In Depth

A photo slideshow can liven up any event. Teachers can create them with pictures of students to show everything that's happened in the last year. A camp slideshow can look back on fond memories of a summer. You and your wedding guests can commemorate all the times you've had together. They're even useful at the office, where they can put a human face on the work that you do.

Most people are familiar with slideshows made in PowerPoint, but if you aren't using it on a daily basis, it's best not to pony up the cash for an expensive program. And though everyone has sat through a series of photos popping up on a screen, video content is something that's normally left to professionals, despite all the videos you've recorded on your iPhone. Luckily, there's now a way to create great presentations complete with music and smooth transitions that will wow your audience and make the occasion special.

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 explore your creativity.

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'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.

Still images aren't your only option. You can also record activity in your browser to explain work students have done. And with the desktop version, you can record your entire computer screen, including activity in other programs. 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 at your wedding can see themselves and how they've impacted your relationship. 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 grandparents can watch the video again and again since it's available online.
