How to replace the logo image in the Milkyway template1.Creating the logo
In this guide, we will be replacing the Joomla! logo by our own custom logo. Let's start by creating thecustom logo. We will use the free program the GIMP (www.gimp.org
) to do this, so do download andinstall it, if you haven't already.Open the GIMP, and click on file > new. Choose 298 pixels for the width of the image, and 75 for theheight. Also, expand the advanced options by clicking on the little 'plus' left of it. Change “fill withoption” to transparency.. Now a new window containing the transparent image will open up. The first thing we will do is addingsome text. Select the text tool in the GIMP's main window. Now click in the left upper corner of your image window, and type in your logo's text in the dialogue box, and close it. Now double click the text-tool, and the text tool's properties dialogue will open up. Change the size to an appropriate value, andalso change the font and text colour if you like, but this is not really necessary.You might want to adjust the position of the text, using the move tool. Note: You can see the image change while you adjust the text's size. If you don't see anything happen,click on the text and try again.
Create new image
Note: If you use the
template, you should set width to 300px and height to 97px.If you use another template, you can check yourself: surf to your site, rightclick on the logo you wantto replace, and select properties. There you can see the width and height.
