Hi, Kelly,

Sorry no one replied sooner.

One way to avoid the tiling is to follow these three steps:

(1) Use the "Open" button, rather than the "Background" button, when 
importing the graphic.  This will create a "SketchMorph" for the 
graphic, positioned at the top-left of the Squeak window just where 
you (presumably) want it.

(2) From the red halo menu of the SketchMorph you've just imported, 
choose "send to back" to place the picture behind all other objects 
in the project.

(3) In the SketchMorph's red halo menu, click on the checkbox labeled 
"be locked", to *lock* the picture into place and keep it from 
responding to the mouse.

This should have the desired effect.
