From my limited use, the main benefit I see is that it allows you to create alternate timings for select channels while leaving your main sequence page relatively clean. Let’s say you create a new sequence with timing of .10 seconds. But you find yourself needing finer resolution for certain parts of a song. By duplicating a channel on a different track, you can use the tapper wizard to add the additional timing to this track. There are a few threads in this forum detailing the use of tracks - try the search function for more info.
As far as re-sizing your image, try opening it up in Microsoft Paint. Click on the Image menu and select "Attributes'. Take note of the width and height. Cancel this and click on the 'Image' menu again and select 'Strectch and Skew'. Depending on the size of your original, enter a number around 35-50 in the Horizontal and Vertical Stretch section. As long as the image is smaller than your display on your system, it won't give you the error message stating it is too large. You can repeat the above process to see the attributes to make sure you have reduced it enough. When you are finished, click on 'File' then 'Save as' to save as a new version.

Weird...I tried to resize the image. Everytime I open it, it says the image is too large, BUT when I open it any way, the image is so small it doesn't take up but a small corner and then the animation is messed up. Do I need to redo the animation by starting with the pic and going from there instead of trying to incorporate a background to an existing animation.

What is the resolution on the image? You should see the size in Windows Explorer in the left-hand pane under details. Or open it in paint and look under the attributes menu.

That's much too large. You shoud reduce it to 25% of it's original size which should end up at 864 X 576. Follow my instructions in my first reply using Microsoft Paint and you should be fine. By the way, what is the resolution on you computer monitor?
