This is a known issue and we are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.  In the meantime, there are a couple of workarounds available:

  1. Drag the photo to the desktop first, and then into your Day One entry.
  2. Use the share extension from Photos to Day One.
  3. Use the photo picker in Day One and click "Photos" under the Media section of the Finder window.
