'Info' The cairo rendering mode (workarea or project output) (actually?) only read png external files.

You can setup the workarea mode by the setup dialog :

"The function we have to use is the set_source_pixbuf, since loading images in this way is slower we first create a new Cairo::Context containing the pixbuf and on the on_expose_event of the gtkmm widget we simply copy the image."
