Choose the "Load Layer Picture..." item beneath the File menu. This will bring up an Open File dialog box. Navigate your drive and select the picture you wish to open. Pictures may be of type "JPEG", "GIF", "BMP", "PNG", or "PICT". You will need QuickTime 6.0 or later installed for all but "BMP" (for Windows) or "PICT" (for Macintosh).
Upon opening the picture, the picture should be opened and displayed in the main VisiLaunch window. This window will also be resized to exactly fit the dimensions of the picture.
