individuals looking for fresh ways to preserve their vacation memories, as well as small business owners looking for low-cost ways to market their companies online.
