first of all i've set my splshscreen, logo, wide logo etc (.png file) to my metro app project, and it is working perfectly.

but now i want add an image to my form/page within image control. but the 'source' property of the image control is not showing my newly added image.

Even the solution explorer is showing that image. i refreshed the solution explorer and tried even restarting the visual studio but no luck.

To see my image in solution explorer, i had to enable the 'show all files' option, but still it is not recognizing my image as an image that i added previously.

thanks in advance...... pls help...

Just wondering: id the PNG in RGB or CMYK format? Can you include the PNG in the project? And what happens when you try to open the PNG file in Photo viewer?
