Picture command is failing 2/3rds of the time

I cant figure out Picture in R6. 2/3rds (or more) of the time I use picture, either by dragging in an image or using the command" Picture" I just get a self illuminated plane with no image, even though it shows the image in the file path correctly in the textures portion of the properties pallet.

It is driving me absolutely crazy!

Picture_test.3dm (63.5 KB)

It seems Like I have to go in, un-click Use Alpha Channel and click Use Color Mask and have that color mask be black.

Why is this not the default setting for Picture?

Hello - it looks like you’re saving the files without the textures - can you SaveAs and include textures?
