Well I finally got this image to import and view in preview mode by converting it to .pdf first. I don't know why the .jpg wouldn't preview. Strangely I also found that after I got the ,pdf one to preview in a new layout, I copied the resized .pdf from this new layout and pasted it into the layout with the same image in .jpg format and replaced the image already there and then tried to preview and it was still invisible. So maybe the .jpg was not my problem, although I did try many different layouts with that .jpg and never did get it to preview (maybe there is a size limit? or some other limit I crossed such as image height perhaps... although I guess that one is not right because the .pdf image I'm using is the same height.
