    Hey there, guys.

    I'm trying to turn a podcast I created in Garageband into a movie using iMovie so I can upload it to YouTube. Now, for the duration of this podcast, I simply want one picture to show on the screen. So, in other words, the cast goes for about 55 minutes, so for the entirity of these 55 minutes, I just want one picture to show. That's all. Just one picture for the duration of the cast. How can I achieve this seemingly simple task using iMovie? Your aid with this is very much appreciated.

    Doing this from the top of my head as I am at work and not on a Mac:

    Drag picture you want to use into timeline.
    Double-click on the picture and set duration to 55 minutes.
    Drag audio you want to use into timeline.
    Export or Share to YouTube.

    This should be enough to get you going. This really is a pretty simple thing to do. Good luck! You should have no trouble.

    You can only set a time for a still picture for 30 minutes, I think, so you'll have to do a copy and paste with your picture.
