Create a Birthday Video Slideshow in 5 Steps

Step 1

Select a storyboard template

Animoto offers a variety of storyboards to choose from. Try one with a design you like or that fits your project. Not sure where to start? Our Happy Birthday Slideshow storyboard is a good pick.

Step 2

Add your photos and video clips

Personalize your video. Upload photos or video clips the birthday boy or girl will love, then drag and drop them right into Animoto. Don’t have enough images? Search our library of over 1 million Getty Images photos and videos.

Step 3

Make it your own

Personalize your video to give it the look you want. All of our storyboards can be changed to fit the mood of your video. Use our flexible design and style tools to easily change colors, transitions, and fonts.

Step 4

Choose a song

Top off your birthday video with a celebratory soundtrack. Try out one of the birthday songs in our library of licensed music, or upload your own licensed music to include your favorite birthday tune.

Step 5

Share your video

Once you’re happy with your video, it’s ready to finalize and share. Upload your birthday video to social sites like Facebook or Instagram, or share it with the recipient via email or text. You can also embed videos on your website or blog.
