Greetings for the Holidays or whatever is occurring in your life right now. Given the season, t’s likely that cameras… digital or phone… will be in high use in the next week or two. Will you be one comfortably taking photos or doing videos?
This post is an OVERVIEW of different ways of creating videos for easy connection with those whom you care about and/or for simple relaxation.
There are links to playlists I’ve created on YouTube for you. There is also an opportunity to request notification for a free group simple video creation overview and Q&A session on what’s covered below.
And, if you are stuck for a gift for a Tech-Challenged person there is a link for a 15 minute exploratory session to see if a gift certificate for private coaching is a fit.There is also a special on Banana Sky DVD, a video slideshow with healing music.
Creating and Sharing Slideshow or Other Videos
Family and friends have been celebrating my birthday with me this past week in a variety of ways. For me the celebration has been continuing as I play with photographing and video recording the changes in buds and flowers in a gift of Candy Cane Lilies from one of my sons and his family.
Do you expect to be taking photos of family members? friends? objects? Even if you are not connecting with anyone in-person, food or shapes and textures that catch your eye from nature or your environment can always become a celebration.
On a Mac slideshows can be created in the PHOTOS program; on a PC by using Windows Media. Instructions are easy to follow directly as you work on the computer or from various YouTube instructional videos. You can also add music so that you can appreciate them further, perhaps find relaxation as you watch.
And by easily uploading to YouTube or Facebook you can share with others. If you have not yet tried it, those of you on Facebook will discover how simple it is to post videos there now AND very quick. Even Facebook comments are now accepting videos in those spaces.
In preparing for this article, I created a slide show video using the iMovie app on my iPhone. I’ve had the App downloaded for ages and always thought it was too complicated for me to bother with.
