High-speed video slide show! (or “Pummelvision”)

Posted by

I ran across this neat online tool a few weeks ago called Pummelvision that will create a video of any selection of your photos from various online photo repositories and throw a simple, energetic beat soundtrack on it.  It is no more than a photo slide show, but it is done at high speed, which encourages you to use more photos than you would use in a traditional photo slide show.

This can give a really neat effect, showing a lot of the things you have done over time.  Obviously, you can choose specific photo sets for particular effect, whether that is a kid-based slide show (of a specific year, age, school-year, project, all birthdays, etc.) or a specific vacation, or a style of photography that you have done…  Like I said, no different than any slide show you can make yourself, but like many things available online these days, it is a fast & easy tool to create something that may just have an emotional impact.

Here is the “Pummelvision” of my entire Flickr photo stream from the beginning through February 2, 2011.  Check it out, and feel free to add links to your own slide show videos (of any sort, from anywhere, doesn’t need to be Pummelvision) in the comments.
