Mint 16 is based on Ubuntu 13.10. If you head over at the OpenShot User's forum (yes, they have one) and do some perusing, you'll find that OpenShot 1.4.3 doesn't work well beyond 12.04 (ergo, Mint 13). You might want to downgrade to the LTS version of Mint if you want to use OpenShot 1.4.3.
The reason is because the developers are currently concentrating on developing OpenShot 2.0 which will use its own libraries (as opposed to MLT, AFAICT), and they are making OpenShot a cross-platform NLVE, serving Linux, MacOS and Windows users. This came about due to a successful cowdfunding campaign last year. The target date for 2.0's release is supposed to be early this year.

You change the length setting *before*
importing the pictures. You'll find this under Preferences.
Please allocated some time going through the OpenShot User's Manual (it's under the Help menu). You'll save yourself a lot of grief in the long run by familiarizing yourself with the application.

As I mentioned earlier, OpenShot does have a dedicated forum.
