In Depth

A memorial slideshow is a wonderful way to remember someone you've lost. Often you are left with family photos or home movies that you'd love to share, but no good way to display them. You don't have fancy video editing software, and paying a professional filmmaker can be really expensive.

Thankfully, there is now a free way to create a vibrant slideshow that celebrates the life of someone you love and includes photos and videos along with narration and music so you can do justice to their memory and retain creative control over what appears on screen. This is great for commemorating someone in the workplace, a relative, or an old school friend who won't be joining the reunion this year.

Ezvid Wikimaker is a free online video editor that lets you create slideshows that contain both photo and video elements. All editing is done in your browser, so you can work on it from anywhere. Your finished videos will be hosted online, meaning they can be shared with anyone. It takes only a short time to learn, while giving you the ability to get things just right.

Once you sign up for an account, you can create your first wiki. Choose a title and enter it up top. Wikimaker videos begin with written text. Enter your first paragraph into the box and hit "Enter." Wikimaker will generate a voice synthesis, meaning the words you've typed are read aloud as narration for your video, along with free music to act as a soundtrack. You don't have to just show photos without context. Instead, the narration can explain things about the life of your friend and why these events were so meaningful.

You'll see on the left side of your screen that Wikimaker has already loaded free fair use images and video clips to match certain words in your paragraph. When those words are spoken in your video, the images will appear. Some images have multiple options, which you can see by hovering over them. You can watch your first section immediately, so you can listen back to your writing and make any edits you wish to make.

If any images aren't relevant, you can remove them by clicking the "X" in the lower left corner of the thumbnail. You can also search among a vast library of free clips to use. But you don't have to stop there. With Wikimaker Capture, you can add your own content. Wikimaker Capture is available as a Chrome browser extension or as a free download for Windows and Mac. With both versions, you can capture images from the web. And with the desktop version, you can resize them to crop out unwanted information or draw on them to add emphasis.

With both versions, you can capture images from the web.

Still images aren't your only option. You can also record activity in your browser to explain work your friend did that they were always proud of. And with the desktop version, you can record your entire computer screen, including activity in other programs, so you can add clips from your friend's favorite movie. The images and recordings you've made will appear in the "Ready" section and can be linked to words in your paragraph. With recordings, you can choose the exact starting frame so video clips begin right when you want them to.

Wikimaker lets you upload files from your computer, so you can add your own still images and video clips to make your video more entertaining. You can use photos taken yourself, or upload home movies so everyone can see those embarrassing moments from when you were young. You can even scour a friend's Instagram page and surprise them by including their snapshots in your video.

Just repeat this process until you've made a full video. Submit your wiki for publishing, and it will be posted to Ezvid Wiki. You can share the URL with anyone so it can be watched from any computer, and you don't need to pay for web hosting. You can access it on the Internet at your event, so there's no need to bring a laptop or a flash drive with you, and loved ones can watch the video again and again since it's available online.
