I have DSLR still photos shot at 1920x1080 (16:9)  ratio

Photoshop confirms the dimensions-- and also square pixels. (72dpi)


If I create a timeline in FCP7   choosing  a 1920 x 1080   preset (HDTV)...


---when I place the photo on the timeline--   it does not fit the frame.  Black bars on each side.


So , my quesiton is   --Why?   the dimensions are the same----  so I think it should fill the frame perfectly.



To further confound the situation -- If I create a colored test jpeg in photoshop 1920 x 1080 (square pixels  72 dpi)  and drop that in the FCP7 timeline-- it fills the  frame perfectly.


So my 1920x1080 DSLR stills and my 1920x1080 test photoshop jpeg  (identical specs as far as I can see...)  behave differently in FCP7....



Any help appreciated.
