Apologies - I neglected to mention in my previous letter that I am using 
Mathematica version3 and windows 95.
I am attaching the original request.

Subject: [mg19244] Importing graphics into mathematica

I am having a problem importing graphics into mathematica in a form 
which can be manipulated by the kernel.
There is NO problem in opening any graphic image via OPEN in FILE menu 
or copying and pasting.
After opening the graphic in mathematica, I select it and then use the 
command CELL>CONVERT TO>INPUTFORM. This gives a listing of the graphic 
object (apparently different kindsof lists for different objects) but 
the image fails to materialise. Sometimes I get an empty space and at 
other times I get a failed message.
The graphics programs that I use are paint, power point, ipplus and 
micrografx picture publisher.
I would appreciate any help in this regard.
I am writing this from my home computer (So that's the email address 
appearing here.)
My academic address is:
036cgg at

Thanks very much.
