I've been using Stencyl since the beta.  Made several games and I've never once gotten any image block to work.  I'm told they're great, really efficient and I've tried.  I try to incorporate them, but it always results in error messages and annoyance.   I keep rereading the Stencylpedia article and the comments, but it is very light when compared to the topic.   It seems like a subject that should have many pages dedicated to it, but there's no real walk-through and very few images(ironically). 

  I know I'm not the only one who finds the Image system too complex.  I think what's needed is a Video Tutorial, possibly a series of them.  It seems like a nice feature and I think it'd be great to have a good learning tool to access it.

I've made a few stencyl tutorial videos so far. I'll get to make one on images eventually, but it might take some time as I have other priorities.

That is my own stuff though, not affiliated with Stencyl.

Even an explanation of the bare bone basics would be invaluable.  As I said I've only ever gotten error messages kicked back when I try to do anything with the image blocks.  Something as simple as a picture of a behavior that works would go a long way. 

Oddly the only code blocks they show on the Image Stencylpedia page don't do anything.  I'm not sure if their from an old version or their just pieces of a greater whole but when I recreated them in my own game, it wouldn't test anymore.
