You can do some cool things with movie maker.
say for instance you had a pile of photos from a motorcycle trip.you can scan the photos, or better yet if they are on digital camera put the photos in to a folder and go hunting for your favourite song as an mp3 or rip it from a cd as an mp3 , there is plenty of freeware mp3 cd rippers around, i use this
next go in to movie maker and import the song and import the picture.
if you have never done this before then you can simply press the make an auto movie button , follow the prompts and presto, at the end of it you will have young song and depending on how many photos you have it will add them all *ATTEMPT* to set them to music.
if you do an auto movie, if you go nuts with pictures and say have 100 pictures, it will not add all the photos.
you can do this manually, but this is another lesson...
once you have this done you can save the file to your pc in a number of different formats.you can save it for 56k modem download, or save it with maximum quality avi.
if you save it as maximum qulaity avi you can easily convert it to dvd format and burn it to dvd and save your master peace for generations to come and watch.
