I like these to gracefully fade in and fade out. Seems a bit of a pain to have to set keyframes and adjust opacity. Seems there would be some automated way to do that
Use dissolves instead.
Apply a single-sided transition
...if there is a simple way I'm overlooking that would allow me to just swap out Image A and replace it with Image B in the sequence. I'd like to keep the fades in place as well as the position on the screen.
To swap out images in the Timeline, Alt + Drag and drop
the new image onto the one you want to replace.
Keep in mind that you can copy the first image, then "Paste Attributes" on any new image that you place in the sequence and it will adopt all of the same attributes, to include motion and scale, etc.
Edit: By the way, pasting attributes is better in CC because it gives you choices about which attributes to paste.
Alt + Drag and drop retains the 'Motion Effect' settings
of the original clip... no copy > paste attributes needed.
Appreciate the guidance, folks!
Off to try it out. I know Adobe Edge has a button you click in the properties panel to swap images. Ahhhh, consistency between apps.
Yes, but if I am picturing this issue correctly, he would have to have placed multiple copies of he image to swap out whereas putting each new image in as he thinks of it would indicate that copy/paste attributes might work.
It depends on his workflow.
I work in a linear fashion with a non-linear editor. I edit as I place things, so planning ahead is not my strong suit.

Select image (and transitions), Ctrl+C, reposition playhead, Ctrl+V,
Alt+Drag and drop.
Transitions and Motion Effects are still in place.

Just wanted to say Hi, and it looks like you are in great hands with Joe and Steven giving you input.
Do not feel bad, as most of us work in certain programs, and when we deviate, are faced with questions. That is what this forum is all about - helping everyone with PrPro.
Good luck with your Project, and I have nothing to add to what has been offered so far.
There is no shame in asking questions as an ACP.
I have done it several times in the past for programs I know very little about.
Any way Alt+drag is the way to go.
You could make up a sample title and apply resizing, etc. to it, and then place multiple copies of those in the timeline as placeholders. Then later on, after you make up the proper titles, highlight a title in the bin, then in the timeline, right-click the title you want to update and do "Replace > From Bin" I believe it is called and it will update the clip using whatever media is highlighted in the bin. Any effects on current clip are kept. Hope this helps

Alt+drag and replace from bin are somewhat the same
The first you start from the PW the second from the timeline.
You can also replace a still image or clip from the Source Monitor even with a matching frame.
