    Image Importing Trouble

    Dahwoo
      Hello all I am such a noob.. I have been trying to import an image into my file so I can work with it.. only problem is when I do it (whether its to stage or library) all I get on the stage is a square without the image. if I test my movie I can see the image but it is really hard to work this way. can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? Feel free to write back starting off with:

      Dear Noob.. LOL I appreciate any help

          my guess is you have outlines turned on for the layer.

          Go to the layer on the timeline. There are a couple of icons to the right of the layers name. The third icon is what you want to look at. If it is a box that is just a stroke, then outlines is turned on. Click the box to toggle outlines, and your image will appear on the stage.

            First let me say thanks for trying to help me. I have tried that I even checked the layer properties and it still will not allow me to see the image. when I open other flash files created by someone else I can view the images just fine. are there any other settings that I may be missing that you can think of?

              also one other thing
              if I copy my image from my file and paste it to someone else's it shows... if I copy theirs to mine it still does not show. this has to be some sort of project setting that I am missing.. really frustrating me:(

                Sorry all I got it... it was actually the outlines listed under the view>preview Mode that fixed it... thanks for helping me get going in the right direction ritchey!
