Another thing that i do that is wonderful because i never have any problems no matter what format i use.. is i make a lambert, then click on the thing beside color, push file.. then browse to my refrence image. This puts it to the lambert. Then i just make my plane and apply it to that.. sometimes the image on the lambert requires a 90degree turn.. but thats easy.

HAL, I got that same error when I tried to use Progressive jpgs. I changed them to basic and have had no problems since. But it could just be me I have had some rather odd things happen when I follow my "wonder what this does?" instincts.
