 A FAQ from our Paradox FAQ Page



Does Paradox for Windows support .PNG image files?


Yes, Paradox 10 and 11 support .PNG graphics. For example, you can insert a .PNG using Edit | Paste From. However, Paradox 9 and earlier do not.

Note: All images stored in a Graphic field in Paradox tables are stored as uncompressed BMP images. This FAQ is about Paradox for Windows' ability to paste or import .PNG images into the .BMP formatted Graphic field type. For earlier versions of Paradox, you have to first convert the image.
