    @JaaIs your project setting size setup the same as your photos, if not they might need re-scalling.

    As Andy said, if your project size and picture sizes don't match, you're going to have to scale them. Assuming all your pictures are the same size, load all pictures in. Create a point. Select all pictures and parent them to the point. Scale the POINT. Unparent the pictures.

    @StormyKnight suggested the following in the Hardware thread this was split from. It's a better suggestion than mine. 

     

    Jaa- Once the pics are in HitFilm, make a new composite shot and in the media panel select the top picture. Then press and hold shift and then select the bottom picture- this should have them all selected. Next, left click on any picture and drag them to the composite shot. Keeping them all selected, you can resize all the pictures at once by grabbing one of the corner points and scale to the size you want and to keep the same aspect ratio press and hold shift as you make the adjustments. It should be a lot quicker than scaling them one at a time but if the pics are all different sizes you may have to adjust some individually.

    Hope that helps!

    On the editor timeline you can also choose one of the 'fit' options from the clip's menu - that should work with multiple clips, I think.

    @jaa You're welcome.

    @SimonKJones @Andy001z @StormyKnight we just came up with four ways of doing the same operation in the interface. First, we rock *fistbump*. Second, never let it be said Hitfilm isn't flexible.

    Triem23 - *fistbump* Now if I were only as flexible as HitFilm!
