So, is there anyone that has had some success creating a Splash Screen with any of the above mentioned programs? And, if so, could you list the specific properties of that image so I could attempt to duplicate that with the image I am trying to send?

Thank you.
I just fiddled a bit in Windows...... It's been awhile . A combination of Paint and the resizing powertoy will get the right dimensions (480x320) and color depth (256) but I can't find a way to alter the resolution with them. The resolution must also be changed to 96 dpi. There are a bunch of online image converters, maybe worth a try. I originally used a free version of ACDsee to do this but as with most of the original Windows "freeware", it isn't anymore. HTH.


This might help.
