uploading GIF file for screen

Hi. I need to upload a GIF file into SAP to display on a custom screen. How do I do this? We're on R/3 4.6C. I tried to create a new object in the web repository (through t-code SMW0), since I've been able to display other GIF files from there on my screen; but I keep getting an error. The error is "No MIME type assigned to object" (followed by my file name). If I go to Settings --> Maintain MIME types, the only one that shows up is text/html. Do I need to upload through some other transaction instead? Or am I missing a step somewhere when I try to create my object in the repository?

Another possible solution: I was able to upload a BMP file through SAPscript graphics management, but I don't know how to reference those graphics files in my screen code.

Transaction OAER can be used to create PICTURES.

Run transaction OAER with class name = PICTURES, Class type = OT, and Object key with whatever name you want to create. In the next screen, right clicking on screen and import.
