This program can be used to make Windows Media Player slideshows, videos and sound! This program is a cost effective option for small businesses looking to impress future clients or is a program that can share heart-felt memories with friends and family. This tutorial provides a step-by-step guide on how to use Windows Movie Maker to make a picture slideshow. 3

5 Lesson 1 Getting Started

6 Getting Started Finding this icon is the key to start producing slideshows! 6

7 Getting Started How to find Windows Movie Maker! There are two different locations where Windows Movie Maker might be found. Step 1. Click on Start Step 2. Select All Programs Step 3. Then click on Windows Movie Maker 7

8 Finding the Program The second way to locate Windows Movie Maker, if you couldn t find it with the previous way: Step 1. Click on Start, then All Programs 8

9 Finding the Program Step 2. Select Accessories and then from the drop down menu click on Windows Movie Maker 9

10 Getting Started This is the main window in which you will create your slideshow. It is a good idea to become familiar with the make-up of this window. 10

11 Getting Started 1 1 This is where you import pictures and sound. 11

12 Getting Started 2 2 This is where you can choose View video effects, View video transitions or Make titles and credits. (Explained further in Lesson 3) 12

13 Getting Started 3 3 This is where you choose how you will save your slideshow once it is finished. 13

14 Getting Started 4 4 This is the Collection area. It displays the pictures and sound that are imported. 14

15 Getting Started 5 5 This is the preview area where you can view how your slideshow will look. 15

16 Getting Started 6 6 At the bottom of the screen is the Storyboard. It shows the order of your pictures and transitions. This area can also be switched to Timeline view where you can import music. 16

17 Getting Started 7 7 This is where you can find further tips that will help you to use features of Windows Movie Maker. 17

18 Suggestions for practice 1. Find Windows Movie Maker and open it. 2. Review the make-up of the main window to familiarize yourself with it. 3. Check out some of the options under Movie Tasks. 4. Switch from the Timeline view to the Storyboard view, and then back again. 18

19 Lesson 2 Starting the Storyboard

20 Editing the Slideshow Editing Notes: Pictures can NOT be resized in this program. By hovering over an image with the mouse cursor, a small box appears showing the dimensions of that image as well as the size of the file. 20

21 Editing the Slideshow Pictures in a slideshow must have the dimensions of 950 x 713 or more for viewing as full screen images in the show. For example the picture of the sunset above will not show full screen it s only 800 x 600. Check the picture size before using the images. There is a set of pre-sized pictures included to use with this slideshow workshop if need be. 21

22 Starting the Storyboard Before you start the Storyboard it s good to have a general plan! It is good to know which pictures and sound you want to use ahead of time. It is helpful to copy all of these files to one folder or have a list of the file names and locations. Knowing where your files are ahead of time allows you to import them into Windows Movie Maker more easily! If you have a specific goal in mind for your picture slideshow it is sometimes helpful to have more pictures than you may need. 22

23 Editing the Slideshow Before starting the Storyboard, click Tools on the menu bar. Then, in the drop down menu, click on Options to change the default Picture duration and Transition duration. 23

24 Editing the Slideshow Click the Advanced tab. This is where you can change the duration of the pictures and transitions. All pictures have to be the same duration and all transitions have to be the same duration. If you want to change the default durations you have to do so before adding pictures or transitions to the Storyboard. If the duration is changed after pictures are added to the Storyboard, the new duration will only be effective for new pictures added to the Storyboard. (Changing durations to pictures on the timeline will be discussed in Lesson 3) 24

25 Editing the Slideshow 3 Click OK 25

26 Starting the Storyboard Once you know what pictures and sound are going in your slideshow it s time to add everything to the Collection window. How to Import Pictures 1 Under Capture Video on the left side of the screen, click Import pictures. 26

27 Starting the Storyboard When the Import File window appears, click the drop down menu to find a folder where your pictures are located. Select which pictures you wish to import; you can select more than one picture at a time by holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking on each photo. If you want to import all the pictures in the folder, click on the first picture in the folder, then hold down the Shift key on your keyboard while, at the same time, single clicking on the last picture. 27

