I love having the ability to present slide show videos of my photography. It is so beautiful being able to tie the photos together with music. iMovie does gets props for ease of use once you figure out how it works that is! LOL. I love how it is so much easier to use than other programs that I have attempted in the past.
Learning iMovie can be challenging. The layout is not "beginning user-friendly." I don't like the fact that the color correction for video clips isn't the easiest to use. In addition, I feel like they need to have more options when it comes overlapping pictures and a wider range of background choices.
Learn how to use it before attempting a slide show.
Watch different "how-to" videos
Make slideshow long enough to enjoy pictures
Don't make your video too long- you want people to want to watch it until the end
Always include some music
I have been able to quickly edit my video footage.
it is a benefit that iMovie connects easily with GarageBand, Itunes & iphoto.
