 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 GeoGraphics[{{Polygon[ Dated[Entity["HistoricalCountry", "ByzantineEmpire"], DateObject[{500}]]]}}, 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.

Hi Denis,

Looking forward to seeing the end result of your project.

I came across this. If you get stuck you may want to look at it.

 Thank you so much I had a little delay, but I have finally finished it. Also, many thanks for the spoiler :) historicalCountryAnimate["ByzantineEmpire", 100, GeoRange -> {{20, 60}, {-05, 50}}]