28 Starting the Storyboard 4 Click Import to add the photos to the Collection window. 4 28

29 Starting the Storyboard This is a view of the Collection window after the images have been imported. 29

30 Starting the Storyboard How to Import Sound 1 Under Capture Video, click Import audio or music 30

31 Starting the Storyboard Click the drop down menu to find a folder where your music is located. Select which sound files you wish to import; you can select more than one file at a time by holding down the ctrl key on your keyboard, while clicking on each music file. 31

32 Starting the Storyboard 4 Click Import to add the music to the Collection window. 4 32

33 Starting the Storyboard 2 1 When your photos and sound are added to the collection window, it will look similar to this. 1 2 Photos will appear in the Collection window as a thumbnail of the original photo. All sound files will appear as a music note. **Note: Photos may be in random order. 33

34 Starting the Storyboard Remember it is not necessary to add all the files in your collection to the storyboard. 1 1 To add photos to the Storyboard simply select the image you want to add then drag and drop (select a photo, while holding down the left mouse key) it onto the Storyboard. 34

35 Starting the Storyboard 2 2 When you select a photo in the Collection window a larger view will appear in the preview screen. Photos you drag and drop into the Storyboard can be rearranged. Simply select a photo that is in the Storyboard and drag and drop the photo to move it to another position. 35

36 Starting the Storyboard 1 2 Now that you have your Storyboard started it is very important to save. 1 2 First, select File Click Save Project As 36

37 Starting the Timeline The default folder that your project will save in is My Videos. Click the down arrow to select a different location. In the File name box, type in a name as it relates to your slideshow. 4 37

38 Starting the Timeline 5 5 Saved project files will always have an icon like this. **The project file saved is a file which we can still edit at any time. *It is important to continue to save when you make several changes or save every minutes. 38

39 Starting the Timeline Press Save. 7 39

40 Suggestions for practice 1. Make a list or folder of the pictures and sound you plan to use for your slideshow. 2. Import your pictures and sound to the collection area. (Hint: This will take at least two steps; one to import pictures and one to import sound). 3. Click a photo in the collection area and see that it appears in the preview area. 4. Drag and Drop your photos and sound onto the storyboard. 5. Rearrange some of the photos on the storyboard. 6. Preview how your video looks so far. 7. Save your project! 40

41 Lesson 3 Editing the Slideshow

42 Making Titles or Credits Editing involves adding titles, video effects, video transitions, sound adjustments, and timing. 1 1 Under Edit Movies on the left side of the screen, click Make titles or credits. 42

43 Making Titles or Credits 2 You will then be given several options as to where you want to add your title. If you want to add more than one title into your slideshow you will have to follow these steps for each title you want to add. Click on title at the beginning 43

44 Editing the Slideshow 3 4 The text you enter here will also appear in the preview window. 3 4 Now enter the text you wish to have for your title. There are two boxes at the top of the screen. The top one is for the title. The bottom box allows for a subtitle. To change the title font and color, click Change the text and font color. 44

45 Editing the Slideshow As you make changes to the text, a preview will be displayed in the preview window Click the drop down arrow to choose a font type. You can also choose to make your font Bold, Italicized, or Underlined. To change the color of the text click the icon with the A under color, to change the background color double click the box of color beside the A. 45

46 Editing the Slideshow 8 9 As you make changes to the text, a preview will be displayed in the preview window. 8 9 You can change the size of the text here. Click on the large A to increase the size of the font. Click on the smaller A to decrease the size of the font. To change position or alignment of the title select one of three buttons: Left Aligned, Centered or Right Aligned. 46

47 Editing the Slideshow 10 To change the title animation, click Change the title animation. 10 As you make changes to the text, a preview will be displayed in the preview window. 47

48 Editing the Slideshow If your title only has one title (no subtitle) select from the list shown under Titles, One Line. If your title includes a subtitle use the scroll bar to the right of the list to continue down until you see Titles, Two Lines and choose a title animation from the list. 48

49 Editing the Slideshow Any time you want to go back to one of the previous option pages, you do so by selecting one of the two options. Edit the title text or Change the text font and color Once you are finished, click Done, add title to movie. 49

50 Editing the Slideshow Video effects appear in the Collection area, and can be previewed by selecting the one you would like to see 1 1 Under Edit Movie on the left side of the screen, click View video effects to start. 50

