    Hey folks, really simple task but cant work out how to do it on iMovie!

    I have an MP3 of about 7 minutes long that I want to upload to YouTube, with 1 picture to be displayed throughout the whole 7 minute duration...

    What is the best way of doing this on iMovie?

    Cheers

    James

    at present, I can only seem to make the picture last a maximum of 10 seconds...

    So I dragged the picture into iMove from finder, 70 times to enable the MP3 to play for 7 minutes...is this the best way to achieve this?

    Which iMovie are you using? iMovie 6, drag the photo to the timeline, then double click it. In the info panel, set the time to 7:00:00.

    In iMovie9 insert the photo into your Project, hover the mouse over the beginning of the clip, and click on the gearwheel. Select Clip Adjustment, and enter the time in the same format.
