    It seems that you have done the right changes but you must have done them wrong

    What do you mean by distorted? A screenshot would help clarifying the problem.

    Hi,

    1/ On 2nd edition you are using the bitmap icons, so what you put into AIF file is displayed on the screen, the phone does not scale the bitmap at all.

    2/ On the 3rd edition the AIF is not used longer. The application icon should be in the SVG vector format, it could be also bitmap (raster) format, but it will never look as nice as the pure vector format. So what you need is Adobe Illustrator or Inscape to redraw you icon.

    Note that on UIQ3.1 are still used bitmap icons, even it is Symbian OS9.1

    Hi,

    AAAhhaaa - just use bmp from Windows paintbrush to save 24bit format and then specify the color depth properly in your mmp.

    Hi,

    sorry about previous post about the size - I was thinking that the problem is that only "part" of the icon is displayed...

    As I have said if you use Windows paintbrush and you will save the icon in the 24bit and the mask as monochrome bitmap and you will put into mmp something like this:


    AIF MyApp.aif ..\aif MyApp.rss c24 context_pane_icon.bmp context_pane_icon_mask.bmp list_icon.bmp list_icon_mask.bmp

    you will have proper colors.
