How do I edit how long a picture is shown on Windows Movie Maker? Answered

I have put my images on the storyboard, but I don't know how to reduce the amount of time the picture is shown. I believe it is at 5 seconds per picture. I would like to put it at maybe 2 seconds. Please tell me how to do this!

Before you start adding images, go to Tools > Options > Advanced tab. In there you will find "Picture duration", it is 5 sec by default, you can change it down to 2 sec, or as far as 0.125 seconds.

Drag the photo onto the timeline and then you can adjust the length of time it shows there by gripping the right hand side and dragging it.
