    Not to sure if this will help - but these 3 posts may help solve your problem

    These seem to point to problems with palettes colours.

    What type of file format, No of colours etc are you saving the graphics in

    Have you tried loading in one of the original DSision icons (to get size & colours), modifying that & saving (under a different name). Then trying it out to see if you get the same problem ?

    If doing this & you find that you are still getting the same problem - then it could be the program you are using to make your graphics is not saving in quite the right format

    If I understand right

    > You are using a DSi Themed Icon e.g "DSision\themes\DSi\custom\GBA.bmp" & loading it into 'Paint'
    > You are using a different picture (I'm guessing this has already been scaled down to a 64px x 64px x 256 Colours graphic)
    > I'm guessing you are pasting into paint using 'Edit' > 'Paste From' from the menu bar
    Once done - the new graphic turns black & white

    If so - I've tried it myself with different graphics & although I have seen a slight colour change it's not to black & white - I'm guessing that the 'pasted' graphic colour pallette is being changed to that of the DSi Icon colours & for some reason that's what 's making it black/white

    Is there any chance you can upload to the GBAtemp Picture Upload Service the pictures you are trying to merge together & then post the links back here so that I can try have a look & see if I can repeat the fault - ta

    No Probs - glad you've figured out a way around it
