How to Make a "This Is Your Life" Video

Select Software

There are many options today for computer software that you can use to build a video.  I started by buying the Adobe Photoshop package, which is quite powerful but expensive.  After a while however, I ended up going back to the software I had used before for other projects.  Sacrificing the power of Photoshop for the familiarity of Ulead proved to be a good choice for me.
Whatever software you decide to go with, here are some things to consider:
  • If you have experience with some software, I suggest you go with that.
  • Do you want to stick to pictures, or do you want to add videos?  Videos do add a lot, but they increase the complexity.
  • I highly recommend using software that automatically provides some movement animation to still photos (e.g., panning in and out, moving to the side, etc.).  It is a very nice effect to have to make the production look more professional and to avoid it being boring.

Here is the software I ended up using and found to work well.

See the "Useful Links" page for some ideas on software to use.
