Help with LED matrix with 1017 decade counter

So I build a led matrix with a 1017 decade counter according to this instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/810-LED-Matrix-with-4017/

It all works but I want the matrix to just display one image, so no scrolling thought different images. Could anyone help me out with that?

As of the application, it will be used in different if statements. so if (x) then display image a; else if(y) then display image b; That and then for a lot of if statements.

Thanks!

Make sure that you use 4017 chips, not 1017.

Please show your sketch, and describe what it should do and really does.
