In the previous version (1.8) of QGIS you could select to fill a polygon using a PNG or JPG image. This option seems to have gone from QGIS 1.9 Master. I can get it by selecting the "Old Symbology" button on the Style tab. That's OK but surely this option has not been deprecated (or has it)?
Can anybody tell me where the fill by image option has disappeared to because the only other option I appear to have is SVG fill (SVG is very nice, but I also want the flexibility of using a PNG or JPG is that is what I have to hand) - or perhaps the option only exists as the 'old symbology'. Also, does anybody know if it is intended to only allow filling polygons with SVG as opposed to PNG/JPG in the future?
