Picturebox & ImageList

I have a picturebox that I want to swap image during hover, leave, enter.  I placed my images onto an ImageList set at 170x90 and colordepth32bit.  When the hove code excute, the image is distorted and doesnt display well.

code snippit:
private void OnMouseHover(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
//does not work - images distorted
pictureBoxOption1.Image = imageList.Images[1];

//works
pictureBoxOption1.Image =Image.FromFile("rollover.png");
}

I dont want to read from file at runtime.  How do I fix this?

thanks in advance

1) What is the size for the images indicated by the ImageList?

2) What is the SizeMode for the PictureBox?

i assume you are using net2, correct?
that is a known strange behaviour of the net2 imagelist.
try this:
setup a clean new imagelist with the size and the colordepth you need BEFORE you insert the images to it.

if that dont work, use a resource file instead.

in your projectpath, goto Properties. there is a resources.resx file.
doubleclick on it.
on the designer of that file, goto Add Resource->Add Existing File... .
choose the images you need.
after adding it, you got acces to that images with its name as property.
try:
yourappnamespace.Properties.Resources.YourImageName

the return type is bitmap.
