error message when I import the pictures. It says “unsupported file or
damaged” which leads me to think that the file is too big as it’s close to

it much smaller. The only issue is that when I insert it in my timeline it
looks real fuzzy. The crispness and resolution has been lost.
Not sure what is going on here. Any help would be great! Thanks for the

It all comes down to resolution.
If you are working with HD, save the PNG file at 1920 X 1080.
If you are working with standard def, save the PNG as 720 X 480 (assuming NTSC, PAL is different).
You could always save the files a little larger but I have found it best to have the still images I use on my timeline to be close in size to my output resolution.
One exception would be if you intend to zoom in more than a little (Ken Burns effect), in which case the zoomed in (smaller) segment should come close to matching your output resolution.
