Texture mapping not succeed

I am trying to put the attached JPG file as a texture on the upper part of the ball in the attached Rhino 5 file. No success … It is all the time appears like a black surface. Any other picture works fine. How should I do that ?

Hi Rachel - this is a CMYK image - it needs to be RGB for Rhino, currently.
My guess is you’ll probably want to apply it with planar mapping from the top, not UV mapping. I do not have a good way right now to convert this image, apparently - the colors go ‘dead’ if I just save it to an rgb format.

OK, this is not bad -


OK OK OK… So now I understand…
Actually I build it in Illustrator, so it is not a problem for me to build it as an RGB file.
I will try it out and let you know the result…
Thank you very much
