Getting started with Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker is a feature of Windows Vista that enables you to create home movies and slide shows on your computer, complete with professional-looking titles, transitions, effects, music, and even narration. And when you’re ready, you can use Windows Movie Maker to publish your movie and share it with your friends and family.

You can use Photo Story 3 for Windows to create visually compelling and fun stories using your pictures and music. This article walks you through the basics of creating a photo story and shows you how easy and fun it can be!
Narrating your pictures

You can add narration and custom pan and zoom effects to your photo story to make it more unique and personal.
To add narration to your story you need to have a working microphone attached to your computer and set up correctly. A wizard will help you set up your microphone to record narration. There is also a text input area to create cue cards which can be a helpful memory aid when narrating your pictures.


We have 3 USB microphones available for loan from the Oxstalls Learning Centre Service Desk to help you capture your audio files for your Digital Storytelling assignments.
