Ok I think what you need to do is select the plane and hit control + A to open the attribute editor , then select the material (ie Lambert 2) and go down to hardware texuring and change the texture resolution from default to highest and that should cure it.
you must have a plane to put the image into I can see it in your screen capture above.
If you create a texture in the hypergraph and have not assigned it to anything, yes you can but until you assign it to an object you won't know if it displays correctly.
you can import an image to an image plane in the camera but I personally find this more awkward in my workflow, so i just create a plane and assign an image to it and put it on it's own layer.This allows easier freedom to move it around hide it ect.
