The PNG files for background images must meet the following requirements for proper

display on the Cisco IP Phone:

Full size image-320 pixels (width) X 212 pixels (height).

Thumbnail image-80 pixels (width) X 53 pixels (height).

Color palette-Includes up to 12-bit color (4096 colors). You can use more than 12-bit

color, but the phone will reduce the color palette to12-bit before displaying the image.

For best results, reduce the color palette of an image to 12-bit when you create a PNG

I had this problem before and it was down to not restarting the TFTP service.

It takes a while for the images to appear on the handsets after the service is restarted though.
