Having trouble with your logo?  A couple of tips:

  • When in doubt, send a link to this page to the person who designed your website / logo. Ask them to produce an image file that meets these standards.  If they have your original logo, it should be relatively easy (and cheap.)
  • You always have the option to use the Classic view if you’re having difficulty with the logo or don’t want the color palette defined. Choose Classic at the top of the window near the download PDF button.

Size Images for Success

The presentation slide is optimized to show common logo dimensions - usually low rectangular shapes.  You'll see the best results if your logo dimensions are 4.5:1.  For example:

logo dimensions

To find the dimensions of an image that is stored on your computer:

  1. Open the file where the image is saved.
  2. Place your cursor over the image icon, and right-click if you are using a PC or Ctrl-click if you are using a Mac.
  3. Choose Properties.
  4. Click the Details tab.
  5. Scroll down to the Image section to view the image dimensions.

File Sizes

Images need to be less than 10 MB. Some image editors have an option to "Save for Web & Devices" or to "Optimize" the image for you. If you use the option, make sure you choose a resolution that shrinks the image's file size to less than 10 MB and don't forget to flatten any layers when you save the final image.

Improve Image Quality

To ensure your logo prints clearly, use a high-quality rendering of the file.  Usually you will want 300 DPI (dots per inch) or a resolution of 640x140 pixels.
