Making a video from photos neither requires many skills nor third-party programs. Windows 11 has the feature built-in, in the Photos app, the default photo-viewing program on Windows. In this guide, we show you how we can make videos from photos on Windows 11.
Earlier, to make a video from photos, we need to install a third-party app on our PC and we have to learn the functions and features of that app. It takes time and not every PC can run those heavy and bulky apps which consume a lot of CPU. The time it takes to save the video made using that program is also a long wait. Now, on Windows 11 with the Photos app, we can ditch all those third-party apps and the associated cons to make a video from photos easily in a short time. Let’s see how it can be done.
How to Make Video From Photos in Windows 11
First, make sure you put all the photos that you want to make into a video in a single folder to make your work easier. Then open the Photos app on your PC.
- Click on the New video
- Select Automatic video
- Then select the photos you want to add
- Click on Create at the top of the window
- Enter a name for your video
- Click OK to save it.
Let’s get into the details of the process.
Once you have opened the Photos app on your PC, click on New video at the top-right of the window and select Automatic video from the three options you see. The Automatic video option must be selected if you want to create a video from photos easily.
After selecting Automatic video, you will see the pictures that are stored on your PC. Select the pictures you want to add to your video by checking the button at the top-right of each picture. Once you are done with the selection of pictures, click on Create at the top-right of the Photos app window.
Then, you will see a small dialog box to Name your video. Enter the name or text you want to see in the video in the textbox and click OK or you can skip it. Your video will contain the text whatever is written in the textbox.
The automatic video with the photos and text you have selected will be created and a preview of it will be played for you in the Photos app window.
If you are not satisfied with the music, style, and colors of your video, click on Remix it for me, until you get what you want. If you are making a video for someone and you want to highlight that person in the video, you can click on Choose a star and select a face. If you are okay with everything in the video, click on Finish video at the bottom of the preview window.
Select the video quality by clicking on the drop-down box under Video Quality and then click on Export.
Now, select the folder on your PC to save the video and enter a name for it. Once you are done with that, click on Export to save the video file on the location you selected.
This is how you can make an automatic video from pictures on Windows 11 using the Photos app.
