All graphic files used in the product are in
%install directory%\TASKE\webapps\images. Ensure any graphic files you replace have the same name as the original as well as the same pixel dimensions. If the image is of a different size it will be resized to the original graphic’s dimensions. This may change the aspect ratio of the new image causing it to appear flattened or stretched. Some items to note about the graphics:
- The lines across the top are achieved by repeating a the image
bkgd_lines_blue.gif. A simple way to remove these lines is to replace this graphic with a similarly sized transparent graphic.
- The TASKE product logo is used three times in the product; on the main page, the chat top area and the preferences. If you want to replace it, ensure you replace in all three locations.
