Correcting a Decorative object size and speed in Photostory 2020

This Photostory tutorial is a solution to an issue a member of the forum is having with a Decorative element changing size as it moves across the screen after being resized to make it smaller.

There are several ways of doing the correction, this tutorial is one method and was created using Photostory 2020, the same technique is applicable to earlier versions where the key framing function is available, and to Movie Edit Pro 2021 and Video Pro X 12 and earlier versions.


Photostory 2022, Movie Edit Pro/Movie Studio 2022 and Video Pro X 13 have new Size, Position and Rotation features - in principle the technique is the same for these programs, however the reference point (0,0) for the Position is now the centre of the screen, in earlier versions 0,0 is the top left corner of the screen.
