We’ve found a way to create your own photo videos where you’re the stars.
Animoto.com is a cool website that lets you create your own photo videos set to the music of your choosing. Imagine pictures of the kids set to your family’s favorite hits, or snapshots of good friends over the years with memorable tunes playing in the background.
Just upload your photos and music, insert text, and arrange it all the way you want it. (This part is so fun, even kids will beg to help!) In a matter of minutes you can have something that looks TV-worthy.
Founders Brad Jefferson and Jason Hsiao have produced shows for MTV and ABC, and knew that with the right technology, even absolute beginners could create a professional-looking photo montage that makes a perfect gift. Thanks to them, the recipient will be impressed— and you’ll have something adorable to share with your Facebook friends. Phew.
