Right. The button icon will be whatever size its source image is, so if 
you want to use it with a smaller button, scale the image in your stack, 
not the button.

You can set the lockloc of the image to true and set its size to 
something smaller without losing the original. You can always set it 
back to its original size later if you need to. You might get better 
clarity scaling it in a dedicated graphics program though, it depends on 
the image. LiveCode doesn't do a bad job with scaling.
