We usually add shape files first if they have projection information. Then the image will be reprojected when added.

Thanks for your reply, well if the shape file which is created without any projection,  is it added with default projection 1984?  And I found that after i add a image to the map  i can control the image size and location with  the rasterbound, but i can't control the shape file with its extent! Is it the shape file's extent a const value? if not , how to set the value?
