I am working in iMovie and have video in my working timeline that I would like to use the audio from over a photo. Does anyone have any tips about how I can accomplish this?

You didn't say what version of iMovie on what version of Mac running what version of OS X, so I'm not sure I can help.

The recent versions of iMovie have an insert command that covers exactly what you're trying to do.

What do you mean by that?

Thanks,chas_m. I'm sorry about that. The iPad is borrowed from a neighbor who has taken it back for the evening, so I can't get confirmation on that information for you. But, the iPad was purchased within the past couple of months and I purchased/downloaded the App a couple of days ago, so I assume it's the latest version of iMovie.

I searched and didn't see a command that covers what I'm trying to do. Can you be more specific?

I apologise, I made an error of assumption. I did not realise you were talking about the iOS version of iMovie, I thought you were talking about the Mac version.

What I think you are asking to do is to "insert" a photo over a piece of video (replacing the video but keeping the audio in sync for a short period). I know you can do this easily in iMovie for OS X, but I'm not sure it can be done in iMovie for iOS, as I've only just started playing with the iOS version myself.

Here's the page for iMovie for iOS: Apple - Apps - Edit HD movies with iMovie. (http://www.apple.com/apps/imovie/)

In one of the illustrations you can see that a photo can be added between video clips, but it doesn't look to me as though you can overwrite the video portion with a photo as you can with the OS X version of iMovie. I could be wrong about this, but someone with more experience with iMovie for iOS will need to chime in.
