New "Video"

Every have something right under your nose and not know it?

In one of my recent posts, I mentioned I was going to try to make some videos for my web sites. That was rather brave since I had no idea how I was going to do it.

Then I was poking around with my software program, Picasa. I use that to down load my pictures from my digital camera and to do easy editing of my pictures. While staring at the screen as something was happening, I noticed a little icon and when I moused over it I saw "movie". Lo and behold, I can make simple movies out of my pictures.

After a few misses I have the above "video". Now isn't anything I planned, so it is just some recent pictures I took to put new items up on my 1000 Markets web store. However, it did work and it was right under my nose.

Now I have to do some refining and purposeful to get something that I really want to share. Maybe there are some special effects?? I'll try reading the help file. (What a concept!)

So, what do you think? Does it work on your computer? I'm expecting it may not on all computers but we'll see. Let me know.



  1. How about that! It worked on my computer. Great job, Bev. I've also used Picaso a little and didn't realize you could do movies. I'll be investigating it. Thanks

  2. It's a video, but it's a slideshow. Definitely works though. Good for you!

  3. Great way to imbed pictures in your blog Bev.
