    Very simple. I just want to be able to upload a photo to a song and upload it to youtube. i want people to listen to the song and have the album art cover.

    for mac.

    thank you.

    btw* i tried I movie and it didn't work because it sets a photo limit to under a 60 seconds. and i can't extend the duration of it.

    Up the irons
    Do it with iPhoto. Make a one picture slideshow and choose the music. Export it to mpeg4 and send to YouTube.

    What kind of music is it? :p

    if you are more comfortable with iMovie then you could also just put the same photo in a few times for 55 seconds at a time or something. pretty simple fix if you want to go that route.

    Having other issues...

    Hey, I figured out how to do this with imovie and iphoto and everything... however the picture I want in the video is way too big and I can't make it any smaller. I've tried resizing the picture in a different program, but it just blows it up even more in imovie... What do I do??

    Select the "Fit" option on the iMovie canvas to make the picture to fit in the screen ( if it is a landascape image it will fit just fine but if it is a portrait one, it will leave black margins on the side), in that way i rcommend the "Crop" option but your image will move from the begging crop point to the end of it.
    Images in iMovie is recomended to be used in landscape mode
