  1. @Blue: Thanks man,
    Images, you mean GUI contains images.
    You can try my way,Supposed it will work good, if images never show up, do this:
    1. in figure 3 >> add the library that contains the images to the large text box.

    If you talking about program Icon:
    1. download that program
    this will allow you to convert image to icon (change size)

    2. in Figure 3, browse to the image in second text field.
