Unable to add image controls when compiling as Web Dynpro


We have EP7.0 SP13 with corresponding Visual Composer SP13 (Yes, we're way behind on our Support Packs but won't have a chance to upgrade for another few months).

I'm trying to add an image column to a table however, when I set the Runtime option in the Tools->Options->Compiler settings to "Web Dynpro", I don't have the option to add an image control. When I change the Compiler option to "Flash" the image control is available. Does anyone know why this is occurring?

A couple of extra points to note (if it helps...):

I tried adding the image column while the Compiler was set to Flash and then changed the Compiler back to Web Dynpro. The column still exists in the table but the Control Type on the Control Properties->General tab is set to "6" rather than "Image" (strange!) and when I deploy and run the app as Web Dynpro the column is empty and just shaded as if it is disabled.

When I deploy the app as Flash the image column works fine!

Thanks for your help!
