Synfig Studio refuses to open an image

Dell OptiPlex 9010, Windows 10 Professional running on 4.08 GB free of 208 GB, Synfig 1.4.4
When I click on FILE > IMPORT and select an image, nothing shows. No error message, and no image. I tried a large image and nothing appeared. I need help. (I am also a beginner so I do not know how to animate on Synfig)

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:

What type of image? A .png?
