I know it's not strictly a cosplay question, but I thought it was close enough to the mark.
Any advice or personal experiences are appreciated. Thanks!!

Step 1 - if you want to crop, adjust lighting etc - use a photo editing software or site like Photoshop or Photobucket respectively.
Step 2 - Open Windows Movie Maker. (if you don't have it you can get it free from Microsoft if you just google Windows Movie Maker. Also - here is a link: http://www.microsoft...ails.aspx?id=34 )
Step 3 - click 'Import Pictures' on the left side bar. Find the appropriate folder, select the pictures. Click Ok
Step 4 - Add some sound. You can either 'Import audio or music' which allows you to get prerecorded things - or you can use the narration function AFTER the pictures have been added to the slide show (refer to step 8b)
Step 5 - Make a fancy Title page using 'make titles or credits' and 'add title at the beginning of the movie'
Step 6 - Drag and drop photos to the blue box on the bottom of the page in the order you like (Using the storyboard function makes it easier)
Step 7 - Using the Storyboard view, click the small blue arrows between the boxes to add transitions like FADE and CHECKERBOARD to name a few. you can add and delete over and over again to see which make the movie look it's best.
Step 8 - Make some cool credits using 'make titles or credits' and 'add credits to end'
Step 9 - Play video from start to finish to make sure everything is good.
Step 10 - Under Finish Movie click 'save to my computer'. Follow the instructions for the media file best suited to your computer and click save.
Hope this helps
