Thanks for your reply - yeah I tried that too, but transparency doesn't work. Apparently jpegs can't utilise transparency, which I didn't know until the other day.
The icons I wanted to use seem to be showing up fine in a different skin - http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=57623&page=3 - albeit this is an old skin and as an indication of what genre the movie is rather than the Library>Genre icon, so thought it may be possible.
Just wasn't keen on the standard icons and they are too tall for the backgrounds I've put in and the look I'd prefer.
In the IncludesVariables.xml look for the line as in below that would occur nearabouts 3013.
That would be the culprit .jpg -- change to .png and ensure the path is the same where you kept the genre icons.
If I misunderstood something, please let me know.
Thanks for your help GK - the png icons now show up but unfortunately aren't transparent. The png file itself definitely has a transparent background but for some reason it isn't showing as transparent on the skin. Any ideas?
