Problem Reg Icons..Urgent help needed..
I've been asked to create icons for my product. I've created these icons using Icon workshop in different sizes like 16x16, 32x32 and 48x48.
Those are fine and i've submitted the same to the concerned developer. When the developer tried to attach the icon, it is displaying an error message saying "Invalid Picture".
Now, i don't know how to go about this...Can anyone help me?
Usha, I am surprised with query like this as developers are expected to check issues like file type compatibility. For icons, sometimes even size of file matters a lot so make sure that’s also taken care off. HTH
Check if the following things have caused the error:
If the application doesn’t support the given file format of an image. For example, the application is capable of supporting only .gif or .jpg but not .png.
Ask your developer to verify if the path for referring/linking the icons is correctly specified in the code.
Hi Rajeev & Srip
Thank you for helping me in this regard. I've got the solution. The problem was, those icons i've created Icon workshop meets the size requirement but it is in RGB/A format.
Later my Developer informed me, for a VB Project, 24 bit color depth format is required but not the RGB/A format. I was supposed to create the icons for a VB project in 16X16 size - 256 colors.
I'd selected the Image format as 16X16 - 256 colors in Icon workshop and created the icons. Now they are working fine.
Even though i got the solution for my problem, i didn't yet understand the concept of 24 bit, 32 bit color depth etc., I understood about the icon sizes (16x16, 32x32 etc).
Can anyone please throw some light as to what is RGB/A, 256 colors, 24 bit, etc., and how does it affect the output?
