Easy Video Creation with Muvee Reveal – Review

Hi all, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Muvee Reveal 11, a program to make help you make videos. I was fortunate enough to be one of the bloggers chosen for this review and I have to tell you, it made making videos so easy!

This program has everything, I put together a few collages using Gimp (a free photoshop like program) and polished up a few old pictures. I played with Muvee a while and decided to add some old video footage of the dogs.

I can’t help myself sometimes and I just MUST grab the nearest camera and take videos of my dogs… you may say that I am easily entertained, but I do think that they are the cutest dogs in the whole wide world! Lol Just like a proud Mother, huh? I am in the habit of saying that I wish my eyes had a built in camera in them to capture those moments that come and go so quickly.

muvee reveal program pictureLuckily most of us have several means for taking those precious videos and pictures close at hand with technology today. The problem has been getting those great pictures and videos together to form an entertaining video to share with others. Lets face it, with YouTube out there, we’ve all seen some very put together videos and we wouldn’t be entertained by just any video anymore.

I am picky when it comes to putting anything together to post online, and I have, in the past spent days and hours to put together my videos for my blog. The program Muvee Reveal 11 has made my work so much easier for me, and I can say that it is honestly worth the money, because of the ease of use and professional results you get in no time at all.

Muvee has so many features in it that I couldn’t possibly tell you about all of them… I am sure that I haven’t done anything but touch the surface of this programs capabilities. I know that I have yet to play with the voice-over feature and I only cut one old video down on it.

movee reveal picture of some settingsThe features that I have used to make my little movie, that I can recall off the top of my head:

Captions for on your video clips or pictures

Inserting Text before certain pictures

Choosing the Theme

Choosing the Music (either choose from what comes with the program or your own music)

Turning down the Music

Enhancing  the sound on your video clip

Editing one of the 4 little videos in the mix

Sorting my pictures and videos

Playing with the font for Captions, Title etc

Added Graffiti (tons to choose from)

Choosing where to upload my video (I chose youtube of course)

And Here it is! Check out my new video:

All I can say about this program is, the more I played with it yesterday the more creative I found I could be in making my video look truly professional and attractive. And the more I play with this the more I discovered about the program. If you get lost playing with Muvee Reveal, they not only have tutorials online, but they have a forum where you can easily search to find answers to your questions and if you don’t find an answer, then just ask your own question in the forum or with their Live Chat too!

I am excited that I have Muvee Reveal, as I have more review projects coming up soon that could use a video. Click here to get your own copy of Muvee Reveal and start making those pictures and or videos stand out from the crowd.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Which shade will you choose?

_________________________________

For me, the shade I chose for my review is very close to my hair color but amped up! Although the color I chose is classified as a cool tone, my skin is actually warm. Part of why I chose this was that the color looks lighter and more vivid then the reddest color in warm category, so, with encouragement from my husband, I chose a color that I think is perfect for me, perhaps could be classified as neutral hair color since I think it would go great with warm skin tones as well as cool (yes the old Color Me Beautiful and PHD in Color has kicked in here). My color shall be: Vesuvius Red – 7NCR (my other choice would be: Genova Red, but on my screen it looks to brown for my taste. lol)

Watch for the review as soon as my hair grows out enough for a new color, so about a month or so. 🙂

So will you join me and find a new color for summer? Let me know!

Plus Size Clothing – Smitten With Lace & Savings

Smitten with Style – One Top Five Looks

Hi friends, since I hurt my leg a while ago I’ve put on some weight and once again I thought of Kiyonna Clothing. Actually the clothing is made for size 10 and up so I still could have worn the clothing while thinner. But, as I am sure some of you know, it is so very hard to find clothing that is both pretty and flattering in larger sizes, well Kiyonna’s Plus Size Clothing perfectly fills those requirements.

Size Doesn't Define your Beauty

 

And now that the Seasons are changing and especially with Weddings coming up it’s time to freshen up the wardrobe again, so I thought I would post a little something from Kiyonna for you, in case you are looking for something flattering and new for your wardrobe.

 

Oh and yes, this “Smitten Lace Top” (below), is so lovely in any of the colors they offer…I just love lace, don’t you?

 

Smitten Style

With ruching all along the torso, this top will flatter and hug all of your fabulous curves. It is lined except for the high sheer neckline, which has a skin tone mesh behind the lace to hide your bra and give you a little more coverage. The sheer lace sleeves fall at about your elbow and are sexy with added room for comfort as well.

Five ways to style the Smitten Lace Top:

1. Pair the Smitten Lace Top with a floral pencil skirt for the perfect casual office look.

2. Go bold with the Smitten Lace Top paired with white ankle pants and nude heels for an everyday look that can go everywhere.

3. A sleek, solid pencil skirt with the Smitten Lace Top goes from office to evening with ease.

4. The Smitten Lace Top looks fantastic worn completely casual with jeans, heels and a great statement necklace – perfect for movie night.
