If you have ever seen the awesome documentaries of Ken Burns with the subtle movement of the stills, well now you can re-create those with the new Pan & Zoom tool in Elements 10. So here I've got a still that I have applied the Pan & Zoom tool to, and let's press play. Instead of just sitting there, it moves nice and slow. I can add some narration underneath and make it a lot more interesting than just looking at a photo and hearing my voice. So how do we do that? Well, let's go into our Photos and let's pick a photo.
We want to use the Jackie_jump_black_dress. I am going to bring it down. And I might want it to play for a little longer than a few seconds, so I will just click, hold, and drag it, as we learned in other lessons. And here it is. So now, I can click the Pan & Zoom tool right here and it opens it up, and it's basically telling me on Frame1, which is here, I am going to have this and on Frame2, I am going to have this. So on Frame1, what if I want to do the opposite? Well, I can click and drag this a little bit. And it has got a plus and minus button here, so I can click the minus button.
It shrinks it, once again, and once again. I can also just go to the edges here and drag it. I might want to have it over her face right here. And then the second frame, I might want that to be big. Now I can drag it up, press the plus key once more, and we can click Done, and now I have got it on her face. Nice move, I can discuss how an amazing ballerina she is, et cetera. So the Pan & Zoom tool really can make your photos come alive in Elements 10.
