Have you viewed them in your camera's viewer to make sure the were ok there? The first thing I would try is going to your home folder and go to Library/Preferences/ Drag the file to your desktop. Put it on your desktop just in case this is not the problem and you can put it back where it came from. Close the Finder window and start up iPhoto and see if those photos look good now or reimport them from the camera/hard drive.

None of this worked. The picures are fine in the camera's viewer and I can also see them and add Ken Burn's effect from iPhoto within iMovie. When I click "Apply" to insert the picture into the imovie project, it renders it, the frame is solid blue with no image and shows black in the project.

I'm sorry, I wrote the wrong plist file to tell you to put on the desktop. I meant to say put the on the desktop. Make sure iMovie is not running when you take the plist file from your preferences folder to the desktop. Try that and see if that does it. Also, try restarting the computer to give it a fresh start.

Rob, I am not sure if you got my last reply. This did not work either. The pictures look fine in iPhoto. I can print them, modify them but they import as blue blanks to iMovie. There must be solution to this problem somewere.
