sounds like you are using a referenced image.

So the mac version of your app cannot find the path to that image and so
it does not appear :-(

If it is only one image, you could consider to import a copy into your 

In that case do it this way:

Menu: File: Import as control...: Image File...

Then a copy is in your stack and that image will show up all the time.

If you are using more than 1 image, it is more efficient to reference 

Drop a line if you need more info about referenced images and (very 
important when
building standalones) relative paths, so these images will be found and 
displayed in any case.

Au revoir.
