Movie-making for the hard-of-thinking
February 9, 2015 12:11 PM   Subscribe

We have over 4,000 photos and videos from a recent trip to India and Bhutan. Can you suggest the least complicated, best program to use to make a movie, NOT using all 4,000 photos. My technical abilities are minimal but I'm up for a project. I have several PCs. Some of the photos were taken on an iPhone but mostly on a Canon. I'd like to add commentary and/or captions. Your ideas, great green hive mind?

The absolute easiest way to do this is with Windows Movie Maker which should be already installed on your PC.

Agree, Windows Movie Maker will let you drag and drop photos, text overlays and music. It's not the best program ever, but it's very simple and if you have a Windows computer, it's free. If you have a Mac, maybe you can use iMovie, but I've never tried it.

There are some websites that let you make slideshows for free. Essentially that's what you want to make, a video slideshow, not a necessarily a movie -- just photos accompanied with text and music. If you google "free slideshow video maker" you should find some other options.
