How to convert image files to a movie file

I need to convert an image file to a movie file so I am able to play in a loop of videos as part of a presentation.

What applications will I be able to use to do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You are probably looking for a "slideshow" program. Something like SoundSlides?

For showing image files in a presentation you are probably better off using a presentation software like LibreOffice Impress, then adding the files to a slideshow type presentation, which you can repeat as needed. With impress you can also have different types of transitions between each frame.

It is OpenSource and free, and together with PortableApps you don't even have to use a standard type of installation. You can put it on a USB stick if you want and then load it from that stick from any Windows PC that allows you to use USB sticks.

If you aren't using Windows as your OS, LibreOffice is also available with most Linux Distributions, as well as other OS Platforms.

Mac or PC?

On a Mac, Fotomagico is best. On a PC , ProShow Gold.

XNview can create slideshows, which can then be packed to a single executable (which is exactly what you need for your USB)
If you don't like to have an executable, then download an addon to export it to a movie.

If your TV has a USB port, there is a good chance all you have to do is put the images on a USB drive and plug it in. Many of these TVs will recognize the image files and allow you to do a slideshow of them without any additional software or hardware. We do this at a number of trade shows, and also at a local venue where we hold corporate events.
