Logo Updates:

We can do this for you, or you can do it yourself. Service options listed below:

  1. We modify the generic logo (a $25 value) for FREE. We will modify this logo, you provide the words and we'll modify the generic logo image.
  2. Or you can provide your own graphic logo image, and we can provide a quote for installing this for you.

 

Your logo is an 'image' embedded into the webpages, and the intro pages, using a SWF, or flash animated file.

To remove the logo, and add your own, you can do one of two things:

1. Add your logo using Swish.

  • open the logo.swi (Swish 2.01 or Swishmax) file, located in the editables folder
  • remove the generic logo from the 'outline' pane'
  • import your own image (using the outline panels - import image option)
  • line your new image up over the 'background' image
  • THEN DELETE THE BACKGROUND IMAGE, this image is only present in the 'logo.swi' file, to help you line your new logo image up correctly.

2. Add your logo to the background image on the webpage.

  • delete the 'logo.swf file from the flash folder
  • start your favorite graphics program
  • edit the background graphic for the intro page by importing the "INTRO-BG.JPG' image located in your images folder
  • add your own logo image to the intro-bg.jpg
  • save or export the updated image

repeat the steps above for the template pages, but import the 't1b.jpg' image, also located in the images folder

Images in flash intro, and template pages:

These images are used for both the flash intro and  WITHOUT the need for flash. The images are loaded into a flash file externally. Therefore you can replace the images by opening the flash folder and editing the following images.

For the intro page: to replace these images,, just create a new images with the following dimensions: (175 pixels wide x 210 pixels high), save as a jpeg image and name them as listed below. Then save to the flash folder, to overwrite the existing images.

intro-image1.jpg
intro-image2.jpg
intro-image3.jpg
intro-image4.jpg

 

And for the template pages, same as above, but use the following dimensions (510 pixels wide x 149 pixels high)

header-left1.jpg
header-left2.jpg
header-left3.jpg
header-left4.jpg

 

And finally, you can replace the background image, under the 'flash messages (310 pixels wide x 185 pixels high)
