7 Creative Ways to use The Motion Books

Videos are incredibly important these days which is why we at The Motion Books have invested time and effort into creating quality products to showcase your most memorable events. Simply open your video book and watch your video come to life! Here are 7 creative ways to use The Motion Books video book:

1. Showcase a slideshow of images 

Couples often have lots of photos from their wedding but no way to display them. In creating a slideshow of your favorite images, they can showcase their pictures in a video book for all their family and friends to see. If you need help creating a slideshow, we suggest using Animoto or Adobe Spark to easily make a video with your favorite photos.
