If you’re in public relations and you dig making slideshows and simple little movies, you might want to check out One True Media, a very cool free website that help you build a slideshow by uploading a series of photos, or provides you with the ability to upload mp4 video files. What’s cool about One True Media is that the tool also gives you the option of choosing titles, captions, background music (with a pretty big library) and styles. The best way to explain how One True Media works is to simply show you the sample I created for the White Plains City School District, one of my clients. It took me, maybe, 20 minutes to upload the files and pull the little show together.
What’s also neat about this is that One True Media then provides you with a URL for the show and an embed code, so you can place it on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or a blog — fast and easy. Of course, like many “free” Web 2.0 sites, One True Media will offer you the chance to purchase their premium service, which is your call. But for me, the free service seems to work just fine.
