    I am looking for someway to make a jpeg or a gif a dashboard widget.
    If someone could point me in a direction for this.
    What I am trying to have is when I bring up my dashboard it will show among the other widgets a map which right now is a jpeg or could be a gif.

    when on calls I get asked questions and the answer I get from the map, which I would like to have on the dashboard.

    seems simple enough but haven't found a way to do this.
    I know there are other ways to display an image but I would like this on the widget dashboard so I don't need other ways to bring up an image.

    thanks for any help.

    The way without installing anything additional would be to open the desired image in Safari (File >> Open File) and then create a webclip of it (File >> Open in Dashboard).
