Hi Ad.
I've seen a similar issue using RoboHelp.

If I save a png in Paint and insert it into html files using RoboHelp then
RoboHelp crashes.

If I save a png in Paint Shop Pro and insert it into RoboHelp, RoboHelp displays
the image.

Therefore it might be worth trying to save your pngs in another application.

Hope this helps.
