Turn Photos Into Videos

Updated on August 19, 2016

So, I am a little bit a photo collector with digital images accumulating on my hardrive, and I need to clear these off to make more space on my computer. However, I do not want to simply delete my photographs, even if I have used these in hubs and blog posts, so now I am turning these into photo gallery videos that I post on YouTube. I do not think my little photo gallery videos are going to be the most popular videos people will seek out and watch again and again, but these are a good way for me to preserve my pictures memories as slideshows. I do not use music for my photo gallery videos because I prefer simplicity, and I want to only use my own creations when I post something online. However, if you are into photo editing and prefer to create something a bit more sleek, then upload your own music to the photo gallery videos. I am using Windows Movie Maker to create my videos because this is the free program that came with my computer, and it works well for my needs.

The picture above is from the photo gallery I made of my photograph from the San Bernardino Mountains in December of 2010.

Above is a video photo gallery of the pictures I took up in the San Bernardino Mountains in December of 2010. There are quite a few photographs of barren winter trees, which are quite interesting because their limbs are so prominent during the colder months of the year.

The photograph I took of the baseball field back in March of 2011 was during a cloudy day, which is part of the following photo gallery video.

Above is the video I created of my walk on a cloudy and blustery day back in March of 2011. I have always loved to remember specific dates and times in the past, and these photo gallery videos are ideal for helping me create a digital journal of sorts.

The firey colors in the sunset was quite mesmerizing to photograph back in April of 2011. This photograph is part of the next photo gallery video.

The video above is a slideshow with the pictures I took of the lava infused sunset back on April 1, 2011.

This photo of the sunset above looks like a volcano flowed into the night sky. One of my favorite things to photograph are the Southern California sunsets, and this make mesmerizing video photo galleries.

One of my favorite photographs from the photo gallery is of the fallen oak tree I found on a foggy day.

Above is the video of my walk in the forest up in the San Bernardino Mountains. There are also photographs from the drive up the Rim of the World Highway, and a few of the spring flowers in bloom.

A digital camera is always a fun way to record your memories. You should consider getting one for your next vacation if you are looking to upgrade to a nicer camera that can take better pictures.

      What a beautiful idea! I like your shows and love this hub. I don't have Movie Master but there are also programs that are free to use on line. I think this is a great idea for using old photos. Voted up and more.

      Thanks SweetiePie for writing and thank you mary615 for sharing! I've used Movie Maker before but this gives me new ideas and inspiration~ I always hate deleting photos too, but when you have thousands of them, it's hard to find the specific one you are looking for sometimes~

      As always you have some beautiful photos. I have to say though, I love your idea of creating videos. I might have to do this as a means to document all my photos. Mainly because I have a youtube account but because I think this would be a great thing to do for my family who doesn't get to see us more than once or twice a year! What a great idea!

      Thanks, dinkan53! You can perhaps try making your own videos with photos lying around on your hardrive.

      This is a very good idea. Your photographs are beautiful, I like the way you can feel a mood when you see them rather than just looking at neutral photos. Very nice job.
