USING WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER TO CREATE THE MOMENT BEHIND THE PHOTO STORYPART 2

WHAT'S YOUR STORY?

Play through your edit a few times, thinking about how you could improve the story by trimming it down, or changing the order. If there are any sections where your attention drifts, think about trimming these sections.

Look at the photo as you listen to the story.

Play it to other people to see how they respond to it.

Edit the story down, until it is under 1 minute 20 seconds.

Before you bring the photo into Windows Movie Maker, you need to crop the photo so that it fills the frame, and make it the correct proportions for Windows Movie Maker.

To do this, you may have photo editing software that you already use, or you can visit a site like www.picnik.com, which has simple tools for cropping your photo.

28. If you need to retrieve a comment that youve deleted, go back to the original clip in the Collections Panel, and drag it into the Timeline again. Its best to drag it to the end of the Timeline.

Then find the section youre looking for, make a Split at the start and the end of the section using the Split button then drag the selection to where youd like it to go.

29. In Picnik, click on Get Started Now and then click Upload a Photo. Browse to find your photo on the computer, and click Open. The photo will open in the Edit tab.

Now its time to Add your photo.

30. Click on the Crop button.

Select No constraints in the drop-down menu at the top.

Next to Actual size, type in 1920 x 1080 and tick the Scale photo box.

It is important to crop the photo in this exact ratio, or Windows Movie Maker will distort the photo.

If it wont let you type in 1920 x 1080, you need to load a higher quality photo.

A grid will appear over the photo to show where you are cropping it. Drag the edges of the box so that only the photo is showing inside.

If your photo is square, or is in portrait orientation, it is ok to leave some empty space around it, but crop it as close as you can, without losing too much of the image.

When you are happy with the crop, click OK.

31. You may want to use the other tools to adjust the exposure of your photos.

When you are done, click on the Save & Share tab.
