      I was presented recently by my local Historical Society with nine C-90 Cassette tapes and asked if I could transfer the contents onto .MP3 files. I did this using a cassette player and Audacity running on a PC.

      I have now been asked if I can combine the sound track(s) with some photographs. Initially I said that I was sure that this could be done with PowerPoint but have subsequently been asked if I can output them to some more generic format that doesn't depend on access to PowerPoint (or equivalent).

      The upshot of this is that I would like to generate a number of .AVI or .MPG files containing the soundtracks and photographs of related places of interest (e.g. the chapel, the village green, etc.).

      Can anyone suggest a suitable piece of software and how best to do it?

      Many thanks in advance.

      An easy to learn software that can accomplish your task would be Cyberlink PowerDirector. There are frequent sales and online coupons. I think it also can use PP files. A robust user-forum is also very handy. Others here may suggest other software.
