For this Thing, I started with Animoto. It was easy to create an account and upload photos. Unfortunately, I got hung up on trying to load some music or sound and ended up abandoning the project on that site. I decided to go back and upload photos on my Flickr account. After exploring my Flickr account a little, I figured out how to create a slideshow, then cut and pasted the HTML into a blog posting. Voila! I can see the benefits of using these types of features for sharing photos of vacations or special events with our family and friends.
If our library had a Flickr account, it might be interesting to create short slideshows of service points in the library, or of new books.
