I've been watching the tutorials on how to place background music on to my imovie but I cant work out how to select just a part of a song and place it with the correct photo or video clip. Can anyone help?

Many thanks

    There may be a simpler way, but I use Audacity which is a very good and comprehensive programme that you can download for nothing to edit music. Just import & choose the section of music you want and the length to suit the video clip and then export it to Itunes from where you can import to iMovie. That may be an over-simplification, because you may have to play around with Audacity a little if you are not familiar with it, but like all these things a little patience and trial and error should get you there.
