putting a picture in a patch, need a quick hand

June 2, 2010 | 8:14 pm

hey,

just finishing off a patch and would like to put a picture into it.
is there a simple way of doing this??

have tried pictctrl and an image but nothing comes up.

could someone please let me know how to do this.

also how do you draw shapes and colours to go behind controls?

thank you!

it sais it can’t find the image selected, although it is in the right format (png) does anybody know whats wrong with it?
it is in the same folder as the max patch itself

thank you

loadbang on a message box with [read yourimage.png] then a fpic object.
It should work correctly.

another way to do this is to open you pic with aperçu (if you’re on a mac) or maybe mspaint :)
then select all / copy
go back to max and edit->paste picture
