The graphics files need to be 8-bit RGB. They cannot be 16-bit or CMYK.

Good points, Tom, thank you. Very common to get tripped up by using CMYK color mode or 16-bit images.

Thanks, Mark. Good article. Could you please comment on the issue of square pixels, vs non-square, and possibly having to resize in Photoshop prior to importing, for computer slide show?

Sonny, if you are working in a native, non-anamorphic HD project, then there is usually nothing to worry about - your footage is square pixels and your Photoshop image can be square pixels. If you are working with SD, DV, or some anamorphic flavor of HD, you'll want your images to match - but frankly FCP X does a pretty darn good job of figuring what needs to be done and adjusting things for you.
