    Web services to create videos with music

    WeVideo

    The first solution that I recommend you to consider to create videos with music online is WeVideo, a Web service that allows you to create photo slideshows full of animations and background music in a few clicks. It works on all major browsers and, through its free plan, offers the possibility of making videos in standard resolution (480p) with a maximum duration of 5 minutes.

    To create videos with music with WeVideo, linked to its home page, choose whether to register using your Google account, by clicking on the red button with G, or whether to create an ad hoc account on the site, by filling in the appropriate fields on the right and clicking on Get Started, then select the free plan by clicking on the button Try it in correspondence with the wording Free and click Personnel to indicate that you will use the service for purely personal purposes.



    Then click on x located in the upper right part of the tutorial box related to the use of the service and click on + Create New. Now you need to upload all the photos to use as the basis for your video. To do this click on green button in the shape of a cloud located at the top left of the tab Media, locate the images on your computer to include in your slideshow and drag them all into the gray box that appears at the top left.

    At the end of the upload, close the file selection screen (by pressing the located at the top right) and drag your photos into the WeVideo timeline following the order you prefer. Then left click on each image to access the menu where you can adjust parameters such as display time, effects and so on.



    Once you have set your preferences, press the icon of Magic wand located at the top left, select one of the themes available in the WeVideo gallery and click on the button Use this theme to instantly apply beautiful transition effects and background music to your photos.

    If you are not satisfied with the result or want to further customize your movie, you can double click on the rectangles that are between photos in the timeline to change the transition effects. You can also change the background music of the video by pressing the icon of music note (bottom left) and you can set start and end titles for the movie by clicking on the icon Text which is located at the top left.

    When you are done working on your video with music and photos, press the button Finish located at the top left, type the title you want to assign the video and click on the button Set and click on Finissh to start creating your movie.

    If you prefer, you can also select the icon of one of the online services supported by WeVideo and export your video directly to it. Within a few minutes, your slideshow will be ready and you can download it to your PC by clicking on the button Download located at the bottom left.

    Sharalike

    As an alternative to the above service, you can appeal to Sharalike to create videos with music. It is a free resource that can also be used by any Web browser and any operating system that allows you to obtain amazing results. It imprints a watermark in the lower left corner of the output videos, but this is a more than acceptable compromise for the features it offers. In fact, it allows you to take advantage of a wide range of ready-to-use templates and allows you to upload music from Spotify.



    To use it, connected to its main page, click on the button Get started and choose whether to register using your email address (button Signup with email) or your Facebook account (button Signup with Facebook). At the end of the operation, click on the button Exit help to hide the initial tutorial and then press the button Create an album (top left) to create a photo album to use in your slideshow.

    In the box that opens, type the title you want to assign to the album, press the button Choose files, select the photos you want to add to the album and click on Upload to start uploading it online. Once this step has been completed, select thealbum you created just now, use the mouse to arrange the images in the order you prefer and click on the button Smart Show (top right) to make your presentation.

    On the page that opens, choose the template to use for your video via the field Style, adjust the viewing time of each photo within the movie using the bar Speed and go to the field Music to choose the music to use as background for the slideshow. By clicking on the button Spotify and using the search field that appears on the screen, you can also choose a song from the famous music streaming service.

    To conclude, click on your button Save located in the right sidebar, type a name it's a Description for your video and go back to the right sidebar to share your video online, using the buttons located under the item Share.

    In addition to the online services that I have already indicated, you can create videos with music using other tools that can be used directly from the web browser window. Don't you believe it? Then read now my post dedicated to the topic. Have fun!


    Software to create videos with music

    Movie Maker (for Windows)

    Although underestimated by most, in reality the good old man Movie Maker from Microsoft is an excellent tool for creating videos with music. It is a very easy to use program, full of interesting effects and thanks to which it is possible to manage in total fluency several photos, videos and audio tracks at the same time.

    Unfortunately Movie Maker is no longer supported by Microsoft and is no longer available on the Redmond giant's website. To download it to your PC you need to turn to unofficial sources, such as Winaero, which offers the complete Windows Live Essentials 2012 package (which includes Movie Maker) in English via the MajorGeeks website.

Then select an audio file to use as background music for your video and edit transitions, captions and other elements of the video by clicking on them.

    If you prefer to act manually and don't want to take advantage of Movie Maker's predefined themes, you can add titles, captions and background music to your slideshow by clicking on the appropriate buttons on the tab Home of the software. To add transition effects between one photo and another, instead, you have to select an image from the Movie Maker timeline and you have to choose the effect you prefer most from the tab Animations.
