Quick & Easy Video Slideshow in Less Than 10 Minutes!


I have recently discovered a website that I am so excited to share with everyone! In seriously less than 10 minutes you can create a STUNNING video slideshow that looks professionally done! And the best part? It is incredibly easy AND it is completely free! Sound too good to be true? Nope! Check it out . .. .


Animoto is a site that I found that can turn your photos, video clips and favorite music into a video masterpiece. It is fast, FREE, and extremely easy! Then, when you are done you can send it via email, Facebook, Twitter and more. I seriously made mine in less than 10 minutes and my husband was SUPER impressed. He thought I spent hours!

For this video I chose some of my favorite pictures from our wedding along with “our” song. Check it out:

I had so much fun making these – I couldn’t do just one! For this one, I had some pictures from a 1940′s photo shoot that my husband and I modeled for. It was such a fun memory for both of us, but one of those things that you don’t know what to do with the pictures afterwards. So I made this video:

 Ready to make your own? Here is how it works:

  1. Go to animoto.com
  2. Click “sign up” – Sign up is completely free! With your free account you get unlimited video creating and sharing of 30 second videos. I think that 30 seconds is PERFECT for  this type of project. There are other paid options if you want to make a longer video too, but for a quick “I love You” – 30 seconds is just right!
  3. Once you are signed in – choose from a  selection of pre-designed styles. I suggest looking through the tab labeled “romantic”  but there are lots of options to choose from.
  4. Once your style is selected – click “Make a 30 second video for free” Sarina-slideshow-screenshot2_WebLogo
  5.  Now is the fun part! You can can upload pictures from your computer, but you can even take them from Facebook, Instagram, Flicker, SmugMug, Picasa, Photobucket and more – straight from this website! It is so easy! You can also add text, change the song – whatever you want to do to make it personal to you!
  6. When you are done creating, click ‘”preview” & when you officially approve: click “produce” Sarina-slideshow-screenshot1_WebLogo
  7. From here, you can share it via email, Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. I posted my video to Facebook and tagged my honey in it. It made his day!
