How to Convert Photos into a Video Stream

Updated on October 16, 2012

Adding video to your articles can have profound and powerful effects. Book writers are finding their text stagnant without a video clip and are now using short slide shows with panning and movement to engage the reader. Website owners that want to make a statement to the online community are creating personal slide shows of family and friends, and even adding followers to their video clips for more enjoyment by all involved. Video is queen is some instances, but content is still the king on search engines.

Use Simple Photos and Illustrations to Bring Your Page to Life

With a handful of photos, you can produce video clips that will add to your page aesthetics and dramatize your points. Just follow the simple instructions in Windows Movie Maker to really add some power to your pages, article and product promoting information. The sky is the limit, and you can always add more if you increase your products or decide to write another book.

How to Convert Photos to a Video Stream on Movie Maker

Include the movement and sound of a video in your articles, hubs, and webpages. Create a unique and powerful video out of photos with Windows Movie Maker.

When you create progression and transitions in photos, the eyes of your readers naturally want to follow the movements of the images. Even the most vivid photos may not convey your message when compared with the moving stream of photos. With Windows Movie Maker, you can construct very versatile and interesting slide shows of high quality. Follow the simple steps to create something very special and worthy of your articles.

Video streams are powerful tools you can use on any acceptable medium to set the mood, theme, or context. Most likely, the software is loaded on your desktop, and you’ve probably have already used it. With just a few steps, and some good photos, anyone can make an affordable stream. Just follow the instructions on the video, and see what you can create.

Things You Need

  1. Windows Movie Make
  2. Photos to transform to video
  3. .Royalty Free Music (for free)
  4. A microphone for narration

Bullet Points with a Short Video Stream

Make a short video stream available to highlight the points of your article, or explain the content in an organized fashion. The stream will increase attention and give your article a polished and professional look. A video stream designed specifically for your article or blog is very impressive.

Business or Instructional Theme

Create a Theme for Your Book or Article

Making videos to match your book or article theme is very popular. You can heighten your readers’ senses with a theme-based video created out of photos related to your content. The video sparks curiosity, or adds relevance to the writing. Readers want to see more.

Create a Theme for Your Book or Article

Engage Readers with How to Videos

Place each photo in step by step order and achieve a video that moves and stimulates the senses. If your article contains many steps and explanations, you can add as many photos as needed, include a narration, or instructional text, all organized in a moving flow of information.

Have fun and create your video stream and post to social media, webpages, hubpages, and any other space for videos.
