Thank you for writing.
Unfortunately RadScheduler does not support custom images for appointments yet. However this is something that we will definitely implement for the upcoming Q1 2009 release.
Regarding the blinking / flashing appointments we will need more information about your case in order to consider such a feature. Could you give us an example of a user scenario?
