Making a movie from Windows Live Photo Gallery

From: Windows Live Movie Maker Essential Training

Video: Making a movie from Windows Live Photo Gallery

Windows Live Movie Maker works hand in hand with another program called Windows Live Photo Gallery. They are both part of the Windows Live Essentials group of programs. And if you chose just to download Windows Live Movie Maker, you actually got Windows Live Photo Gallery with it. So let's see what happens when we go to her Windows Start button, go to All Programs, and look at the list. Just below Windows Live Movie Maker, you will see Windows Live Photo Gallery. We are going to select that to open it up. Because with Windows Live Photo Gallery, if you choose to use this program to manage your photos--even work on those photos--you can also use it to create a Movie Maker project.

Making a movie from Windows Live Photo Gallery

Windows Live Movie Maker works hand in hand with another program called Windows Live Photo Gallery. They are both part of the Windows Live Essentials group of programs. And if you chose just to download Windows Live Movie Maker, you actually got Windows Live Photo Gallery with it. So let's see what happens when we go to her Windows Start button, go to All Programs, and look at the list. Just below Windows Live Movie Maker, you will see Windows Live Photo Gallery. We are going to select that to open it up. Because with Windows Live Photo Gallery, if you choose to use this program to manage your photos--even work on those photos--you can also use it to create a Movie Maker project.

First, you'll see this little dialog box, asking you if you want to use Photo Gallery to open the various types of graphic files that you see listed here. You can choose yes or no; it's up to you. Next we are going to browse to the folder containing the photos and/or video we want to use in our Movie Maker project, even though we are here in Photo Gallery. We will go to the Assets folder for Chapter 6, and we do have a video clip, as well as a number of photos. Let's say we just want to use the photos. We'll select the first one by clicking it, scroll down to the last one, hold down your Shift key, and click it.

Now you can see all of our photos are selected. Time to create the Movie Maker project right from within Photo Gallery. To do that, click the Create tab on the Ribbon, and in the Share group, you'll see Movie. When we click Movie, it actually takes us into Windows Live Movie Maker. If you didn't have it open, it launches for you and creates a new project titled, by default, My Movie. There is our photo clips over here. They're all selected, so we can do things like add an AutoMovie theme like Contemporary just by clicking it.

If you want music, you can add it by clicking Yes or No. And then you're ready to save your project maybe even publish it, all accomplished by going into Windows Live Photo Gallery where we work with our photos and video and creating our Movie Maker project directly from there.
