Picture Duration in Movie Maker

P
#1
I'm trying to make a DVD slide show from photos, for my son's graduation.
I want to change the default picutre duration for he entire project from 5
seconds to 10 seconds.
I found the dialog box fo it, on "Tools - Options", but it doesn't work.
I can change it on the screen, but it doesn't stay.
There is no "save" button.
Is there a secret?
And why can't Microsoft make things right the first time?

the option is only applied to the next pictures being moved to the project
timeline/storyboard... not to those already there....

it's not a right or wrong thing... that's the way it is... personally I
don't make projects that use the same picture duration for all the pictures
in it.

I know that, but I tried applying it to new pix, and it still doesn't work,
not even for a whole new projedt.
I want to use the same duration for most but not all slides.
I know how to change individual slides, but I don't want to do it for a
hundred of them.

I have a solution for you. Take the 'Slow Down, Half' effect and apply it to
all your pictures at once. Begin by selecting all your pictures in the
storyboard mode, then right-clicking on the 'Add to Storyboard' option.
Alternatively in the timeline view, select them all and choose 'Copy', then
'Paste'.
