  • Are you getting an error, or is it just not displaying? What image type are you trying to use? What size is it? Can you see the image if you hover over it in the Solution Explorer?

  •  It's jpg image, and size is not 150 x 150, then I convert it to png, and resize to 150 x 150, still got error. I rebuild this image, use png format, and 150 x 150 pixel,  it's work now. Looks like not all image file can be used as logo.

  • So it was a file format problem? Glad you got it fixed...

  • But I don't know what kind of file format is not fit for logo.

  • AFAIK, it needs to be a png or jpg, but all I know about the subject is what it says here

    And I remember reading some place that display failures were most often the result of encoding problems, but I can't find that now.

  • Correct Rebecca!

    Tile images must have dimensions less than or equal to 800x800 pixels, have a file size of less than or equal to 150 KB, and be of type .png, .jpg, or .jpeg. There are no bit-depth or color requirements for an image as long as it meets the other requirements.

    Frank, there must have been some weird headers or something in your image if it met all this criteria and failed to display.  I am glad you were able to workaround the issue!

  • Jeff,

    It's glad to get your answer, but if VS11 can auto convert image format it would be nice.
