Hi Ted,
If you have a photo   and you want it to appear in your switchboard then there is no need to use animator.

From the TC menu open the accessories tab.
Locate the Image icon and click on it.
Move the mouse and the arrow pointer will turn into a spanner when you hover over the switchboard.
In the location you would like to insert your photo click and the spanner will turn into a box.
Right click on the box and click properties
A window will open up  - select browse and locate your file in your photos folder - the default option is BMP format but you can select GIF or JPEG files
You can then select the pixel size  when ready hit the OK button
Photo will be inserted with its top left hand corner in the box you selected
Photo location can be dragged to suit your preferences.

Hi Dave
 Thank you for your reply . I have managed to move the
 track diagram into the switchboard , as you instructed , but ,
 Now I want to use the track diagram as a switchboard .
 as it is a photo , I can not activate the photo . I have tried to
 delete each track and then redraw it with a new track  , but this
 do's not work either .
 Any further ideas would be most welcome .
 Regards Ted

I would be surprised if you can do that Ted. The switch board track is built up from elements....track,turnouts,blocks etc......it is the very heart of Train Controller. Out of interest why do you need to use a photo as the switchboard?
Regards

John

 Hi John
 Thank you for your reply .
 I have , over time collected parts of track
layouts on another computer .  These I have incorporated
 with alterations into what I would like as my track layout .
 Really , I was just being lazy , There is between 150 and 200
meters of track all told on four different levels . Which I will find difficult
 to draw .
 Now I will try to draw each level on separate switchboards , and see how
I go
 Thanks again John .
 Regards Ted

That should work.......have you read upon connectors? You need to enter them to connect switchboards.
Regards

John

Hi John
 Thank you for your prompt reply
 I will read up on connectors .
 Since upgrading from controller 8 to 9 ,
 I have been concentrating on converting
 my workshop ,into my new train room .
So I have been negligent in properly reading up on
 the differences between the two .
( see relocation )
 Thanks again .
 Regards Ted .
