An iMovie Photo Tribute to Dad — in Loving Memory

An iMovie Photo Tribute to Dad — in Loving Memory | How to Use an iPhone Well | Scoop.it

Watch the video  at: http://groovinonapps.com/an-imovie-photo-tribute-to-dad-in-loving-memory/#sthash.VWtJimYG.dpufMy

Groovin' On Apps's insight:

When Dad passed away a few weeks ago, he had thousands of lovingly taken photographs of each of his seven children growing up, and a celebrity son who had previously recorded a heartfelt rendition of "Father's Love."

 

I used iMovie to quickly and painlessly bring a handful of images and the soundtrack together in a video that honored Dad's love for both his kids and photography. IMovie was a good app choice --  none of the tears I shed in the making of this video sprung from technical issues or difficulties.
