I want to add some pictures to my movie in iDVD, I assume it is 1920 x 1080 (16x9) for widescreen, but my pictures are still looking pixelated-what should the picture sizes be for a nice quality widescreen-so that it looks sharp? These are all high resolution images.

Thanks,
Natalie

1920x1080 is HD which iDVD doesn't do.

from what I remember, 853x480 is standard def for iDVD.

Thank you Terry. I am a little confused-idvd doesn't do HD, but it does do widescreen? Is that different?

Yes it is. 16:9 and HD are not one in the same. All HD is 16:9, but standard def DVDs can either be 4:3 or 16:9 and in either case the resolution is LESS ie. NOT HD.

Think about the many movies that have been on DVD for years. They are NOT Blu-ray (HD), but they are widescreen.
