Logo and Background Image Requirements

For the logo and background image files, select a file of type .jpg, .png, or .gif. The maximum file size is 5 MB.

Note the following about the logo and background images:

  • Logo Image: Images smaller than 125 pixels wide and 25 pixels are displayed without resizing them. For large image logos, Oracle recommends that you maintain a 5:1 ratio so the image can be scaled without distortion.
  • Background Image: The default size for the background image is 1024x768. If you use a larger background image, the image is scaled to fit the resolution setting of your display. If you want your background image to fit both a browser and a mobile device, Oracle recommends that you size the image so that it fits your biggest screen (or highest resolution device). The background image is centered horizontally.

Note:

When switching to a new theme, customers using a custom background image might need to ensure that the color contrast for icons and labels is appropriate. To remedy, consider choosing a different theme or a suitable background.
