Web 2.0 Tools: Slideroll

Published by under Web 2.0 tools and tagged: , ,

This site caught my interest as I was helping one of my workshop attendees to create her blog for her artworks. I wanted to find a good photo slideshow creator to showcase her pastels.

Site: www.slideroll.com
Registration: Very effortless
Cost: Free and Pro (Of cause I am the freebie queen!)

What can you do:
Create slideshows using pictures from your computer/Facebook/Flickr or any Url for that matter. Add music to your sideshow and embed/share it.

Creating your slideshow:

I found it to be very intuitive and I could choose music to go with my slideshow (I used beth’s bird pictures from Flickr). Their music clip was a bit short for my slideshow and it automatically repeated.

See: http://slideroll.com/?s=jsunqbb6

The biggest problem was, that for the life of me, I could not get it to embed into either WordPress (where we created her blog) or Ning. I have not tried Blogger or Facebook yet.

So I downloaded the video creator that can be found on the Slideroll site and in now time at all, I converted the slideshare to video!! I could also choose new music off my computer to accompany the slideshow. Very cool indeed. I then saved the video onto my harddrive.

Now this opens up lots of possibilities for me…

  • I can now upload it to YouTube/Facebook/where-ever
  • I can cut it to a DVD to give to Beth as a present
  • I don’t have to be online to watch the video
