I have iMovie 9 and cannot totally control the duration of my photo clip. When I move on to another photo, having set that photo to say 4.5 seconds, a previous photo changes to whatever it likes!! It's so random!! And so annoying. Can you please tell me how I can totally 'Anchor' my clip size/length to be 'Excatly' the length I'd like it to be please.

Thank you.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Not sure if it's the same in iMovie 9, but in 11 go into iMovie Preferences>General and tick/untick the Display Time as HH:MM:SS option, then try again. Also, do you have Transitions between your photos? That can also cause changes to another clip.
