Image size

Logo images

It is recommended that you use logo images that are 32x32 pixels. Larger images are shrunk to 32x32 and smaller images are stretched to 32x32, which could distort the image.

Background images

While there is no size limit for background images, for best results, it is recommended that you use images that are approximately 800x500 pixels. The background image is placed in the center (horizontal and vertical) of the log on page. To help make the text on the log on page easy to read, the center of the background image should be light in color.

Image file types

The following image file types can be used to replace the default background and web site logo:

  • Bitmap( *.bmp, *.dib, *.rle)

  • GIF( *.gif)

  • PNG( *.png)

  • JPG (*.jpg)
