Camtasia 8 Slide Show. I'm using Camtasia 8 for a personal project. A friend and I are riding our motorcycles to all the locations in "I've Been Everywhere" (Johnny Cash cover). I want to synch those pics to the song. Any tips?  I'm using Windows 7.

No, in odd numbered years, it can only be synced to Hank Snow's version. You missed by one day.

#1: Record a blank screen with the audio track.

#2: Edit the video and place a marker at the positions he mentions a new location. The markers number themselves in sequence, so log what location each marker represents.  

#3: Load your 85 photos in the media bin and start placing them on the markers. It would be great if the marker to marker picture time could be adjusted automatically. But you may have to make a lot of adjustments.

Here's the Hank Snow version in order and I hope you give me a chance to see the finished product!!

HA!  Thanks for the reply.  I was trying to do it all at once.  It will be a while before we get it all done, but we have a decent start.

If I understand you correctly, I should import the track and produce it.  Then go back and insert all the markers?

I don't remember Camtasia 8 very well and didn't think you could add markers to a music track, I may be wrong. No matter how, I think it's music first, then markers, then pictures and you likely know Camtasia 8 better than me. 
If you have a decent start, say 10 or 20 pics, why not start the process now?

Anyway, a great project and Good Luck. Here's a 2nd list, different order, different locations:

Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota,
Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma, Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo, Tocopilla, Barranquilla, and Padilla, 

Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana, Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana,
Monterey, Ferriday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa, Glen Rock, Black Rock, Little Rock, Oskaloosa,
Tennessee, Hennessey, Chicopee, Spirit Lake, Grand Lake, Devil's Lake, Crater Lake,

Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika, Shefferville, Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica,
Pittsfield, Springfield, Bakersfield, Shreveport, Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond Du Lac, 
Davenport, Idaho, Jellicoe, Argentina, Diamontina, Pasadena, Catalina,

Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravellburg, Colorado, Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado,
Larrimore, Atmore, Haverstraw, Chattanika, Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika, Baraboo,