51 Editing the Slideshow Scroll through the Video Effects list and find an effect you would like to incorporate into your slideshow. Once you know which video effect you would like, drag and drop it - (single click on an effect, while holding down your mouse key) - into the corner of the photo on which you would like to add the effect. 51

52 Editing the Slideshow Each photo on the Storyboard that has a video effect will have a blue star in the bottom left corner. Photos on the Storyboard with two or more video effects will have two overlapping stars. If the photo does not have a video effect the star will remain grey. You can choose not to use video effects, only put them on some photos, or put them on all photos. 52

53 Editing the Slideshow To delete any effects that you no longer want simply click once on the star in the corner of the photo and press the delete key on the keyboard. **Note: This will delete ALL effects that were put on the picture. 53

54 Editing the Slideshow Video transitions which appear in the Collection area, can also be previewed. 1 Click View video transitions to start. 54

55 Editing the Slideshow To add the transition to the Storyboard drag and drop the transition into the box between the two photos. Once there is a transition between two photos, a small image of the transition will appear in the box. If you are making the slide show for your business it is a good idea to keep the transitions relatively consistent. If you are doing the slideshow for fun, or for family members, using a variety of transitions is fine. 55

56 Editing the Slideshow When you re finished adding the Transitions to the slideshow, you will want to go back to your Collections window. Step 1. At the top of the screen click on Video Transitions, when the drop down menu shows, click on Collections 56

57 Editing the Slideshow 1 Adding the music to the slideshow. 1 First switch back to Timeline view, by single clicking on Show Timeline. 57

58 Editing the Slideshow 2 2 Drag and drop the music file into the Audio/Music line in the Timeline. 58

59 Editing the Slideshow 3 3 Move the mouse inside the music file on the timeline until you see a hand icon. While holding down the left mouse button drag the file to the left, in order to put the music at the beginning of the slideshow 59

60 Editing the Slideshow 1 If you want to change the duration of pictures on the timeline to fit to the length of the song, you have to change each picture individually. You may want to change all pictures, or only some. 1 First you need to select the picture you want to change the duration for. Do this by clicking once on the picture. Once selected you will notice a thick black outline around the picture to show that it is selected. 60

61 Editing the Slideshow If you hover the mouse pointer on the end of the picture, a red double arrow will appear. When you see this, click and hold the mouse button. Drag the arrow to the left to shorten the duration or drag it to the right to lengthen the duration. Once you begin to adjust the length, the selection will be shaded with blue. A small box will also appear, as you drag the selection, where you can see the duration length. 61

62 Editing the Slideshow If the music is too long for your slideshow you can edit where it will end. 1 1 If the blue line does not appear at the end of all your pictures, select the top blue square by holding down the left mouse button and dragging it to the end of the slides. 62

63 Editing the Slideshow Move the mouse cursor to the very end of the Audio/Music line where the music ends. When you move the cursor to the end of the music it will change to a red double arrow. Once you see the double arrow click and hold the left mouse button and drag the selection to the left until the blue line matches with the end of the last picture. Play through your slideshow to make sure you did not trim too much audio. If you did trim to much audio you can click and drag the audio back to the right. 63

64 Editing the Slideshow 4 4 When you cut down on the music file the song will stop abruptly. In order to have it fade out when the song comes to an end, right click inside the music file on the Timeline. In the drop down menu click on Fade Out. 64

65 Editing the Slideshow 1 1 To change the Volume level for your slideshow: Click Tools on your menu bar at the top of the screen and from the drop down menu select Audio Levels 65

66 Editing the Slideshow If you want the music volume lower, drag the scale to the left, if you want it louder drag the scale to the right. 66

67 Editing the Slideshow Now that more changes were made to the slideshow, it is a good idea to save your project again. Step 1. Click on File in the menu bar Step 2. Click Save Project 67

68 Suggestions for practice 1. Check the size of your pictures to see if they are at least the optimum size. 2. Add a title to you slideshow. Make sure to edit the font and change the animation. 3. Add a video effect to at least one picture. 4. Add video transitions between all pictures. 5. Change the default sound level. 6. Change the duration of the pictures and/or the transitions. 7. Save your project. 8. Edit the length of your song selection. 9. Preview your project, and then make any necessary changes. 68
