Hi Hernando,
I'm guessing that you also need to change the top setting in the Background preferences:

Background method: image

I hope this helps,

I am using  the background settings dialogue in preferences  and  after loading the image it does appear in the  little icon in the dialogue box  but not on the main chimera window.  Do I need to do something else?  The image I am trying to place is in jpeg format and I am using Chimera version 1.6
