[New-bugs-announce] [issue13554] Tkinter doesn't use higher resolution app icon

New submission from th9 <rei4dan at gmail.com>:

48x48 icons in Gnome3 show up blurry, but giving larger resolution (128 or 256) icon to Tkinter doesn't improve its appearance at all in the panel or Alt+Tab menu.

I'm using 'photoimage' to get color icon. Giving two resolution icons in whatever order doesn't change anything - get blurry icon.

Attached example script. It expects two PNG pictures (48x48 and 256x256) in the CWD and uses PIL to load them.
