Importing images to iMovie
I have just installed iMovie, as it seems to do everything that I want to do. Trouble is, I need to convert a number of home movies before I can start 'making movies'.
To get used to the software I though that I would make a movie from some still images on my iMac. The trouble is that iMovie does not recognise any of them. It sees the images in the photo booth but nothing in other folders below pictures.
How can I import normal images (.jpg) into iMovie? I don't really want to buy iPhoto at this stage.

Or drag and drop the photo directly into the project timeline where you want it to be. If you have the advanced options enabled you will be able to do picture in picture, cutaways, and so on.
Bear in mind though, if you have strong shadows in the project the export quality with iMovie is terrible. It produces nasty artifacts and banding.
Have a read through this thread:
I raise this now before you start a large project etc, just so you know what to expect.
For normal video, recorded in good light etc, you should be fine. For anything with darker areas or shadows take note of the above thread.
