I'm looking for suggestions, recommendations, information, etc. about creating a still pictures slide show that can be accessed on the Web. The only thing I've ever done related was a simple slide show with accompanying music using the standard Windows 7 media software, and I don't think there's a way to access that via Web.
The project is a "year in the life of a farmer's market." Most Saturday mornings this year I went to a local farm market and took pictures. I've got everything from tomato plants and spring peas in May to sweat-drenched shoppers/workers in August to Christmas wreaths carried by gloved hands n November. I've got 3000 images I'll have to cull down into the five to 10 minute range.
I'd like to put some music behind it, but I don't want to pay royalties for owned works. I understand there is public domain stuff around. Also, if possible, I'd like the ability to add my own voice-over.
This isn't being sold to anyone, and there's no commercial aspect involved. I'd just put it on the Web the same way I do with my photo site. My two hosting options, if they are options, are Smugmug where I have my photo galleries and Wordpress where I put my ravings and ranting into words.
If there's something free that can do this, I'd like to know. Failing that, I'm guessing there must be some sort of software that can be purchased -- economically, of course.
Thanks in advance!
