I tested this starting from "emacs -nw":

  (setq x (create-image "c:/my-image.jpg"))
  (setq s (image-size x t))

create-image works, but image-size fails.with "Non-W32 frame used".

It looks like the reason is that internally images are in some way
bound to frames. I do not know the reason for this, but you can see it
in the code of `image-size'.

Maybe it is a bug. Please submit a bug report.
