A Question about Windows Media Player.
I have a .mp3 file(a song). Now, in the background, while this song is playing I would love to see a certain picture I have. I am aware that I can make it a "video" file with Windows Movie Maker. But is there any other way of doing this? If this is too confusing I can provide a screenshot of what I mean.

You can go here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...visualizations and download the WMP plugin "Picture Viz I" or "Picture Viz II". Just click on the downloaded exe to install. It will play a slide show of pictures that are in My Pictures.

In WMP on the Now Playing screen right-click and select Picture Viz. You can go into Tools > Options > Plugins tab, go to Properties to change the settings.

Is it possible to show only one picture that I want, which I can browse to personally?

Edit: I have figured this out. But, is it possible so that the picture only shows up on ONE music file that I want?

You'd have to do it manually. Turn on the Picture Viz visualization when that song plays and turn it off for other songs.

Ah well. Guess I might as well make it an mp4.

Another approach would be to get an image viewer program, setup a slideshow with the picture and add the one music file to it. That way the image could also be full screen.

I use FastStone Image Viewer which will create a slideshow with music, but there are many other image programs that will do the same thing.
