It is also important to note that this skin is not readily available in the back end of your site, and the code will have to be applied by the Placester team directly. If you have any questions about this, get in touch with our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The logo on the Wilshire skin is displayed in the top left corner of the site. You can upload a logo of your choice by going to Site Settings > Site Info. Learn more about uploading a logo here.
There is not a strictly recommended logo dimension for the Beacon and Wilshire skins. These skins have flexible headers so the size of the header will change based off of the size of the logo.
The dimensions people tend to set their logo to are 250 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. But the dimensions can vary based on the shape of the logo.
The slideshow images are the largest images that can appear on your homepage, so it's important to use the ideal dimensions to get the most out of this valuable space. The ideal size for slideshow images is 1500 pixels wide by 844 pixels tall. Learn more about adding slideshow images here.
Tip: Our customers are most successful with using images of homes, scenes, and landscapes without any text on them where a little cropping on the top or bottom wouldn’t have a huge impact.
The Agent image will appear on your Home, Contact, Testimonials and Property Details pages. You can add it by going to Site Settings > Site Info or can learn more about doing so here. This image should be 275 pixels wide by 275 pixels tall.
