I would be grateful for instructions on making sound clips from music I bought and adding them to pictures I downloaded from the net. I want to eventually up load to U-Tube. Not knowledgable of any part of the desired outcome.
Sounds like you want a slideshow program. Take a look at this free one: http://download.videohelp.com/tin2tin/ It can export in several different formats.
If you want to cut sections of music out to add to the slideshow, you may have to do that outside this program. For that you could use Audacity, which is a free audio editing program: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
