Share A Holiday Slideshow!

Did you know that Photobucket isn’t just a resource for finding stock images anymore? It’s true, Photobucket is also a super easy hub for making any and all things photo product related. You want gorgeous holiday cards? They got holiday cards. You want a slideshow? Photobucket has super easy to build slideshows. Remember how I shared some tips for how to get beautiful for holiday photos? I used some of the photos from that post and easily pulled together a super rad slideshow featuring some of my favorite photos from 2014. Turns out, even though our year was less than amazing, there were still some pretty good moments. It took me less than 5 minutes to upload the photos and toss them all together in a slideshow to help me remember those good moments, and then with their handy sharing tools, I shared that slideshow on Facebook in a snap! Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Such a fun feature, especially if you’re looking for a low-key alternative to traditional holiday cards or even if you just want to share some pics. Low-key is all kinds of appealing to me these days after all. Simply share your slideshow via your social media platform of choice (Facebook, Pinterest, etc,), or even through email if you choose. So easy!

I’ve got to admit, after the year we’ve had, I wasn’t planning on doing any sort of year-end recap at all. I figured if anyone deserved a pass on that sort of stuff, it was us. But honestly, the easy creation tools on Photobucket were too easy to pass up. Add to that the fact that there were some amazing discount codes for photo products, and I couldn’t say no. Slideshow done and shared on Facebook with all my family and friends, a few canvases ordered of my favorite pics, I even put together a calendar for next year too! Pretty rad, huh?

Do you do holiday cards every year or skip it? Every other year? A family newsletter via email? Have you ever done a slideshow in lieu of holiday cards and shared on social media instead? I’m really curious how everyone else is doing it when it comes to these sorts of things.

    I send out holiday cards every year. It’s my favorite time of year to get mail and it makes me happy to send them out. About 5 years ago when money was tight I created a digital card and emailed it out. While I know everyone saw it (plus everyone on social media) it didn’t feel the same to me so I haven’t done it again!
