    Hi Heshantha,

    So this is a workaround I've used in earlier versions of sw (now you can just change the file type on your drop down)

    1. Add one of the 2d appearances to the geometry you need your image added to (they have 2d at the end of their names)
    2. Edit that appearance and switch the tab at the top of the appearance editor from basic to advanced
    3.Expand the 'image' header and browse to your file (will accept most image types).
    4. Map as per normal
