My Other Half introduced me to this last week. He loves anything new and ‘gadgety’ on the ‘net and he’s always showing me stuff, most of which I only have a passing interest in, but I immediately liked the look of this.
I have a ‘Dream Builder’ application attached to my website www.beingamillionaire.com/dreambuilder , and it’s basically a series of pictures that subscribers can pick and choose to create a ‘Dream Album’.
I’ve got some great looking pictures on there and ‘Animoto‘ seemed like the ideal way to showcase some of them.
O.H uploaded a handful of pictures from the ‘Love’ category on dreambuilder, added some basic text, chose some music and Animoto does the rest. You can check out the results here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VycKk_tYBus
Once you’ve created the video, you can leave it on Animoto and direct people there, send it to YouTube or place it on your own site.
Considering that the basic package is free, you can create some fantastic and professional looking content for your site or to upload elsewhere.
