Changing a paintoval to an image file

Hi, I was wondering if there was anyway to replace a paintoval into an image file in lcd? Each one’s location creates new volume level output?

Double-click on the “p images” subpatch of the file.

You can read about the ‘readpict’ and ‘drawpict’ messages in the reference manual.

(Contrary to what the manual implies, ‘readpict’ works with other image file formats besides .pct, a fact that is demonstrated in the help file.)

I would like to replace the paintoval dots at the bottom of this patch with pictures – I can’t figure out how I might do it though. The p panel > p ovals is where I would guess I could do this but I’m having no luck at all…

Any help would be greatly appreciated in this specific context.

Great, thanks guys. All making sense – the read part was something I was missing… thanks again.
