Picture properties


A picture can be added to all icons (also bitmap icons). This can either be a png-image, bitmap or a metafile, and only png-images and bitmaps are rotatable. Pure bitmaps are not recommended since the size is larger than the other formats.The picture background is selected from the Edit definitions dialog.


If a picture previously has been uploaded, the user can view it in the Vector Icon Editor by checking the Pict box in the upper right corner and place and scale it from the Picture grid. A scale factor 0 means original size. The width is given in pixels at 100 % zoom.


The points are given relative to the icon center. x is the horizontal axis increasing from left to right, while y is the vertical axis increasing from top to bottom. The Frame points have to be set directly in the Frame grid.
