This tutorial applies to all templates (versions 3.1.0 +) purchased on or after November 1, 2017. See the "Site header and logo setup (Old)" if you purchased prior to November 1, 2017.
Image Logo Size –
NOTE: We always recommend using an image logo over a text logo. Image logos are much more responsive on smaller screens and fit better. Our designs are coded to work best with image logos. This is why our designs include a free logo template.
Our templates allow you to use almost any logo size your want.
The best size for your custom logo to make it Retina Ready (not fuzzy on iPhones, etc.) is 2 times the height you want it to display.
i.e. If you want a logo that is 150px tall, use an image that is 300px tall.
Our template will restrict the height of the logo so it’s not too tall on the display.
How do I set up my site logo & header?
NOTE: For the Ashleigh Blogger Template we HIGHLY recommend you use an image logo rather than a text logo. The optimal image logo size is 270px by 80px.
