Importing images for use with web animation

Hello all,

Im slowly learning synfig. Its not that its all the difficult Im just stressed for time. However the lack of documentation and some of the more obscure layout of the gui and workflow function has slowed me down some.

How can I import an image file such as a jpg or png and animate it?

I tried using an import layer but once the file path is copy pasted (why is this not a file browser type window that opens?) into place I cant get it to move or resize or anything else.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Better use the Canvas Menu Caret>File>Import and select the image file. It would allow to play with it.
We are aware about the lack of file chooser in the Import Image layer parameter. Any patch for that will be welcome.

AHA! Thanks the first time I tried that nothing happened!!!
