    Hi there i-guru,

    Add a photo from your iPhoto or Aperture library

    • In the Libraries list, select your iPhoto or Aperture library.
    • Do any of the following:
      • To browse albums: Choose Albums from the pop-up menu at the top of the browser, and then scroll through the thumbnails of the photos in the selected album.
      • To browse events: Choose Events from the pop-up menu at the top of the browser, and then scroll through the thumbnails of the photos in the selected event.
        Events appear only in your iPhoto library.
      • To browse faces: Choose Faces from the pop-up menu at the top of the browser, and then scroll through the thumbnails of the photos in the selected event.
      • To browse projects: Choose Projects from the pop-up menu at the top of the browser, and then scroll through the thumbnails of the photos in the selected project.
        Projects only appear in your Aperture library.
      • To find a photo by its filename or keywords: Use the search field at the top of the browser.
    • Select the photo you want to use to see a preview in the viewer.
    • Do one of the following:
      • To insert the photo: Drag it to the timeline between clips or between a clip and a transition.
        As you drag, a blue box appears in the timeline, indicating where the photo will appear in the timeline.
      • To replace a clip with the photo: Drag the photo on top of a clip in the timeline.
        As you drag, a white border appears around the clip in the timeline. When you release the mouse button, choose Replace from the menu that appears. The photo replaces the clip in the timeline.
