You can narrate the pictures in any order you want and ifyou do not like the narration for a picture, you can delete the narration and record it again.(see Fig 3.) Deleting the narration does not delete any of the other enhancements made toyour story so far! (You can also type notes for each picture to aid your memory as younarrate!)By setting the motion manually, you can select the general areas of a picture that willappear at the beginning and end of the pictures video clip. In the Customize Motionwindow, you can also do one or more of the following: - Specify the number of secondsthat a picture without narration is displayed when your story is played. (The settings youspecify in this dialog box only apply to the selected picture.) - Specify whether a picturestarts playing with a transition, and select the transition. - Specify the number of secondsthat a transition is displayed when your story is played. (The settings you specify in thisdialog box only apply to the selected picture.)Please watch lesson 2:- http://goo.gl/fNN65Content :-Adding Background Music To Your Story You can add background music that plays duringyour story. A different piece of music can play for each picture or for a group of pictures.You can add as many pieces of music to a story as there are pictures in the story. (Thoughthis will increase the overall time it takes to save the finished story and the actual size ofthe file too.) There are two types of music you can add as a background to your story.WMA, MP3 and WAV You can use music from your computer such as WMA, MP3 andWAV files. Photo Story will then make your story as long as the music you are adding. So a3:30 minute MP3 track will mean a 3:30 minute Photo Story... Please note though that ifyou are trying to use a DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected track, this will NOTwork with Photo Story 3.
