As Art said, using OLE (File > Import > Object) is not a good idea. FM
has a PNG filter, so it can import the file natively (File > Import >
File). Is there some special reason why you're trying to import the
files as objects, or is that just due to a bit of confusion?
Also, you're a bit confused about FM's image handling. The "shows
previews" bit applies strictly to Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files.
Those files can be saved with a TIFF preview, and FM displays only that
preview. Other graphics files, including PNG, don't have previews, and
what you see in FM is the file.
