I'm having trouble doing the following: Given the file name of a gif file, import the image, create a new notebook and paste the image into the notebook. I have no trouble importing the image and showing it through the sequence afile="some.gif" img=Import[afile, "GIF"] Show[img] It's a Raster image, but that's ok. I had expected that, I could do this: to do essentially the same thing: temp=NotebookPut[Notebook[{}]]; NotebookWrite[temp, Import[afile, "GIF"]] But I keep getting cells with error boxes containing the Raster data. I've tried several other variations, but with no success. Anyone know the correct method? Ken Levasseur
