Import photos into iMovie without using iPhoto

Apple products are great - if you use all their products. I wanted to use a folder of photos in iMovie, and I don't use iPhoto. I'd done it before, but I couldn't remember, so I'm writing it here.

First open the photo browser in iMovie and drag the divider so you can see the list of sources:
Then just drag the folder you want into that list.


  1. THIS IS AMAZING!!! Thank you for the tip!

  2. OMG this is _so helpful! This will make using iMovie so much easier for me. thankyouthankyouthankyou!

  3. I tried dropping my photo folder in (all saved as jpegs) and its saying:

    The file will not be imported.
    It is not compatible with iMovie.


  4. It worked finally!! THANK YOU :)
