They have to be PNGs, but the transparency is what makes the images, otherwise they'll look like a white box.

Tab Icons are a bit different than the usual icons. I had a *heck* of a time figuring them out. There are issues with color 'channels' and things like that.

This tutorial got me through the mist...

I've been trying to figure out how to do it with 'Pixelmator' which is far less expensive than Photoshop, but so far I haven't...

Cheers!

ok thanks everyone...
i got it working but all i had to do is get the png into the image folder....
and then move the image folder to Xcode that way it can read it...

works great now...

about pixelmator , i would rather use photoshop... but if you cant try gimp, it is also free and all you have to do is save the png without background.... it should work for you then...

good luck, thanks and keep at it....
