Do you want the pictures to fill your video frame or do you want them smaller than the video frame so that the video shows behind them?
Have a look at my sample "Add Motion Behind Your Slideshow" sample and see if that's what you're trying to do.
In any event, you put the video on one video track and the photos on a track above it, basically.
There's much more to explain, but before we get too deeply into that, we need to know exactly what you're trying to do. Can you link us to a YouTube video example?
The person in the video will mention the picture. At that point I would like to cover the video with the picture full screen for about a minute, while retaining the audio from the video underneath. Then I will cut back to the video. I tried dropping the picture on the timeline but it covered the audio as well.
Make sure you're in Timeline mode, not Sceneline.
Place your video on Video 1. Then WHILE HOLDING DOWN THE CTRL KEY drag your photo to Video 2 above it. In Timeline mode, you can also control how long the photo stays on screen.
BTW, as we often tell people on this forum and as I explain in my books, you should ensure that no photo you use in a Premiere Elements project is larger than 1000x750 pixels (at 72 ppi). Large photos can paralyze the program.
Thank You. This is exactly what I needed. I was not in “Timeline.”
