best software for photo montage making?

I'm a complete novice.  I hack around in Photoshop and I'm learning Pinnacle.  I've seen photo montages where stills are zoomed on and panned across and nice transitions are made.  I want to do something like this as a holiday gift, but can't seem to find the right software.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  But please, talk to me like I'm an idiot, because mostly, I am.  :)

i've done this in the past with my DVD authoring software.. I dont recall the names of the Windows programs but look at your DVD authoring software (assuming you have one) and I'm sure it can do it.. Of course if you have a Mac, iDVD does this with ease.

 I am currently Mac-less (you listening, Santa?) What I have is an ooooooold version of Pinnacle and Windows Movie maker. 

I don't see what I need in either, but like Photoshop, it could be that I need to know what I'm looking for to find it.

as far as I know you can't do this with photoshop..
If i remember, there was some kind of paid-upgrade to Windows Movie maker that would let you do this.. I think that most of the video-editing programs for Windows have free-trials that will probably let you do this..
What you are referring to is often called the "Ken Burns Effect"

 Thanks for the tips.  Especially the "Ken Burns Effect."  I'm sure that will make finding the what I need easier.  I appreciate it.  I'll check into the moviemaker upgrade. 

Thanks so much - I'll let you know how it goes.   BTW, I did replace the cover of the laptop :) Wasn't easy but wasn't as hard as moving the thermostat was.
