applying an image as texture to an object

hi, I need to apply an image -jpg- texture to suzanne, I used the image subpanel from F6, in the preview the texture is showed but is not reflected in suzanne, so my question is:

what am I missing to apply correctly the texture to suzanne?

regards

have you tried to render you image because you don’t always see your textures until they are renderd.

SHIFT+T if you want the 3D viewport to display textures. Note, if your normals aren’t correct you will see through your mesh. Fix that by tabbing into edit mode, selecting everything and hitting CTRL+N. SHIFT+T again will put you back into shaded view. (I speak for 2.49b)
