Create home movies in iMovie and slideshows in Photos. Share with friends and family! It’s surprisingly easy to add transitions, music, and text for professional results.

Class Description

Feeling a bit more nostalgic during the holidays? Looking forward to some much-needed connection with family and friends?

You have hundreds of videos and thousands of photos that you’ve taken over the years. Reawaken memories by turning them into family movies and animated slideshows. They make cherished gifts!

Join Jamie as he shows you how unexpectedly easy it is to create magic with your videos in iMovie and slideshows in Photos.

He’ll cover everything you need to know to use the built-in iMovie trailers feature to make quick and exciting Hollywood-style trailers and movies:
Choose a template from almost any genre
Type in your movie title and credits.
Drag-and-drop photos and videos to the storyboard
Choose music and effects.

That’s it! An instant blockbuster!

Of course, if you want to share your movie to your adoring public, your movie needs distribution! Jamie will demonstrate how to publish and share your digital gifts with family and friends.

Send your movie via Messages for an instant reaction, post it on popular social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, and publish directly to YouTube in stunning 4K resolution.

Then the course jumps over into Photos. You’ll build a terrific slideshow based on your favorite pictures. Again, Jamie will show you how to do everything, including seamlessly sharing it with your family and friends.

The holidays are a time for family togetherness. Creating family movies and slideshows are exactly what your loved ones (and your loyal fan base!) need right now.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is a wrap!
