These are files to replace the generic images that show up in game when you use a custom text file but have no graphics for it. Normally the lovely Diedre shows up, but if your sick of seeing her, you can use these pics instead which I believe are more generic.

Before Installing remove/backup the files from your SMAC directory (for MAC they are in the DATA folder and the ADD-ON DATA folder if you have Alien Crossfire) with the same names as the one in the download so you can replace them if you wish/need to.
Copy the files you downloaded into your SMAC directory (for MAC they go in the DATA folder and the ADD-ON DATA folder if you have Alien Crossfire).
Your done!
