    Background in Movie maker

    I am making a movie of old photos in movie maker. This creates a black
    background behind the photos. Can I change the background color or put one
    picture behind all of the other pictures to create my own background?

    ==============================
    You see the background when you
    use pictures in the Portrait orientation.
    If you crop the files to the Landscape
    orientation you won't see the background.

    FWIW...if your project only includes
    still shots...PhotoStory 3 is a better app.

    I think u can but you have to use the photo editor then import it to your movie maker apply to story board then post your pics over them. or create background then post your pics on them straight to the photo gallery then import to movie maker then apply to story board. i created movie of my pics to and use windows dream scene to play them as my background as i work on my pc.
