Image list icons looks bad

Hi,

When ever I use image lists in a tree view the image list is behaving
inconsistent. When I add images they first look good and clean, after I have
close and open the code in the IDE the icons have this blue shadow on them
and they look really bad. I can then remove the icons and add them again and
for some reason they look good but only until I add new icons to the same
image list.

Another thing I noticed is that when I add the icon or image it's a PNG
format but after I close and open the image list editor they get changed into
"MemoryBmp"

Has anyone seen this before?

Thanks

Found the solutions to my problem: Since .NET does not handle .PNG image
formats it will make the images used in my image list "MemoryBMP" this format
is not very stable and randomly seems to look bad. The solution is to convert
your .PNG images to .BMP and add them to your image list.
