Image formats used in BlackBerry applications

This article applies to the following:

  • BlackBerry® wireless devices based on Java™
  • BlackBerry Java Development Environment (JDE)



The BlackBerry devices support graphics in PNG format. Images in GIF or JPG (JPEG) format can also be added to application projects in the BlackBerry JDE. The BlackBerry JDE converts GIF or JPG images into PNG format automatically when it compiles a project. If an application accesses raw image data on the device, it retrieves PNG image data.
