Free photo and video editing programs

Topic / Technology

They’re actually not even programs in the traditional sense. Picnik.com and Jumpcut.com are both apps that work inside your browser in very 2.0 fashion, so there’s nothing to download, nothing to install and nothing to set up on your computer. Since most youth ministries function on pretty tight budgets, these FREE sites offer the perfect solution for editing pictures and video. Picnik takes your photos and offers real-time red-eye removal, resizing, rotating, touch-ups, and special effects while Jumpcut lets you open up your video clips in a web-based editor where you can rearrange clips and photos, add titles, effects and lots more. Both sites integrate with many popular networking sites like Flickr and Facebook, so importing media to edit and then sharing it again is pretty drop-dead easy. And I’ve gotta say, each site’s interface is pretty slick. It’s worth registering at Picnik.com just to watch the menus and navigation slide gracefully around the screen.

    Great links. I knew about picnik for a while, but never heard of jumpcut before. Reminds me of the new iMovie. These are great resources for ministries with little $$$ and don’t want to spend it on expensive software to kids to learn. It’s also perfect for doing video contests, or asking kids to make their own highlight music video themselves, able to share the footage, and ultimate share the movie. totally awesome, i’m excited. :P
