iMovie

Movie editing tool for Mac and iOS. Pictures can be put together to create a slideshow as well. Various effects available for transitions, music, captions, etc.

Evaluation: A handy software program that comes with a Mac computer which allows you to create professional videos or photo slideshows easily. As it offers a variety of functions, it may seem a little daunting at first for those who have never used video editing software. It may take some time to grasp all the functions and ‘how-to’, but it basically does not require any advanced IT knowledge. A good tutorial is all you need to get started!
