I’ve recently discovered Animoto, a service that lets you easily create inspiring photo presentations, with music and motion. You just have to deliver some photos from your laptop or from services like flickr, select a music from Animoto or again your laptop, and done. Animoto analyzes both, photos and music and creates a inspiring video which you can distribute by email, download or post in your facebook account or blog.
Even some less good pictures make a good presentation, like my poor shots from Silvester 2007. Unfortunately the posting to my blog didn’t work out, so you have to go to Animoto.com to check it yourself.
It is plain fun. It is easy to use. And it does the artist part for you.
