My Stories

Okay, it’s official. MS Photo Story rocks. I wrote about it earlier, and Paul Thurrott said to download it immediately, so I did. And it could not be more exciting. It’s really easy to get it to do what you want, it makes its own background music for you, and it’s one of those programs that actually gets the creativity flowing. You see one demo of what it can do, and all of a sudden the ideas just come spurting out, almost faster than you can keep track of them. This might be how I’ll send pictures to family from now on, just throw together a slideshow like this.

Anyway, here’s my first story, cobbled together in about an hour with pictures from our trip to the Space Needle this summer. It’s 52 seconds, and weighs in at only 640kb. You do need Windows Media Player to watch it, but if I was spreading it far and wide it could be converted to MPEG. The quality is kind of low so the file size doesn’t get out of control. (I put together a hi-res version, and it was 6MB.) And the music’s a little cheesy, but it makes the whole thing more fun, so who cares?
