Picture tools

There are a variety of tools you can use to display pictures. I'll add more as I find them. Individual tutorials available on request! Click on the heading name to get to the website.

Voicethread

You can use voicethread as a way of displaying pictures - especially if you want people to comment on them.



Picture Trail

This site has some fancy transitions and frames - you could spend a lot of time playing!



Animoto

This nifty site creates 30 sec movies - you can upload photos and movies and put them all together. You can even send the movie to youtube as well. Their upgrade option allows you to make longer movies.


PhotoPeach

This tool allows you to add music & captions. You upload each picture but the process is fairly simple.

Slideshare

This is done by first creating a powerpoint with your pictures and then uploading to slideshare - a very painless task.



Youtube

Most of us are familiar with youtube. If you have already made a movie with your computer software (moviemaker) then you can upload it to youtube for further sharing.



Masher

Masher is a cool tool where you can combine all sorts of ingredients to come up with a finished product.
