Sorry, I was not clear enough... In Designer, you just build resources,
including the images you need. Then, you use the images from the
resources, instead of the files, in your widgets.

Then, use pyrcc4 to compile these resources (.qrc) as a python module

Finally, in your code, just use:

from myResources import qInitResources, qCleanupResources
# Init
# Code
# Cleanup

Hope this helps.
