complete Adobe novice here. Three hours later I am still trying to hide a picture. Here's what I am trying to do ....
I have a cow and a boy and a cowboy arranged left to right. I want to uncover one picture at a time. I guess I could drag and drop a white box as I can manage that but I would really like to press on a cover and make it disappear revealing a picture below. Can anyone type super simple instructions for me. I would really appreciate it

If you just want a graphic of a cow and a graphic of a boy appear at a certain point in the timeline then you can just drag the starting point of each object to the point in the timeline where you want it to appear. In the Timing tab, set the Fade In to 0.5 seconds so that the image appears slowly, not suddenly.
