Hi 96percent,

There are several ways to add your image in Art Text document. For example, you can drag and drop an image onto the canvas, or onto the layer's icon. The results can be different.

Try to drag and drop your image onto the canvas.

The Stroke tool can outline vector shapes. You should use a PDF file with letters in vector format. When you import a raster image (GIF, TIFF, PNG or JPEG), this tool outlines the whole image.
