DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that most popular video distribution channels are websites and social according to Lindsay Kolowich's marketing statistics on Hubspot website? In this digital age, the number of photos and videos being uploaded to social networking sites is increasing rapidly. This is because of the help of smartphones that make almost everything convenient. According to Kit Smith in his article on Marketing: 116 Amazing Social Media Statistics and Facts, 78% of people watch online videos every week. Because of the large number of video viewers online, several online marketers are using this strategy to get people engaged and communicate their brand. 

In addition, some people are also making use of videos to tell a story, document an event, entertain, create memories, and more. Video editing software applications and other tools for video editing are also readily available for smartphone and computer users. Some of these tools are Adobe Premiere and Windows Movie Maker, which are among the most popular video editing software. These tools not only help users edit and fix videos but these are also helpful for creating a video out of photos. By simply placing these photos into your timeline and adding transitions, effects, adjusting duration, and more, one can create an exceptional video that contains photos.
