Error couldn't find image check path?


Mac OS sierra, PsychoPy v 1.85.2.

Hi there,
I’m having trouble with my experiment and was wondering if anyone had an idea what might be going wrong! When I run my experiment, it runs for half of the loop and then it cuts out and I get the error message below. I have checked to make sure that the name of the stimuli and the image match. I can’t think what else I can do! Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

The name may match, but the path doesn’t. Please tell us the path to the image (select it in the Finder and type ⌘I to get info and copy the path. Do the same for your Builder. psyexp file.


Hi thanks for your help! Right okay, here’s a screen shot of the info for each folder, is this the right information you need?


i.e. the file M.bmp


Sorry I think this is the path?


Here’s a screenshot of the info


In case you haven’t found the error already, the filepaths are incorrect e.g.
psychopy attempts to find the image in /Users/betty/Desktop/PsychoPypositivevsnegativeIAPSsamescale2014/CItaskNegativeNEW_Zhimins_ITI_scale_not_modified_for_EC/M.bmp
when in fact the image is saved in

…I think
