Use Instagram to Share Your Travel Photos

Many social media also allow users to organize the photos into photo albums on their accounts. This prevents you from having to waste money on buying new photo albums to store your photos.
Share a Video of Your Trip
You can take a video camera or your smartphone to film the scene at the attraction place. In the video, you can interview the locals or feature yourself introducing about the venue. After that, you can upload your video to share it on YouTube.
Compile a Travel Slideshow

When the photos are opened, you can drag them around to rearrange them. You can set how long an image will display by going to properties to set the duration. You can add plain or animated titles in the title tab. If you want to put callouts on the photo, you can go to the calls out tab and drag a callout style onto the clip.
