adding images to preview material types

Post by Aussie »

I would like to add several timber species to the preview list... I know how to add images, my question is what image size and resolution will work well for these previews.

Thanks
Ron

I used Corel Paint to check the size. Most of them are around 1.6" X 1.6" at 300 dpi. There are some slight variances but it doesn't seem to matter.

I have a file with 200+ wood species if you want it. In both horizontal and vertical. With unfinished, and sealed versions of many of them.
