So, basically I want to make a map of the byzantine empire through the years. I think that I need to manipulate a ton of photos and control when which photo pops up. The thing is I dont understand how to code that or how to make the pictures melt together for smooth viewing, but the melt thing is a bit over board so I just need a ton of photos. I think?

Rather than photos, maybe you can use historical entity information in WL.

DateValue[Entity["HistoricalCountry", "ByzantineEmpire"][#], "Year"] & /@ {"StartDate", "EndDate"}
(* {395, 1453} *)

Empire and country borders in the year 500

    Dated[Entity["HistoricalCountry", "ByzantineEmpire"], 
 GeoBackground -> {"CountryBorders", DateObject[{500}]}]

You try using Table to generate a list of GeoGraphics for a range of years and Export them to AVI or GIF.
