Making Hud/Vgui/Gui Textures

I can’t get it working! I’m drawing an image over the entire screen until the menu is closed, but all I see is the pink and black evil checkerboard.

How should I import my TGA file so that it would work in a derma image DImage or DImageButton with panel:SetImage( “hud/background” ) ??

or is there a better method to do this?

When I made a VMT file that uses the vtf, it removed the blur on the pink and black checkerboard, but the image still doesn’t show!
