Ever experience the torture of watching someone’s vacation slide show? While we all love great images, we love them more when they’re put to music.
Enter Animoto. It’s a tool that lets you take images (maybe that you have on Flickr, as we discussed in Do these make me look fat?), then choose some music (either provided or uploaded by you), and then converts the whole mix into a widgetized video. These videos aren’t just the Ken Burns effect over and over and over again (enough already!). Each one is unique, timed to the music you’ve selected.
If you have photos of your products, your customers, or anything related to your business and want a mini “music video,” here’s the bargain basement way to make it. The 15-second version is free … and once you’ve created it, you can use their tools to post it just about anywhere (Facebook, Blogger, etc.).
