    Ok, stupid question of the day, apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere on the boards, I could'nt find it...

    I would like to create a slide show video in iMovie to upload to youtube using a piece of music (non copyright natch, *cough*). As I only have a few images to use I'd like to be able to just simply repeat the images until the track stops.

    Being not terribly Mac/technically minded I'm having problems. The silde show should work around the complete piece of music but I can't seem to do it.

    Also I'm importing the pictures from my iPhoto, is there any way of resizing them in my movie as they all appear full screen and I think it would look better if they they were cropped a little.

    Does that make any sense, do I get a prize for being the biggest div of the day? Your thoughts/expertise would be very welcome.

    When it comes to iMovie help, I prefer iMovie '06. For me, it is much more user friendly and easier to use. I've been using it ever since it came out and I have been able to create slideshows easily in it. Perhaps if you email me, I can help you even more with this:
