Oh my, what a holiday! I found a tool online that greatly makes photo slideshows in a jiffy. Plus, I do NOT have to download anything...and they customize unique movies just for you! So how do you do it? Go to Animoto but prepare your photos and background music if you don't like their music library. If your photos are readily stored in one of the photo-hosting sites out there, then you only need a few clicks to get your movie. What a way to end 2008!
This site is such a godsend to those who have gazillions of photos and lots of free time... *****!
Here's my holidays sample :)
