Making Your Photo Montage

Step

Pick the music for your montage. Three or four minutes, about the length of one song, is a good length that will help ensure viewers don't get bored and that you don't run out of photos.

Step

Divide the number of seconds in the song by four. This is a good approximation for the number of photos you will need.

Step

Locate the photos you wish to use and decide what order you would like them to go in.

Step

Open Windows Live Movie Maker (or another program of your choice) and start a new project.

Step

Import your photos, dragging and dropping them into the storyboard.

Step

Click the AutoMovie button, which will automatically add a title and transitions to your montage. It will also prompt you to upload the music you wish to use.

Step

Tweak the montage if you wish using the other menu functions or save the completed montage.
