I am trying to insert a company logo into an iMovie clip, but the logo always comes out too large for the box it is inserted 'in'... I have not and can not figure out how to resize the logo within the crop box. I have tried re-sizing the photo, and re-inserting it, but I just get a grainy/fuzzy logo that is the same size (just zoomed in).

How do I insert a logo/photo, then resize the photo to fit?

MacBook Pro w/4GB RAM and 320GB HDD, Mac OS X (10.5.2), I hate Vista

    Try creating your logo in the same dimensions as your project, e.g. 1920x1080, 960x540, 640x480, etc. Save as JPEG or PNG

    Then drag this photo onto the frame where you want the logo to start and choose Picture in Picture.

    You can adjust by using the Cropping, Ken Burns, & Rotate command. Just select the picture, then from the gear icon or the window menu select Cropping, Ken Burns, & Rotate. Then adjust in the preview window. I had the same problem with my club's logo. I am still learning how to use iMovie '09. My only complaint is that I have not figured out how to do precision audio adjustments like in iMovie '06. I thought that version had better control over things. Hope they add that functionality back sometime.

    I've had the same problem. I'm trying to take a company logo and insert it over a background, so that I have a logo with a background all the same color (white, for example) to match the logo image. I keep getting those annoying black bars on either side of the logo and I can't seem to be able to figure out how to do this correctly.

    When I drag my PNG24 Bit logo into iMovie 09, select picture-in-picture, the logo overlays and is positionable, however the logo is cut-off - doesnt fit the import area it gives me. Resizing it doesnt help, and if I change it to Crop or Ken Burns, it will show full logo, but has a black background. Any suggestions?
