There are no images in this email, but I assume you are referring to the fact that the QML files don't show up in your project tree initially, while the generated qrc file does. This is in my opinion a combination of two bugs: One in Qt (resources.prf "steals" the source file so it can't be shown directly by Qt Creator), and one in Qt Creator (the generated qrc file should not be shown unless "Hide generated files" is unchecked. We have patches for both on gerrit.
