    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!

    I’ll probably be more advanced by the time this gets answered but… When I activate motion presets on my image that I imported, it makes the image change to a really bad quality. How do I fix or stop this?

    I can’t seem to get the image to stop and stay. I clicked “Insert Frame,” and it just keeps flying in from the right. Also when I right click on the frame I get WaY more options than appear here. Thanks!@ This is VERY helpful.
