hello,

does anyone know why the resolution of my holiday pictures decreases when i insert them into my imovie project? the original pictures are great quality but they look terrible in imovie. In one of the pictures i can't tell whether i'm smiling, or chewing a brick!
i can't seem to find anything to change the picture quality, any ideas?

thanks, don

Well remember that iMovie makes films for viewing on a TV set, so they're stretched to be a lot.

Unless the original images are really high resolution I think you'll always see a slight loss of quality.

Do you use the 'Ken burns' effect? That basically zooms in on an image, so if your images are lower quality you might want to turn off ken burns as it'll zoom in and magnify any imperfections in the image...
