1 Import your files

Click “Import” to load your songs from ripped CD or downloaded from the internet. Then drag and drop your desired photo in format like JPG, JPEG, JPE, GIF, BMP, PNG, DIB, JFIF, TIF, TIFF to the primary window. Now you’ll see all imported files displayed as thumbnails in the Media library.

2 Drag and Drop to add pictures to music

Drag songs and pictures from Media library to the separate Timeline accordingly. Highlight the picture in the Video Timeline, and move your mouse to the ending part. When the “adjust duration” icon appears, drag it to fit for the length of your music file. Tips: You can drag the Timeline slidebar left or right to find the exact position conveniently.

After that, check the effect in the right previewing window. If necessary, you can do more to touch up your creation, e.g. add captions, apply special effects, transitions, and even create a picture-in-picture effect.
