Chapter 9. Editing Still Pictures > Importing Pictures from iPhoto

Importing Pictures from iPhoto

iMovie can easily import photos you’ve scanned or taken with a digital still camera. iMovie 3 makes this process easier by giving you access to your iPhoto library of pictures.

To import pictures from iPhoto:

1.
Click the Photos button to switch to the Photos pane (Figure 9.1).

Figure 9.1. All the pictures in your iPhoto library are accessible from within the Photos pane.


2.
Your entire photo library is shown in the preview area. If you want to access a specific photo album, choose its name from the popup menu.

3.
Click on a photo to select it for importing.

4.
Set the clip’s length by using the Duration slider or type a value in the Duration field (in timecode’s seconds:frames format).

5.
Drag the picture from the Photos pane to the Timeline, where it appears as a regular clip (Figure 9.2).

Figure 9.2. Imported photos appear in the Timeline as video clips.
