So I have been trying to add image to my iMovie. The problem is I want to add the image at for example 2:00 min. But whenever I drag the image to the project, it always goes in the beginning of the movie. Is there a way I can just drag and drop it to whatever time I want to add it to. This seems to be pretty intuitive but not able to do this.

Click on 1 of your highlighted images and drag it into the clip editing/viewing timeline screen to the left diagonal of the photo display screen. You can drag these images anywhere in the timeline. Hope it helps.


If you're talking about iMovie on the Mac,you can simply drag an image anywhere in the timeline. On iOS, simply position the timeline scrubber at a gap in a space in the timeline where you want your image, and then tap the image from the image chooser.
