Well you're pretty close in assuming it's the wrong file type. It's not a GIF
but rather it's a png. The guy that made the tutorial offered these images
with different tones that anyone could use. But they are png's and that isn't
working. I tried just another raw file and when I did the Sample Colorize
routine, in the sample section, my other raw file showed up like it should. So
now I need to hunt down some sample files I can use. I wonder why he would
have offered png files if they don't even work for the routine for which he
was trying to teach. Maybe there is something I missed in there.
