How many pictures should I have?
Depending on how long you want your video to be will determine how many pictures/video clips you should use.If you want a 3 minute show you would want to collect about 50 pictures and/or video clips. A 5 minute show would use about 80. That does not mean a 3 minute show can not be done with just 25 pictures and/or video clips. Extra graphics can be used to fill in time as well. It also depends on the music choice. If you choose a faster song, more pictures, graphics or video clips can be used. A slower song, less is needed.
