How do I make a video on Animoto?
First, make sure you're a logged in SmugMug subscriber. Then visit one of your galleries and click the Buy button. You'll notice a special owner-only section where you can choose "Create a Video". Click it, then click Animoto's "Get Started!" button on the overlay.
The photos and video clips from your gallery will be automatically loaded up into Animoto so you can have a cool new video created in just a few minutes. If you want to grab photos from a different gallery, just choose "Add More" and then select "retrieve from another site" and you'll see SmugMug's logo to click on.
One of our favorite things about Animoto is how easy it is. After you get your SmugMug photos and videos on there, all it takes is picking a song from their extensive royalty-free library and giving your video a name!
Animoto has additional help if you get stuck.
