The specifics of creating a clip from a photo with music on a PC

If you decide to mount a clip from photos for free, then please consider a few important points:

  • Choose good quality photos and at least medium size (at least 600 pixels wide);
  • Try to avoid duplicating images when the same object is taken almost from the same point several times;
  • The music should correspond to the subject of the photo, and at the same time the audio quality should be at a good level;
  • Consider the contrast name of the clip, and its visual introduction;
  • It is also worth pondering the harmonious ending of the video and captions.
