No matter which Tech4Learning tool you are using, click the Folder button in the top right corner of the Library panel to open a dialog that will let you navigate your computer to find the images you have taken.
If the image is still on your camera, connect the camera to the computer and it should mount as a drive you can browse.
If you have saved files to a Google Drive, you can also navigate this cloud storage, provided you have mounted your Google Drive on your computer.
Once you choose Open, the file will be added to page or frame.

To add a folder to your Library panel, open the Program Preferences (Edit menu on Windows, and application (like Frames) menu on a Mac).
Click Library in the list. The Preferences dialog will show you options for the Library.
If you have a unique log in to your computer, you can store everything in your Pictures or Documents folder. Then, check the boxes for these folders in the User Media area to have them appear in the Library panel.
A word of caution here, if your My Documents folder is huge like mine, I would suggest connecting to the Pictures folder since it can take a while for the Library to read and display all of the data.
You can also choose to have the Library display a specific folder. Click the Add button in the Added Libraries area, navigate to the folder and open. Click OK to save the preferences.
You will see this folder at the top level of the Library panel.
