you should always specify an image size... avoid using % for an image
size, since NN4.x won't display the image...

instead, try to create an image with edges that drop off to flat
color (to match a background color), that blend with a background
image, that tile, or that can be moved around without requiring pixel-
perfect precision...

same goes for the design...
