How to make a YouTube video with pictures?

Step 1. Download Free Windows Movie Maker
A lot of video editing software are now made available in the market which can help you create your own videos. However, most of them require payment. Windows Movie Maker, a free video editing software released by Microsoft, can help you create and edit videos as well as publish them on YouTube, OneDrive, Facebook, Vimeo, and Flickr.

Step 2. Import Media Files for Your YouTube Video
The first step of making YouTube video is to import pictures, videos, and music into Movie Maker!

Free Windows Movie Maker allows you to import videos and photos from Photo Gallery, a DVD, a digital camcorder or a smartphone to create your own video.

To add photos and videos that are on your hard drive to Movie Maker, you can click on the Add videos and photos button in the Home tab on the ribbon, and then browse media files you'd like to add.

To import photos and videos from a device connected via USB, you can press the File button from the upper left corner, and then select Import from device.

Next, click or tap OK when you see the message "Photos and videos will be imported into Photo Gallery".

Select the device you like to import photos and videos and then click Import button.

After that, you have two options: Review, organize, and group items to import, and Import all new items now. Now, you can select a suitable one according to actual needs to import media files.

Step 3. Add Some Special Effects to Make Your Own YouTube Video
After importing files, you can see them in the right Storyboard Pane, as shown below. Select the video or picture and drag it into the proper position within the timeline to change the order of these clips. Now, you need to style up your video to get the best result.

a) Split and Trim Video
To divide up a long clip of footage, you can drag the vertical bar to the point where you want to split and then click on the Split tool. Movie Maker will now split the clip at the exact time you've chosen.

After splitting, you can insert another file such as a picture or add a transition between the two sections of the video.

Windows Movie Maker allows you to remove pieces at the beginning or end of the clip to make it shorter, leaving the best part of a clip in your movie.

Select the clip you want to trim.
Click the Trim Tool.
Drag the slider left or right at any time to locate the trim points precisely
Click Save trim to get the video between those handles.

Add Transition and Effects
To cater to the needs of different people, Windows Movie Maker offers 9 transition types including Diagonals, Dissolves, Shapes and Patterns, Reveals, Shatters, Sweeps and Curs, Wipes, Cinematic, and Contemporary to help create seamless transitions for any of the clips in sequence.

Adding Effects

With free Movie Maker, you can also add a deep set of visual flair to your sequence via effects.

Click Visual Effects tab, and then you can see the wide number of effects. Now, you just need to hover your mouse over a specific effect and see what it looks like in your movie. If you are satisfied with the effect, just click on it to attach it to the desired clip.

c) Add Title, Caption, and Credits
To give your movie more authenticity, you can add title, caption, and credits.

d) Add Music and Narrations
After editing your movie, you can add music & narrations to it.

You can click the Add music button and select it from its location on your computer to import it. Or, you can download music from Vimeo and Free Music Archive. Once you have added a music clip, it shows up as a green bar under your video clips, and you will see the Music Tools menu. Now, drag and drop it to move it just like video clips.
