Thanks that really helped, have started using movie maker and seems really good. quick question about it, do you no how you speed up the slide show of photos/ or decide how long a photo appears for? And can you alter the music so it fades out at the end?

thanks again x

yepp, to do both of those you have to click on show timeline (it's just above where the photos are) and you can just click on the pictures and drag the red arrow to shorten/speed them up. And to fade music you right click on it and click fade out.
Hope that makes sense
