  1. Having difficulty with the software Windows Moviemaker, once I was able to download it using Google Chrome, the software shuts down or closes while I am using it. It also won’t let me save the slideshow or video once I have added music to it. Keep having to “reopen’ project that was shutdown midstream.
    Any suggestions for another free software that will work with Windows 7
    Thanks

  2. I am a mac user can I use iMovie to create my slide show?
