UV image not rendering in final image

In blender I thought I would try using the UV editor on a simple project I’m working on. I can get the image to show up on the object before I render the scene but when I render the scene, the image disappears. An I doing something wrong. So far I have never been able to get the uv image editor to work. Also, I am using the internal render engine. I need all the help I can get on this one. Thanks :cool:

For the image texture to render, you need to apply a material to your mesh, then add a texture to that material. Change the texture type to Image/Movie and select your image. Change the Mapping from Generated to UV.
