I found a new way to share vacation pictures – Animoto (www.animoto.com). You can sign up for free – the directions on the site are specific and easy to follow. You simply upload your photos, choose background music and add details.
For free you can upload 8-15 images. I uploaded the images without resizing from my camera – just to see if it would work and it did. You could upload your own music (if you have the copyright!). The slideshow ends up being about 30 second.
Once created it’s easy to post a link to your video on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Also it’s easy to grab the code for the video to embed it into your site.
If you want something longer, you can upgrade to a paid account.
If you didn’t have vacation pictures you could use this for a tour of a house for sale, a resort, a campus, your products…
I had vacation pics for my test: http://tinyurl.com/m4mmjz
