Why can't I go

Pic = PhotoImage(file = "./lp.jpg")


Are JPEGs not popular enough yet, or am I missing something? This is one of the craziest restrictions to Tkinter I can think of. I wish I knew how to fix it, but I just ain't smart enough.

No, I don't want to use PIL. I'd like to make imbedded help that is just simple text-picture-text-picture, instead of just text. Yes, the pictures could be PNGs, but, again, are JPEGs just not popular enough, or is it a licensing thing of some sort?
