Interlaced .png images will be smoother when zooming or scrolling I would imagine, and also support transparency better than non-interlaced. By that I mean layers of non-interlaced images over top of each other will cause jittery images when moving around the screen where as interlaced ones will not, but that is all subjective to what native resolution you are running the app at as well. You should probably use non-interlaced images unless you see performance issues.
And as far as I can tell, you can use the built-in images as icons in the Program Files\\Microsoft Visual Studio x.x\\Common7\\VS2010ImageLibrary\\1033\\ folder in your app without restriction.Edited by PhillyOverclocker - 8/1/11 at 12:36pm
