Fun with photos

I’ve been playing with some Web 2.0 photo tools this week and realizing how simple it is to make fun experiences. Here’s a slideshow I put together with Slide.

This took all of three minutes. Select a theme, transition, music, size. Hit Save. Cut-and-paste the code.

I didn’t even have to re-upload the pictures. Slide pulled the pictures from my Facebook account.

Here’s another slideshow with different effects. (If you haven’t been to the Getty Villa, go!) These pictures were pulled from flickr. In both cases, the meta data was also pulled in; I didn’t have to retype captions.

With another click, I could add the slideshows to my Facebook profile.

Unfortunately, music licensing being what it is, you can’t upload your own music. You have to select from the small selection that Slide offers.
