Custom UI Ribbon Word 2010

I am trying to define my own images for a custom ribbon in 2010.  Doing this for buttons is easy but I have hit a problem when the size of the Word window is reduced.  If each Group is set to autoscale then as the window gets smaller the buttons get smaller until a default image for the Group is shown (and ultimately the entire ribbon is hidden).  The default image for a Group is plain with a circle in the middle.  How do I use my own images for each custom Group I have?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply JackieMan but I don't think that article is relevent.  My ribbon is autoScaling fine its the image of the rescaled group of buttons that I would like to change.

Managed to sort this myself.  Didn't realise that image="imagename" can be used with a Group in ribbon xml file.  Got confused by searching for a solution before trying it myself first.  Now the chosen image is displayed when the Window gets too small to show the buttons in a Group.

Accepted my own solution.
