Exercise 3-3: Uploading your own Custom Logo: (optional)
you can upload your own graphic logo to use in place of, or in addition to, the "Website Name" text logo
Before you upload your logo, please jump down to the 'Working with the Media Library' tutorials to learn how to upload your new logo image, and resize it if required.
When using a graphic for your logo, it's best to use a ( Transparent PNG ) format. There are different transparent PNG image quality settings such as 8, 24 or 32 bit. The higher the better. Transparent PNG's allow the the graphic to float nicely over the background of the page, instead of showing a blocky white background, the image will look more like it was designed for the web page, compared to being 'added' to the web page.
If you do plan on using a transparent PNG graphic for your logo, you'll need to have the logo provided in that format ( if you're logo was created by a design company, they should have provided the logo in a vector format, bitmap format, as well as a transparent type of format for use on the web ) .. or use a graphic editor to create the logo with, and export the image in a transparent PNG format ( 24 or 32 bit work the best ).
