The use of a music track can help keep the pace going on a particular video. Now Photoshop …is not designed for super precise editing to the beats of music. You can slide things …around, but in this case, it really just works well as background sound. Let's go ahead and …place a music track on a dedicated audio only track. …I am going to make it easier to see the whole timeline by zooming out my magnification level, …and make the timeline a bit bigger here so I could see everything. You will notice, we …have an audio track, by default, already added. Let's put the playhead up at the beginning, …and we will click the Plus button and we will navigate to an audio track.…
There we go. I will choose an MP3 file and open it up, and it puts it into my timeline. …Now in this particular case, the song is longer than I want, so I will need to shorten it. …You can decide to go ahead and edit the music to make it precisely end on a beat, or just …drag in and take advantage of simple things like fades. …
