I can’t believe summer is almost over and the kids go back to school on Tuesday. Gosh – they just finished school on June 17th! Blink!
I took so many pictures this summer and I always struggle with the aftermath of taking all of those pictures and getting them off the memory cards and organized in a way that is fun to go back and look at again and again.
Macro shot I took of a New Mexican thistle.
It has become a tradition for me to produce an iMovie after each vacation we take. I’m behind in that task, to say the least. Yesterday I decided I need to hunker down and get my summer ’11 photos and movies completed. The kids love to watch these over and over and my husband takes them on his iPad when he travels. I’m hoping my hard work of bringing these photos “to life” with movement and carefully chosen music tracks will help create lasting family memories!
If you are curious how iMovie works (with photos) take a look. Most people think of using it for video and I do, but I love it for photos as well. A few of these pics you may have seen in my post right after the trip, but there are lots of new ones if you want to see more eye candy from Taos and Santa Fe.
One of these days I am going to create a movie with jewelry photos. If you don’t have a Mac, there are tons of easy photo slideshow programs (Google it) that help bring jewelry to life and could make you look like a real marketing pro! It could also help bring some search engine traffic to your store or blog from YouTube…
Let me know what you think. These movies are a labor of love!
