Step 1

Choose a storyboard template

Animoto gives you dozens of storyboards to choose from. Grab one with a design you liek or that fits your project best. If you're not sure where to start, our Holiday Event Invitation storyboard is a good pick for a holiday slideshow or Christmas video card.

Step 2

Add photos and video clips

Give your video a personal touch. Upload your own holiday photos or footage, then drag and drop them right into Animoto. Don't have enough images? Search our library of Getty Images photos and videos to find what you need.

Step 3

Make it your own

Give your video the look and feel you want. All of our storyboards can be changed to fit the video you want to make. And our flexible design and style tools let you change colors, fonts, and transitions in just a few clicks.

Step 4

Select a song

Add some holiday cheer to your video's soundtrack. Try out one of the holiday songs in our library of licensed music, or upload your own licensed music to include your favorite Christmas carol or Hanukkah tune to your video.

Share your video

Once you're happy with your video, you can finalize it and share wherever you like. Upload your holiday video to social sites like Facebook or Instagram, or share a holiday greeting via email, text, or your website.
