Hello, I am having trouble finding a way to add custom made symbols (probably a .png file) to a point feature class in ArcGIS Pro. Any advice?
Activate the symbology of your point layer:
Are there any specs on the .PNG file to consider? I'm importing the symbol but appears pixelated and looks too ugly on the map...
Hi Xander Bakker
I have done as directed above using a PNG file, but there is a quality loss - the symbol is blurry.
Should any specs be specified for the symbol?
I could do some testing (trail and error) to see if there is a "best" size to be used, but I think it is better to tag Kory Kramer who might be able to provide us some recommendations.
How have you set the Quality? Is it Draft as the default or have you adjusted that?

Any solution regarding the loss of quality (pixelated) of .png images?
Was that on the maps or the Wordpress pages linking to the maps?
I am using picture markers (PNG Images) for custom symbols in Pro Maps/Layouts.
the images are being distorted pretty bad inside Pro. pretty basic images also nothing crazy
is there a recommended config for this type of workflow?
Thanks for the tip as I found it useful for creating an railroad symbology for ArcGIS Online feature layers.
1) I used ESRI multi-part existing railroad symbology to fix my need for a railroad , brought it in to gimp, rotated it 90 degrees, saved as a .png24 with a transparent background.
2) I used your method above for a line symbology rather than points and it worked like a champ.
So far in testing other multi-part symbologies with the method above seems to work well.
Many thanks and Best Regards!
