Animoto technical difficulties...grrrrr

So, I read a post about Animoto on the Librarian in Black's blog (with red hair and wearing black does she look like Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer or what?) about Animoto which turns your uploaded photos into a short video clip with musical accompaniment. Very cool looking. So...I thought I'd do some photos of my little mom, as a tribute because I miss her every day...

But! Animoto would not see to upload any of the dozens of pictures I have scanned into my computer. Even looking in the "scanned photos" folder. Grrr!

So, I really wanted to do this post, and my mind says, hmmm maybe it really wanted to work from Flickr instead. So I put them on Flickr. All Animoto sees to load from Flickr is the little alien I originally uploaded to test Flickr as part of my 23 Things on a Stick. Argh, argh, triple argh!

I wrote to them in their little Feedback box, but haven't heard back. I tried my best Google enabled troubleshooting searches to see if anyone else on the planet had trouble but noooo noooo, it easy as pie for everyone else. Maybe my little mom's ghost doesn't want to be posted here? *sigh*

I'm trying to find your e-mail in feedback to get back to you, but also feel free to e-mail me at if you don't hear back from me. We'll try some troubleshooting and get you well on your way to using Animoto!
