Default How do I insert an image?

This has got to be a "no brainer" since it's so basic... I have a photo of myself that I want to "zombify." I found some cool meat and skull textures that I want to integrate. Presumably I'll insert the images onto layers and go from there. I'll be darned if I can see how to insert an image. I did a forum search and found discussions of inserted images, so I know it's possible... Also, I checked out the "Alien landscape" tutorial which seems to incorporate this technique. Ironically, the tutorial has the pictures PRE-inserted and doesn't show how they got there. Argh!!! Using "Import" doesn't do the trick... Why no 'Insert' menu??? Ahhh!!!
Thanks

Here is a very simple beginners tutorial on layers and copy and paste.

Awesome thank you guys for the fast replies! My problem was that I was trying to put them directly into the same file (as you do with DrawPlus). First I had to just open them, then I can copy and paste as a layer in another file... The Deform tool apparently turns the imported image into an "object" that can be manipulated. That would've had stumpted too. Both tips were in Bulldog's first video "Layers." Vshears, did you do that zombie image? It's very cool. Here's what I have so far.
The "skin" is a picture of leather from Google Images. lol. Thanks again

Hi I can take no credit for the zombie image, that and the tutorial where created by Sixwheels AKA James H who is absolute treasure trove of information on Serif Software in general and PhotoPlus in particular.
