The Select Thumbnail screen appears.

       2.      In the File Path field, enter the path for where your picture is stored on your local hard disk or on a network server, or choose Browse to select the path.

You return to your object. The system has now added the uploaded picture to it.


The system displays the thumbnail in both the screen of your object and in the folder in which this object (subfolder, material, or document) is located.
