Photon backdrop: Image restrictions/requirements?

Are there any restrictions/requirements for the image one uses as the backdrop for Photon? I’m trying to use a 209kb jpg, but it won’t let me.

What’s the error message? Does it do it for all JPEGs?

You’re not running out of memory are you? Some jpegs take a huge amount to decompress. I have used lots of photo’s for backgrounds with file sizes in the megabytes, so there is no restriction on the size that I have found.


Well, I resized the image and it worked. Go figure. Thanks!

Does anyone know the dimensions for the WorldView area of the desktop? I’d like to put a custom image there as well.
