I'm going to display my extreme ignorance of AE here and ask this question. I'm inserting about 50 photos into a project and I need them to fit into the bounding box, see attached image.

So my question is number one, how to do this in AE, and number two, if there is a way to resize all of them to my bounding box at the same time.

Thanks for your help!!

Here's an easy way -- make a comp in the precise dimensions of the bounding box. Add your stills to this comp. Scale & position the layers to taste.

The trick: the timing. I presume these pictures would change over time. If it's at regular intervals, Sequence Layers is very handy. You can even specify if you want cuts or dissolves.
