Images from Implementing Designs for iPhone not Importing

Hey guys, I'm starting the above named project, I'v downloaded the images in to a folder, and I'm trying to add them to the Xcode project. Even if I try to drag them directly in to images.xcassets only some of the images will import: AppIcon, Default, icon_image, icon_video, LaunchImage, and loginBackground import fine. I'v tried several different ways to get the rest of them in my project, it creates the name for the icons in the left column, but the actual images in the right window are blank. I can not drag them on their placeholders in the right window. I don't know if it's because I'm on Xcode 5.0.2 and something changed, or something else. BTW I created the Ribbit project for iOS 7 in Xcode 5, so this is not an upgrade. Any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Best

Hi Rycardo,

Some of the images are white with transparent backgrounds, like icon_x for example. If you right-click on them and select "Open in External Editor" you should be able to open them in Preview or something else to confirm if they are there or not. Hopefully that's all it is!

Of course! I should have realised that white on white won't show. I had even opened in my graphics app to see they are white and transparent. Now don't I feel silly. Thanks for your help Ben.
