How to splice two pictures together in Movie Maker

P
#1
I've read all the information on how you can combine two video clips together
in Movie Maker, but I'm looking for a way to get two pictures into one frame.
Does this have to be done before I import the pictures into Movie Maker?
I've also tried to do that in Picture Manager and Photo Gallery with no luck.
Can anyone tell me how to combine two pictures into either one .jpeg or into
one frame in Movie Maker?

Thanks!

==================================
I think your best bet would be to combine the
pictures in a digital image editing program...
crop the resulting file to the proper aspect ratio
and then import it into movie maker.

Also you may find the following link to be worth
a look.

(yes it works on videos and pictures)

The freeware IrfanView can combine the pictures
edge to edge and FastStone Image Viewer has
a good crop tool that will allow you to crop the
combined image to the required aspect ratio.
