Images & Logos

We want your finished products to look amazing, and a big part of that is your images and logo. Take a quick peek at our tips below to ensure they are the best they can be!

IMAGE SIZE

We recommend using high resolution images. The “Resolution” or “Image DPI” should be at least 240 (or higher). Each image placeholder will tell you if your image is too small once you add it.

Not sure if your image has a high enough resolution? Follow these steps to check the size of your image:

On a MAC:
     1) Right-click on the image file in your browser, then choose Open With > Preview.
     2) Click Tools > Adjust Size.

 

On a PC:
     1) Right-click on the image file in your browser; then select "Properties."
     2) Click on the tab "Details" in the image properties window and you’ll be able to see the DPI.



MOBILE IMAGES

Use the highest resolution possible when pulling from your phone. This size should work on image holders up to about 3 inches.

*Don’t worry, if you’re still not sure if your image is big enough, each placeholder will tell you if your image is too small after you add it. Whew!

LOGOS

We recommend using a .PNG logo with a transparent background. If you don’t have one, and you hired someone for your logo, we recommend asking them to make one for you.

Not sure how to save your logo as a PNG file? Follow these steps (in Photoshop):

    1) Open your logo .PSD file in Photoshop.
   2) Turn the “Background” layer off (by deselecting the “eye” to the left of the layer name) so that it will be transparent. This gives you the ability to place your logo on top of an image and have the image show through.

 

     3) Choose “Save As”, then choose “PNG” as your format.

It’s also a good idea to have a few different variations of your logo, such as a light version and dark version, to work with different backgrounds. In the example below, we’ve added a white version of the logo to a dark image:

 

You can use JPEG logos, but we don’t recommend using them on anything that does not have a white background. In the image below, the logo is a JPEG instead of a PNG, so we aren’t able to have a transparent background.
