If you moved an image file from one folder to another while cleaning up your files, don’t worry.  Your work isn’t lost.  The software just doesn’t know where to look for your image.  Remember that when you saved your file as a .anme file, you stored certain information with it, like where to look on your computer for the image contained in your file.  You just need to go in and tell it where the new location is.  Follow the steps below.
