Giving Your Movie a Theme Song
If you have not gathered, I am not a big one for narrations. I do like to have music play during these picture shows.
Selecting the Next button takes you to the Add Background Music screen. This screen enables you to add any MP3 or WMA file you have on your computer or to create your own music.
To add music that you have already on your computer, just press the Select Music button and search your hard drive for the song you want. In Figure 15, you can see that I have chosen a song by George Winston.
Figure 15 Photo Story enables you to add a sound track to your movie.
The song automatically loops and fades out when it reaches the end of your movie.
You can also have some fun with the Create Music button. This opens the Create Music window, where you can create your own royalty-free music (see Figure 16).
Figure 16 The Create Music window lets you create your own music.
The problem is, I am not very good at creating music. This seems like a cool tool, but it is pretty much wasted on me because I can only make music sound bad. You, on the other hand, may have different luck.
When you have whichever type of music you like selected, you can also choose how loud you want the music to sound in the background. The volume slider can be drawn back and forth. Press the Preview button to view the movie with your soundtrack at different levels.
