Default Trying to get an image onto a polygon plane

I just started with Maya and im following a tutorial that is using Maya 2008 and im on 2009. The guy in the tutorial creates a regular polygon plane and then assigns a new material to it (lambert)

when he does that he gets up a new window where he can choose to cover the plane with an image.

His window looks like this http://cristianmalmros.com/printscreen/maya2008.png

and my window looks like this: http://cristianmalmros.com/printscre...2009_right.png

Now I can't find any "browse for file" button like he has and I can't figure out how to get my image onto the plane like he does

Grateful for any help :bow:

Next to the Color slider, is a little checker box. Click on that, and in the new window, click on File. After that, it's pretty straight forward.

Edit: Bah, just beat me to it. :p
