11Editing Still Pictures

After purchasing a camcorder, I didn’t throw away my trusty digital still camera. In fact, on a day-to-day basis, I find myself taking more photos than shooting video footage; compact digital cameras are just so easy to carry around.

iMovie makes it easy to incorporate those stills into your movie projects, whether you’re creating a slideshow, adding a series of pictures to accentuate video footage, or creating graphics or Photoshop-enhanced title screens. With iMovie, it’s a snap to add any image from your iPhoto library.

This chapter also includes information about the highly touted Ken Burns Effect, a panand-zoom operation that adds motion to otherwise static images.
