Tuesday, June 10, 2008 4:54 PMHow best to add a background design document created with Expression Design, and add it to an exisiting Visual Studio 2008 web application. I want to add it as a Background Picture for an .aspx page, and .design extension does not seem to be recognized.
Thanks in advance!

no expert here but I would suggest you export as png or jpg and then add it to your resources.

Barkest is correct. Background images for ASP.NET pages are the same format as those in HTML pages - GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, etc. The .design file format is only recognized by Expression Design.
