Credits Help

Anyone have any tips for credits?  Movie Maker credits are not very sophisticated.  I’m confidant I can figure something out using Photoshop and Photo Story, but I just wanted to ask around before I got my hands dirty.

Images & Voice

As we wind up (or down?) our projects I found two things some of you might find helpful: one is that for PC folks, there are some quality voice-changer software that’s free (as a Mac user, I was bummed). Not that you need to change your voice to Darth Vader or Marge Simpson, but sometimes a tweak or two can improve the narration quality.

The other was courtesy of George Oberlie (PhD student of History, who also works with the Library)–our GMU Library Online Databases contains a database called AP Images, which we have access to use freely for educational purposes. It was a godsend! Made finding images so much easier. The link will shoot you to the exact page and just scroll down.
