I have a form with a ToolStrip with a number of  ToolStripButtons.  For a button that I just added, when I hover over it, the image takes on a different "background" color than the text area of the button.  For a button that was already on the toolstrip, this does not occur.  See two image.     Can anyone tell me why my new button does this, and how I can correct?

button good
button bad

The image of the Clone button has a transparent background. The image of the Make Phone Call button does not.

If you look carefully in the first screenshot you can even see that the phone icon is fully rectangular. There is a slight difference in color at the bottom of the rectangle.

ah, ok.   I changed the size of that phone icon in MSPaint.   It probably originally was also transparent , but that was lost change I did the change.  I think I've seen that happen before.

Yeah, MSPaint isn't very good at image editing. If you need something free that does a nice job look at GIMP. It takes a little while to get the hang of it but it has many of the really useful features of Photoshop and it's free!

If all you need to do is resize images and preserve transparency it does a great job of that.
