[aida] displaying photos

Hi Janko,

As you suggested, I tried several variations like:
e addImage: '/photos/pap.jpg' and
e addImage: '\photos\pap.jpg' and
e addImage: 'photos\pap.jpg'

I also moved pap.jpg to the home directory so I can do this: e addImage:
'pap.jpg'
again, I tried with '\' and '/'
and nothing seems to be working.

This is what I have on:
defaultHomeDirectory
    "where the image started, but depending on Unix or Win style"
    ^(SpEnvironment onWindows ifTrue: ['.\'] ifFalse: ['./'])

Thanks,

Ching
