Animoto Makes Exciting Slideshows From Your Photos

Turn Your Pics Into a Music Video With Animoto

I love iPhoto's slideshow feature, but if you aren't a Mac fan (or even if you are), and want a fresh, simple, and quick way to put some music to your pics, check out Animoto.

Animoto is different from a regular slideshow, since the program does all the work for you. It analyzes your photos you upload (via your computer, Flickr, or another photo-sharing website) and your music choice, then creates a custom slideshow (or more appropriately, music video) for your pics. This is not just the same ole boring fade-in, fade-out slideshow you're used to — this site uses some sweet touches and effects to keep things exciting. But more than just an attention-getting slideshow, the best part is that it's free (there's a fee if you want to create longer videos).
