    Ok, ever since I’ve had a Mac I kept telling myself “Ok, I want to dig into iMovie and see what it can do.” Well I usually last about five minutes and then quit and so something else.

    Well I’m sick of that.

    I want to do something really basic and I’m sure it’s totally easy to do, but I don’t know where to start.

    Essentially I have a dozen or so images that I created in Photoshop, I want to have them show up (one by one) and fade out with the next one taking its place. I also want to have an .mp3 play in the background as this happens. I’d also like to export it as a .flv.

    Is there a tutorial somewhere out there that will walk me through this (visually)? Because I tried it yesterday and just sat there with a blank look on my face.

    Thanks in advance!

    For just stills you might as well use iPhoto. It would be easier.

    I've no problem with that as I'm a lot more familiar with iPhoto than iMovie. But could I still incorporate the music in the background or would I need iMovie for that?

    You can incorporate music in an iPhoto slideshow, but you will be limited to a single track. If you want to get fancy, you can edit the generated video's sound track in Garageband.
