The great thing about iPhoto is not only is it perfect for managing all of your photographs, but you can manage your movies too. Since so many digital cameras record video now, this is really a benefit. So let me show you how easy it is. It's just like importing the pictures, only it's a movie. So I'm going to connect my camera right now. I have some movie stuff on it. Just as before it shows up right over here in the Library pane and just see we have couple of movies.
We know they're movies because they have the cute little movie camera icon. So I'm going to pick this one right here. I could pick them all and just to Import All or I can select individually just like photographs. In this case, we'll select this one movie and I'll click on the Import Selected button. And iPhoto will bring that movie in. Now if you have photos and movies all on the same memory card, you can bring them all in once and then organize them a bit later.
We're going to talk about actually some of those organizing techniques. As before I talked about this, if you saw this in an earlier movie, I recommend that we just let that movie stay on the memory card for now. Here we go. It's in our Last Import. We have our little movie icon, we have how long the movie is, and you can actually watch your movie right here in iPhoto. Let me double-click on this. So there's our movie right there and I could play it all for you right now. I tell you it's Hollywood moviemaking at its finest, but I'll spare you that and I will double-click on it again to minimize it.
If we go to Events you will see that our movie is in here with all of our other photos. So it's great. Everything is together in one place. And I will talk a little bit more about how to organize your movies from your still photos very soon. But right now the main message is it's just as easy to bring those movies in as it is those photos.
