Creating Images for Tools

Recommended Posts

What's the secret to making images for tools?  The instructions say to make a 26x20 image, but it kicks out an error saying that it needs a png with a 2x image. 


26x20 seems really small.  What should it actually be?  Do you need a special png with 2 images?

Thanks.  I'm still having an issue.  I now have an image that is exactly 26x20 and anther that is 52x40.  When I try to load the first image I get a dialog box that the image must be 26x20.  Double checked the image.  It's 26x20. 2KB.  


Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

The images must also be 72dpi to be recognized as valid. Pixel dimensions alone isn't enough.
