i want to make a youtube slideshow video, not a webcam one, just a slide show that i can add music in and stuff. what's the best and easiest software to use for that?
Windows movie maker is the best option for what you want to do.
You only really need other viedo editing programs if you really want to go into video effects and stuff :)
Windows movie maker is also on your computer already (assuming you have any version of windows)
Windows Movie Maker is best i think so
