Re: Which image formats to use with ribbon buttons?

Hi

you are making a futile point!

Access already supports png and the transparency involved in png!

To offer advice, you have to think on what the user doesn't have. A bit like me advising someone-

"to get to London really fast, just hop into a ferarri and put your foot down"

not everyone has a ferarri but it will definately get you there fast!

the point is, most people don't have Photoshop so a solution should be offered that maybe doesn't include this like-

"you could use Gimp, or Paint net which are both free".

Access doesn't support png in the standard buttons if this is your reference but as the user was specifically talking about ribbon images,
this IS supported using png files without the use of activeX.
