How to Use Software to Make a Video Out of Pictures

There are several video software that make video making a breeze for you as a content creator.

Using a Mobile App on a Device

If you only have a smart mobile device, you can still create videos with pictures using apps. Here's how to create one in 4 easy steps:

  • Install a smartphone app for creating videos, such as:

For iPhone users, these apps are easily accessible through the Apple App Store, and for Android users, Google Play.

Once installed, open the gallery on your phone and import the photos you want to include in your video.

  • Use the app's tools to edit and improve each photo if necessary. You can then trim and arrange the imported photos to create a video. 

Use the app's editing features to fine-tune details and produce a finished visual story.

  • Enhance the overall appeal of your video by adding background music, filters, and effects. Carefully select music that complements the theme or mood of your video.

6 Mistakes to Avoid When Making a Picture Video

Here are 6 mistakes you should avoid when making videos with pictures. 

1. Overloading with Images

Don’t use too many pictures so you don’t overwhelm your audience. Select only the most relevant and engaging images.

A study by Wistia found that viewers tune out after 2 seconds of static visuals. Choose impactful images that pack a punch, no more than 1 every 3-5 seconds.

2. Poor Image Quality

A Hubspot report revealed that over 90% of content marketers consider video quality very important.

So, ensure your pictures are high-resolution. Low-quality visuals can make your video look unprofessional.

3. Lack of Variety

Mix up your visuals to prevent monotony. Include images with different content, style, and composition to keep your audience glued. Think infographics, close-ups, action shots, and even humor.

4. Inconsistent Timing

Maintain a consistent pace when transitioning between pictures. Avoid abrupt changes that can disrupt the flow of your video.

A study showed that 72% of viewers find jarring transitions distracting and disruptive. Use smooth, consistent transitions to guide viewers through your story.

5. Ignoring Copyright

Always use images that you have the right to use. Respect copyright laws and permissions to avoid legal issues.

Remember, copyright infringement can cost you more than just a video.

6. Ignoring Audio Quality

Audio isn't an afterthought. Music and narration should enhance your message, not drown it out.

So, use appropriate audio; your goal is for viewers to consider the sound quality professional and engaging for a positive viewing experience.
