I am a new user of premier pro and now I am working with a series of still pictures. I want to change the default duration for each still picture from 5 seconds to 2 seconds, but even if I follow the instructions in the tutorials: edit->preferences->timeline ond changing the default setting from 5 sec. to 2, clikking ok,  the time the duration of the picture does not change, even if the default is described as 2 seconds where you change it, but not in the panel.  I suppose I do something wrong, but cannot figure out what. grateful for some help.

Easiest way to do this may just be either delete all the clips from your project and reimport them. If that isn't an option or you've already dropped a bunch of clips on the timeline, can can select all of those clips on your timeline, right click, and select Speed/Duration and change the duration to 02;00. After applying that, all clips will be trimmed down to 2 seconds duration.

The quickest way to do this is to select all of the stills you want to change the duration of to change, right click the selecion, select speed duration, change the duration up or down and make sure Ripple Edit Shifting Trailing Clips is checked.
