Animoto allows you to create a professional looking video out of still pictures, in a hurry. From the time I signed up to the time I emailed my wife the completed video took 20 minutes tops. That’s including the initial signup process and playing around time.
The coolest feature of the application is that it allows you to easily integrate music into the video and automagically “shapes” the video based on the beats of the song! The one downside is that their music library is fairly limited but you can upload your own music.
You can also share the video via tweets, Facebooking it, or embedding it into your site/blog.
I made the video below to entertain my wife but thought I’d share so you can get an example of a final product.
