libpng error: Not a PNG file Error Showing In Android Studio

I just Imported a project from

Eclipe to Android Studio
. Just a plain and simple project. But the project folder is showing one error .

May I know what is the correct way to achieve my objective? I am new in Android-studio .Does any guys meet this issue?Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is

Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDebugResources'.
> Error: Failed to run command:
/home/amiya/android-studio/sdk/build-tools/android-4.4.2/aapt s -i /home/amiya/vola/app/src/main/res/drawable-mdpi/call.png -o /home/amiya/vola/app/build/res/all/debug/drawable-mdpi/call.png
Error Code:
libpng error: Not a PNG file

Here is my

apply plugin: 'android'

android {

compileSdkVersion 19
buildToolsVersion "19.0.3"

defaultConfig {
minSdkVersion 17
targetSdkVersion 19

buildTypes {
release {
runProguard false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.txt'


dependencies {
compile ''
compile ''
compile ''
compile files('libs/google-play-services.jar')
compile files('libs/livesdk.jar')

I am not using this file anywhere in my project with that name !! There are many other png files in my project though.

Answer Source

Took below steps that solved my problem:

  1. Cut-paste the image on my desktop.

  2. Opened it in an editor saved it as png. without renaming the file name.

  3. Copy-pasted the .png image into the drawable folder.

Now , You can use cruncherEnabled

Returns true if the PNGs should be crunched, false otherwise.

 cruncherEnabled = false

It helped me .Try this way ,I guess it will work .
