If you did your vacation slideshows this way, everyone would want to watch.

Pummelvision squishes your entire life into mere minutes. Let it access your photos on Flickr, Facebook or Tumblr, then hook it up to your Vimeo or YouTube account. In a matter of hours, you'll have a super fast, rather unique slideshow set to music (brought to you by Jake Lodwick, creator of Vimeo, amongst other things).

Here's a nifty one from Vimeo co-creator Justin Ouellette (mine can be found at the Vimeo link in my profile).

Looks cool, but am I really ready to see my life flash before my eyes?

"DO NOT submit another job in another browser -- it will probably break something."

I like their tone.

You give access to your social network and by extension a huge swathe of all of your contacts' non-public information in order to make yourself look like Benny Hill?

Countdown to Vimeo's new Credit "Identity Checking Agency" in Five.. Four...

This will be massively popular and I will continue to feel like Will Ferrell at the end of Zoolander screaming "Doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!".

I'm making one of the blog I keep for my daughter. I hope it's as cool as I imagine it.

Does life not pass by fast enough?

I'm working on the opposite of this service: LongNowVision. It'll take all your photos and turn them into a video that will take three hundred years to watch.

Maybe if you use Facebook, but the flickr option only asks for the e-mail address of your account. It doesn't even seem to ask flickr for permissions—and why would it, when it just grabs your public photos anyways?

The real problem is it's slow. AGONIZINGLY slow. I submitted my request before I went to bed. Eight hours later, it's apparently still churning.

No, I don't think so.

I just submitted 7,800 photos on Flickr to get Pummelled. Let's see what this comes back with.

It is. I submitted +/- 6000 photos on Flickr, and it took about 12 hours to get the email from Vimeo notifying me that it was done.

"FYI: #pummelvision has a limit of 2500 photos per video. This is not explained anywhere on the site."

(I did my Pummelvision thing a few days ago -- and only later remembered that I had taken some very gross and bright closeup macro shots of my shingles sores during my last vacation, so don't watch it.)

I'm not really a taker-of-photos; my Flickr consists entirely of art I've made. This should be interesting.

If you're having trouble getting your flickr account recognized, it turns out that when they ask for your "Flickr email address" what they mean is what flickr calls your "contact email". This may be different than the Yahoo! email you use to log in. Find it under "Your Account / Email & Notifications".

FWIW, here's mine.

ColdChef, amazing, I love how personal and sweet this is - the extended sequence with the tongues out was fabulous.

Heh. I made a picture book for my wife last Christmas of people sticking their tongues out at her. There are quite a few MeFites in there.
