If you've placed photos in a video timeline, Photoshop makes it easy to apply zooms and pans to those images. This can create subtle movement that makes the photo feel more integrated with the video portions of your program. I'm going to go ahead and select the first clip here and all I need to do is zoom in to make this easier to see. If I click the little button here, it's going to pop-up the option for Motion, and I could choose Pan and Zoom to move across the image. Notice you can set the direction, as well as tell it to resize. You can choose to zoom in or out, and what this will do is create a subtle movement on the image.
In this case, it starts tighter and reveals our subject, and I set the direction to match where they we're looking. Let's select our next clip here, click the button Property there and I'll choose to do is Zoom, I'll tell to zoom from the Top Down and to zoom in, and I chose the Resize to Fill Canvas. There we go, it anchors off the top, so we see our subject and it zooms in to show them better.
These moves are very easy. You'll find different options as you choose from the presets, including the ability to set an initial starting point, as well as an angle. Now tweaking the zoom or the move is going to give you nice results and be sure to just integrate this into your standard slideshows or when using photos within on a video presentation.
