Want to jazz up your Christmas cards this year and be a little greener in the process?  Animoto has a cool product for you.

They’ve got three variations of dynamic, animated holiday video greetings that can be easily shared online via email or website. In minutes, Animoto lets anyone create personalized videos – just upload your favorite photos and video clips, add personalized text, pick a song to match the mood, and Animoto takes care of the rest.

It’s not only a paperless, Earth-friendly way to send your holiday well wishes out, it’s also budget friendly – 30-second videos are free, full-length videos cost just $3, and an annual subscription is only $30; high-resolution downloads are just $5 and DVDs cost $20.

The above video took me about 10 minutes or so to make, which included importing photos from a SmugMug gallery (a very cool feature that’s integrated within Animoto).

You can see the other holiday themed videos on this page at Animoto.

Adobe has released Photoshop Express in beta to the public. The above video that Scott Kelby placed on YouTube does a good job of explaining what it does and doesn’t do.  Additionally, here’s a brief description from Adobe:

During the public beta period, Adobe will solicit Photoshop Express user feedback on product features and functionality, which will continue to evolve over time. As the newest addition to the Photoshop family line, Photoshop Express has taken much of Adobes best image editing technology and made it simple and accessible to a new online audience. Photoshop Express allows users to store up to 2 gigabytes of images online for free, make edits to their photos, and share them online in creative ways, including downloading and uploading photos from popular social networking sites like Facebook.

Adobe Photoshop Express beta is available now for free via any Web browser at http://www.photoshop.com/express.
