I am trying to load several JPEG files into the Apollo catalog that have no georeference points. Based on the tutorial on loading business data, it would seem that if I could generate a .gim file, it would load along with the JPEG and provide a reference point. At least it did that with the fire hydrants.
I have attached a .gim file called image1.jpg.gim that is alone in a directory with image1.jpg. When I try to crawl the directory, nothing happens. I suspect (hope) that the problem is that there's a syntax problem in the .gim file. I've also tried changing the jpg references in the .gim to txt and the JPEG to txt, and it still doesn't load. [Please note that because this board doesn't like files with extensions .jpg.gim, I've called it .gif. However, what I tried to load is .jpg.gim]
Can anybody tell me  why the combined image1.jpg and image1.jpg.gim won't load and  what I have to do to the .gim file to make it work?

I cant see your attachments, but I hope this helps.
I just did a quick test using a non georeferenced jpg (DSC_0182.jpg) and a gim file (DSC_0182.jpg.gim) and it worked for me.
Here is my Gim file contents
