    @Leehongyo Not always a good idea to put your question in the title - it will get cut off. Place the question in the body of the message.

    Go to File, Options, General and check the Clip Default Duration - it should be set to something other than Zero frames. I believe the default is 150 frames (i.e. 5 seconds). You can set that to whatever length you want. Set to 300 frames (10 sec) and then any image you drag out on the timeline will start out at 10 sec.

    You can restore default times by clicking on Restore General Defaults at the bottom of the Options window.

    To make a slight "correction" ("clarification?") to what @Stargazer54 writes - default durations are in absolute frames, so, when Stargazer notes 150 frames as "5 seconds," That's specifically for a 29.97/30 fps project. At 59.94/60 fps 150 frames is 2.5 seconds. At 23.97/24fps it's 6.25 seconds, at 25 fps it's 6 seconds.

    Number of frames (150) divided by framerate of Timeline equals duration, so, adjust as needed.

    Yep, thx for correction @Triem23 . I was thinking at 30 fps.

    @Stargazer54 Lets go with "Clarification," as what you said was correct. ;-)

    @Leehongyo Your question was answered by my first response. Have you worked through the steps provided?

    Also just FYI, the continued usage of "uhm" in your text messages really don't add to the clarity of your question. You might consider not using that in your writing going forward. Only pointing this out since I assume English may not be your primary language?
