Tips and tricks for slideshow success

  1. Choose the right templateAnimoto’s storyboard templates are fully customizable, letting you choose based on theme, look, or even music. However, by picking a storyboard that closely matches your video theme, you can cut down on the time it'll take you to edit your message. There are dozens of pre-built storyboard templates available to select from, so you can quickly and easily find the right fit for your video.
  2. Use high-quality photos and video clipsTry to upload HD files to your Animoto project. Select video files that are 720p or 1080p, and PNG, JPG, or GIF photos that are about 2000 pixels on their longest side. This will give you consistent, crystal clear video.
  3. Allow space for textWhen choosing images or video clips, remember to leave space for what you have to say. Crop images to the left or right, or choose text animations that’ll let your words stand out, even if your visuals are more involved. You can also easily adjust text size or use filters or text tools to increase your text visibility and make sure your message comes through.
