Adding a Animoto Slideshow

Animoto Slideshows  add a variety of cool transitions and music very simply to your blog.

To make a slideshow you first have to do register.

First off all select your theme.

For the free version you can upload no more than 15 photos as the slideshow lasts 30 seconds. I suggest you put your photos into one folder and go CLICK + SHIFT on the first photo in the list and then click on the last photo and all of them will be selected.

You can fiddle with the music and photo order but for a quick production just click preview and produce your movie.

That will whirr away for a bit as Animoto renders the video.

When the rendering is done you will get an email telling you or you can just grab the embedding code and put it straight on your blog. Look for the SHARE tab.

Highlight and copy the code.

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

Now go to your blog post. Click on the HTML tab and paste the code where you want it to be. Click back on the COMPOSE tab to see how it will look. Publish when you're happy.

I often put the html embed code at the bottom of my writing in a blog post so I know that I don't break the previous code.

Make a video of your own at Animoto.
