I’ve experimented with online video editors before this. I used jaycut before it went belly up and enjoyed the idea of instantly uploading the photos and videos I took on my phone into my google picasa account (like I said, this was a few years ago), and then manipulating them directly online. No downloading of software or media, no cords to fumble with. Needless to say, the technology wasn’t quite there, and neither was I as a video editor.

I just wanted to share some pros and cons I’ve found using the YouTube Editor. It is now my go-to editor for making quality photo slide shows or combined photo / video creations.

This is the video I made in July. It’s a book trailer for a course in Librarianship I took over the summer. It is made exclusively using video clips and music from YouTube’s Creative Commons library.
And this is the video I made today. The first one of the new school year.
