Chapter 9. Editing Still Pictures > Importing Pictures from Other Sources

Importing Pictures from Other Sources

iMovie can easily import photos you’ve scanned or taken with a digital still camera—or better, images that you’ve modified in an image-editing program such as Adobe Photoshop (www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/) or GraphicConverter (www.lemkesoft.com). But first, make sure it’s ready to be imported.

To prepare a still picture for import:

1.
Open the image in your favorite image-editing application.

2.
Size the image so that its dimensions are 640 by 480 pixels (Figure 9.3). Make any other changes you see fit.

Figure 9.3. To fit correctly into a movie, still images must measure 640 by 480 pixels.


3.
Save the image as a JPEG file.
