How to Displaying a Background Image on BI Mobile

First I watched this tutorial by the SAP:

http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-36210

I followed the steps and really struggled.  I tried including various images and none of them worked.  Then I noticed this little tidbit in the video:

As this screen shot shows, the image has to be less than 100K in size.  The images I was trying it with were larger and as a result they were not working.

To get this to work, I followed the steps in the tutorial.  As a test, I added the ASUG Annual Conference logo to a report.  In the BI Launchpad, I added the URL of the image to the keyword, under Properties.

So then I launch BI4.4 Mobile on my iPad 1 and success:

My image shows up in the background for the report.
