Issue Details

I have produced graphics I wish to use as custom welcome graphic and banner on my LabVIEW application installer. When I build and run my installer however the images are much lower quality than the original images. Why?

Solution

For optimal results the following criteria must be met:

Customer Welcome Graphic

  • Must be a bitmap (BMP) file in the project.
  • The standard size for the BMP file is 578 x 383 pixels.

Customer Banner Graphic

  • Must be a bitmap (BMP) file in the project.
  • The standard size for the BMP file is 578 x 59 pixels.

Additional Information

If the bitmap files are not the specified pixel dimensions then they will be resized to fit them. Hence, editing the quality. Below shows the difference between having bitmap files not the specified dimension versus that which is exactly as stated above.
