Another alternative would be to separate the music from the video for the whole of the video, insert the photo and fades and then cut the music track twice in appropriate places. Then move the last piece of music to the end of the piece, copy the middle bit of music and paste it in the gap. Quite tricky to do and the practicality depends on the music but it can be done.

Yes but ideally I want the slides to fade in and outlasting for about 10 secs each

When I have put photos into a video I have found that 5 seconds is about right. Obviously it depends on the photo and what you are trying to achieve.

The Photos or rather their message is more important than the video so fade in for a couple of secs, full for 5 then fade out again

In my version of WMM to alter the default times I can enter precise seconds via: Tools - Options - Advanced tab, Picture duration, Transition duration. Do this prior to dragging photo to storyboard/timeline.

very useful site for Windows Movie Maker http://www.papajohn.org/

Kevscar1, That was just an example, The photos can be any length you require them to be.

The program is MoviePlus Starter Edition, Get it from this Click here.

I will help you to use it, If you get stuck (It's very easy to use, honest).

That's pretty much what I meant - I thought you meant show the photos for a full 10 secs!

I think a 2 sec fade is rather long though. As I said before - it all depends on what you're trying to achieve.
