 Hello everyone! I am still learning about Wolfram Mathematica, and I have still have not yet found out if I can generate an image from my photos collection in File Explorer onto Wolfram. If anyone knows how, then any help would be appreciated. And if I cant do it, then please tell me so.Best regards,-Eleazar

 If you want to import a picture into a notebook its quite easily done. Use the Insert menu item:
 If you want to handle many pictures, it is useful to have a SystemDialog helping you. I do it this way: First I define a start directory once: startdirectory = "\\\\Whisper\\c\\Users\\ingol\\OneDrive\\Foton"; Then I open a file window, where I can choose a number of images: filelist = Flatten[{SystemDialogInput["FileOpen", startdirectory]}]; startdirectory = FileNameDrop[filelist[[1]]] <> "\\"; Thus I obtain a list of pictures, and if I open the file window again, it will open with the last directory used.
