Hello all...

I am trying to find some good literature and or recommendations on how to:

Scale a logo to a website... If I have a website and I want to create a logo I know what type of format I need to use...
But how do I scale it so I can add all the images to the logo and then scale it down to the website so it does not look like it shrank or even worse when it looks out of proportion with the rest of the content..

Thanks

Any graphic manipulation software will have options to scale your images. If you want it to remain crisp, you start with a large image (1024 X 768 or higher), and create a large logo with all of the parts and pieces that you want. Then you scale the entire thing down.

O okay that is awesome....


But how do I scale it down I usually save it to that size and then change the px after however that causes a shrink effect.

Thank-you

Sir :thumbsup:

Inside your image editor somewhere, there will be an option to resize the image.

Sencha IO offers a free "on the fly" scaling service, actually works very well! It is only in beta stage at the moment. It only scales down, and is made to be able to use the same image on multiple devices (desktop, tablet, phone) and have a nice crisp image

Check it out : Sencha IO

Nice but the link provided does not take me to their page.

Maybe they changed servers or something :busy:

If you are using an image editor to do this, and a 'resampling' option is available, that usually leads to a better looking result than 'resizing'.
