Contributing logos to the splash screen

If you are a vendor of an extension for KNIME you may want to add a nice logo to KNIME's startup splash screen. Luckily, that is quite easy with Eclipse. First, you need a PNG file with 50x50 pixels. Smaller images are OK (but may look small next to other vendors logos) but they must not be bigger. Then you need to provide an extension to org.knime.product.splashExtension in one of your plugins. This is done the same way as adding new nodes to the plugin, via the Plugin MANIFEST editor. You can now add a new splashExtension and provide a unique ID, the logo file and a tooltip. After having saved everything, your logo should appear in the splash screen when KNIME starts up, just above the progress bar.
