Kizoa - Digital Story Telling

Kizoa is another website for creating Digital stories out of photos.  The main difference so far is that it also offers the ability to edit those photos as well with more features than I have seen from the other web-based applications.  You can add transitions, flash animations, text, effects, and frames to the pictures when adding them to the slide-show making them more appealing to the viewer.

You can sort your photos into albums and give photos tags helping you keep them organized.  You can share it with others and create private groups that people can join.  Kizoa is completely free. Uploading 100 photos was rather simple.  I was blocked by the firewall at my school, but doing it from home was easy.  The user interface was also very easy to use as well.  With the free account you get 1024 MB of storage, so if you plan on using high quality images, you probably want to pay for an account.

When finished you can burn the slide-show to a DVD, convert slide-show into video, and download and play the slide-show offline. Impressive software.  Feels like they took the best of some of the others and combined them into one.

  1. I am also a Kizoa user and this website is great. It's so simple to use and every time I sign in to my account it seems they've created something new and amazing for editing photos. I try to keep consistent with their blog that posts when Kizoa makes new additions. For example, you can add multiple songs to a slideshow now and sharing slideshows is easy. One of the newest features is the Facebook function which allows you to upload photos from Facebook straight to Kizoa- pretty convenient.

    Anyways, Check out the website. I would highly recommend for basic photo editing, easy to use effects and animations, and frames.
