    When I use channel ability with unit/point target, the cursor is gone when on the map!
    (but on UI it comes back, it's hiding from me!)
    I'm pretty sure that it's because I've checked the "targeting image".
    (In options on Channel, of course...)

    Soo, does anyone knows how to change the targeting image for the spell?
    (Maybe using some image...)

    I don't have much experience with Channel, but that's the same symptom as when you set an area target spell's area of effect to 0. Rather base your ability on a point-target spell such as Carrion Swarm.
    If you want the area target circle, base it on Blizzard.

    If you want a targeting image, which is AoE display, you will need to set an area range to scale it.

    Thanks, rulerofiron. But the point-target, unit-target and AoE target can be used very well on Channel...
    (When you unchecked the "targeting image" options on Channel)

    The one I want to ask is, when I checked it, the cursor is gone when casting it! I think it needs an image...
    (And how to insert the image?)

    Targeting Image means making the spell AoE nothing to do with "images"

    Target Image displays an AoE image/ubersplat attached to the cursor above the terrain when picking a target for this ability. And I repeat, the graphic is scaled by the ability's area range. When factorized by 0, of course it won't be visible.

    The image displayed depends on the race (test for yourself whether it's the one of player, unit or ability). You can replace them in mpq or game interface. You cannot pick an individual one per ability though.

    The image depends on the race of the ability uses.
