How can I add a photo on top of my video, so that I can still get the audio to play, and the music? I just want to show a picture of something I may be talking about during a video. How do I do this?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

    Drop your image to the clip in which you want it displayed. Select the "blue" ribbon above the clip and adjust the length of time to display your image. Slide the "blue" ribbon to the segment of the clip where you want it to display.

    Many people seem to have a problem putting a "watermark" on their iMovie videos. This was such a no brainer that I was amazed I didn't think of it. I needed to add a logo to a corner of an iMovie video, but you know, there's no "watermark" button (duh)! I just threw together a .png file, put it in iPhoto, imported it to iMovie, placed it and adjusted the length as you directed.

    Piece of cake! Thanks so much!

    So how do I make it only occupy one corner and be translucent? I have figured out how to get it into Imovie but it just takes over the screen...

    You place on a transparent background of the same dimensions as your movie clips at the scale and location you want. This background graphic can then be overlaid and stretched to your main project within iMovie '08. However, this is not the only or the easiest method. It can also be done as a post-edit using QT Pro which allows independent scaling and placement of dissimilar aspects/dimensions.
