I already thought so ;)  I got to this code after various suggestions 
by other people, seems some of those suggestions weren't *that* good.

But, when I do something like that:


I get an "Attribute Error: Convert".

When I try putting it in quotation marks ('self.image1' or just 
'image1') he says something like "File or Directory not found"; when 
I just use (image1,50...), I get a Name Error (I guess it's quite 
the same as the 'not found' one..).

How do I do that? I tried this:


and got the error message

Error Type: AttributeError
Error Value: read

Thanks for any further help,
