Application to create videos with photos and online music

If you are interested in using aapplication to create videos with photos and music online, this is the part of the tutorial that interests you most, since I am going to examine some solutions that work directly from the browser, without having to install anything on the PC.



Adobe Spark

One of the best online applications for making videos with photos and music is Adobe Spark. It is a free tool, working upon registration, developed by the famous software house producing Photoshop, Premiere and other well-known programs for multimedia production. It is simple to use and is compatible with all major browsers, without having to install any additional plugins.

To use it, go to its home page, click on the button Start now, select the access mode you want to use (eg. Continue with Google, Continue with Facebook, Continue with Apple, etc.) and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete this operation.

Once registered, give a title to your first project, click on the button NEXT and decide whether to start from a model or start from scratch. The first time you use the Adobe Spark editor, you will be shown a short video tutorial about how it works: after seeing it, click on the button OK.

As you can see, the Adobe Spark editor is quite simple to use: at the bottom there are a series of slides, which you can delete, duplicate or increase in number. To carry out this last operation just click on slide with the (+) button in the center. For the other features mentioned, however, you need to click the button (...) placed on each slide by passing the mouse over and select the items of your interest (eg. Duplicate, Delete, Etc.).

To insert a photo in a slide, select one (from the bottom of the page), click on the button capacitor positive (+) lead placed in the center of the slide (top) and click on the item Gallery in the menu opened on the same. By doing so, you will be able to insert images from your computer (Upload the photo), from the Adobe database (Find free photos) or other services supported by the service (eg. dropbox, Google Photos, etc.). To insert music, however, click on the item Music (top right), to add a music track from the Adobe database or, possibly, to load it from your computer (Add my music).

When finished, click on the button Preview (above), so you can preview the final result. When you are satisfied, click on the button Share o Download (both located at the top), so as to share it online or to save it locally.
