I received a free pass to try out Animoto, a website that turns your short videos and photos into cool music videos in a few minutes. I've agonized over iMovie attempting to do things like this, but lack the patience or skills to complete anything. With Animoto, you just upload your pictures, choose some music, and they do the rest. The video here took about 15 minutes to upload the pictures, set the music, and then wait for it to be created. The hardest part was figuring out what pictures to use.
If you sign up, you can do a 30-second video for free, but an all-access pass for one year to create longer videos is $30/year. You can upgrade to an HD version to burn onto a DVD for an additional $5 per video, if you need it for a special occasion. I'm thinking about doing one for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary next year.
If you sign up using this link, you can get $5 off an all-access pass, and I earn a discount off future purchases.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary temporary all-access pass to try out Animoto, but no other compensation or incentive for writing this review or trying out the product.
