Find out how easy it is to make videos in Microsoft Photos
When Alex Thomopoulos says “Get down, rise up,” she’s asking you what you’re passionate about and what makes you get up every day to pursue it. It’s a motto she reinforces as a Burton Girls Ambassador. The program encourages strength, independence and creativity for young women.
Food is one thing that makes Thomopoulos get down and rise up.
As a chef and entrepreneur, Thomopoulos can tell you how to make a gluten-free Meyer lemon cake, but she admits making videos that will take her business to the next level is not her forte.
“I know how to cook, but I don’t understand technology at all,” she says.
Fortunately, she gets help from Ashlie Little, a Microsoft product specialist, who shows Thomopoulos how to use the Microsoft Photos app in Windows 10 to edit existing video clips and still images into a movie that’s ready to share on social media.
