    I am wanting to know how to make video which i can upload on to Youtube on the Apple iMac. I used to use Windows Movie Maker on my laptop with Vista, but now I can't figure out how to do it on the iMac.

    I want to add a picture then a music song running over that.

    Thanks

    To make it easier, this is what I want to accomplish:

    In Windows Movie Maker, you could add a picture, then you could add a song over that. Then the picture will show for the same duration of the song. Then you can publish this movie and it would save to your computer.

    Well this is what I would like to do now, but I am struggling how to do it, so if anyone could help me, I would be so grateful :)
