how to give the Url of image in 'CiscoIPPhoneImageFile'?

I'm trying to send a png file of size of 298*168 pixels to a Ip communicater version.

the definition for the CiscoIPPhoneImageFile is


<Title>Image Title goes here</Title>

<Prompt>Prompt text goes here</Prompt>

<LocationX>Horizontal position of graphic</LocationX>

<LocationY>Vertical position of graphic</LocationY>

<URL>Points to the PNG image</URL>


But the program is not working,may be a error of the URL ,

How should I give the location of my png file?

what does "Points to the PNG image" means?I tried with the URL to the image.

Re: how to give the Url of image in 'CiscoIPPhoneImageFile'?

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 file.

For more details, look here:
