The confusion with creating still images that look correct in PAL format is down to the fact that video and graphics apps use different size pixels! Square and non-square...
Anyway, do try this:
If you are working for 4:3 ratio, in Photoshop use the 768 x 576 to create the image. Now when outputting the image export it to 720 x 576 pixels. This will look squeezed in PS but when you import it into DVDSP, if it doesn't automatically resize the image to broadcast standard then this is a necessary step.
For 16:9 -
Produce the still image in 1024 x 576 pixels. When ready to output, resize the image to 720 x 576 pixels.
So, this should work fine now.
But if you still have some issues, please can you give me the following details:
- OSX version
- DVDSP version
- Which application you created / edited the still images in?
- What format and pixel size the images are.
- How you are adding them to DVDSP
- What exactly is the problem with the images in DVDSP? (e.g. I outputted 4:3 xxx x xxx pixels and it looks 'stretched/squashed, etc).
If possible screenshots of the before and after of the picture would be helpful.

Hope that helps
