Am I missing something?

Or...just thought of this, are you putting the monster picture INTO the hero lab portfolio saved by RW? Maybe that is what I am doing wrong.
Aha, Josh! I just tried this and now it works great. Now I know why I was confused when you mentioned this in another forum post somewhere. You mentioned putting the pics into RW, I just though you were putting them INTO RW, not into the HL portfolio created for and saved by RW.

I see the light!

Now I just wish HL had the "paste image from clipboard" option like RW. Sigh. It is always something....

Not the picture in realm works. Create a hero lab snippet, click the create button and Hero Lab opens up. Add the monster and add a picture and then exit hero lab. Realm Works will prompt you to save and then from that point you can add the monster in using that hero lab snippet and the picture will work.

Just wait until the launch of the content market. I think the first thing many of us will do is add the pictures into the butt load of monsters that are coming.

And that's a good point about being able to paste pictures in... We should ask for that.

Why not try something similar to what FG does, they use alphabet images of the letter of the first character to be a place holder for the image / token.

That's something that could probably be parsed by the console when the object is placed on it.
