For optimum image quality, please follow the specifications below. Please note that you may upload images of any dimension & size (below 2 MB), and then resize or center them in the Builder. However, the image editor upon upload may yield a blurry or distorted photo if the dimensions are too far off from the specifications detailed below.
Guide Branding Images

Header Images in a Schedule Session
The header image for a schedule session will appear at the top of the screen, above the session name, date, times, location, and description/details.
The ideal size is 640px wide, 240 px tall. Please upload .jpg or .png file.
Map image files (.jpg or .png) should be larger than 1000px wide, 1000px tall. We recommend map images to be smaller than 2000px wide, 2000px tall, however.
This is to reduce file size. A smaller guide will take less time for users to download, and it will update faster when attendees use your guide throughout your event.

These banners appear at the bottom of the drawer navigation menu.
The ideal image size is 600px wide, 110px tall. Please upload a .png or .jpg file.
