How to Upload Photos to YouTube

As we all know, YouTube is great for sharing videos. But it can also be used to upload photos and create slideshows in a few seconds. The process is incredibly easy:

  • Log into your YouTube account and click Upload. Then navigate over to Photo slideshow and click Create. In the pop up windows, select the photos you want to upload. You can either get photo from the photo albums or your computer.
  • Then click Next and choose an audio track from the library under Audio or tick No audio to make your slideshow play without music. You can also set slide duration and add slideshow effect or transition if you like.
  • When you’re done, click Upload and enter the description or tag information. You can always set your slideshow to private if you don't want to share the slideshow with the entire world.

But from above we know that YouTube only provides some basic functions for slideshow making. And it doesn’t allow you to upload audio files from your computer. So what if you want to make more personalized slideshow for YouTube? Here I highly recommend an easy-to-use slideshow maker that uploads your project directly to YouTube, that’s Fantashow! Just follow the steps below to see how you can upload photos to YouTube by creating a fantastic slideshow.

2 Add more personal touch to your video

After that, you’ll go to the Personalize tab to add more elements to your video. Here you can browse and drag and drop your photos to the story board. Then double click the target file to crop, add effect or set duration.

Unlike YouTube, you can add your own music from computer. To do this, just go to Audio tab and drag and drop the audio file to the bottom of the timeline.

Besides that, you can also change your video style or apply more styles to make your home movie more eye-catching.
