Chapter 12. Working with Audio Tracks > Adding Still Images to an Audio Track

Adding Still Images to an Audio Track

The technique for merging audio with still images differs from the technique for merging audio with an existing movie only in that you can take advantage of QuickTime Player’s capability to change the duration of a track. This makes it easy to match the duration of a single still image or a sequence of images (as in a slide show) to the duration of the audio.

To add a single still image to an audio track:

1.
In QuickTime Player, open or import the audio file to which you want to add an image.

2.
Still in QuickTime Player, open or import your still-image file in a separate window; and from the Edit menu, choose Copy. (With nothing selected, the current—and only—frame is copied.)

or

Open the image in a graphics application and copy it from there.

3.
Click the window that contains the audio movie; and from the Edit menu, choose Select All (Figure 12.4).

Figure 12.4. In the audio movie, choose Edit > Select All.


4.
From the Edit menu, choose Add Scaled (Figure 12.5).

Figure 12.5. Use Add Scaled to add copied image data.


The audio movie’s window expands to accommodate the graphic (Figure 12.6).

Figure 12.6. The graphic is added to the audio movie and appears for the duration of the audio.


5.
Save the movie that contains both the sound and the graphic as a self-contained file.
