Logo Editing

The following is a step by step guide to customising your Ionosphere logo image by replacing the logo text with your own organization or company's name and logo.

Gantry sets the dimensions of the logo, so CSS modification is unnecessary.

Logo
  • Open the logo-source.png file in Adobe® Fireworks.
  • In the right column, find Layers. Select the Web layers directory and click the eye icon to the left of the logo slice (the green object). This will make the slice invisible so you can edit the file.

Step 2 - Text/Slogan/Icon Editing

  • Double click on the logo text. Now you can edit the text of logo to your choosing. Edit the icon as desired.
