DVD Problems Photos Look Jaggy and Awful on DVD All over the world, every single day, more Mac fans try to turn their digital photos into DVD slideshows using iMovie--and fnd out that the photos look terrible. What makes this syndrome so baffing is that the photos probably began life with super high resolution and look fantastic in Photoshop or iPhoto. But once they arrive on a DVD, the pictures look lousy. It turns out that when you click the Create iDVD Project button in iMovie (the usual way to hand off the project to iDVD), iMovie offers to process any still photos--to render them, turning them into what amounts to motionless video. "Your movie contains still, slow motion, and/or reverse clips," it says. If you click "Render and Proceed," iMovie does a pretty poor job at converting them into video, resulting in jaggy blockiness. (This conversion is permanent in iMovie. Once it's done, your photos will always look bad in iMovie until you reinsert the originals.)
