Of course they can! That's part of the fun.
Just remember -- for best results (per the FAQs to the right of this forum) resize your photos to no larger than 1000x750 pixels before you bring them into a project.
You may also want to look into keyframing and creating motion paths (pans & zooms around your photo) a trick that can make even still photos seem to be moving and alive.
Thank you so much. I have the photo presentation done....looks great with the transitions you spoke of. Now I want to edit the video and insert it into the presentation.....Again thank you....

Steve has made mention of it, and it sounds like you're ahead of the curve, but if you do need to resize any of the stills, this ARTICLE will step you though some automation of that process.
