How Big Should My Images Be?

EventMobi's graphics gurus have created a guide with all the recommended image dimensions you need to create logos, widgets, and banner ads that look great on your event space.

NOTE: When you upload images, please ensure that you use letters or numbers; image upload names cannot include special characters such as _ - , / # ! ? = + ( )

General Web Graphics Info

Generally speaking, web images should have the following features:
Pixels Per Inch (PPI): 72
Colour Profile: RGB
Size: 16 MB

Image Widgets

  • For square/ 1:1 dimension image widgets, the new HPD automatically fills the width of the widget. So, even if our image is square, if the image widget is rectangular anyway, the top & bottom would get cropped off).
  • Size: 1:1 ratio (square), ex. 600px by 600px
  • Format: JPEG or PNG (transparent)
  • Size: 2:1 dimension, ex. 1200px by 600px
  • Format: JPEG or PNG (transparent)
  • Size: 1.25:1 dimension, ex. 750px by 600px
  • Format: JPEG or PNG (transparent)

*We recommend files in JPG format if transparency isn’t important, otherwise use PNG.

Background Images

  • Use a JPG image since backgrounds don’t need to be transparent anyway
  • At least 2000 - 3000px in width (probably no more than 3000 or 3100px to keep the file size to a minimum)
  • 3:4 (ex. 3000px x 2250px) or 16:9 (ex. 3000px x 1687.50px) ratios should be good for most screens.

Always use a JPG file if transparency isn’t necessary. JPG images can be “lossy” -- which means that this image type has data reduced. PNGs, on the other hand, are “lossless” images. This means all of the data is preserved within the image, which results in heavy image file sizes.  

Branded App Image Assets

In order to submit your app on your behalf, you'll need to provide us with the following assets. Email these alongside your intake form to Support.

  • App Icon (1024 x 1024px)
  • Start-Up Image (2732 x 2732 with safe space as shown below)
  • Google Play Feature Image (1024 x 500px) 

Widgets

Widgets help to bring life to your page. Not only do they help with establishing branding or theme, but they are also a great way to engage and direct your audience to content. 

Our Page Designer makes it very easy to resize your widgets to best fit your ideal page design. You do not need to worry about exact image sizes fitting the widget as you have the ability to completely resize your images by dragging the widget to the size and scale you desire.

Banner  Widgets
The maximum recommended size for Banner Images is 3000px x 750px in JPEG format. We also recommend having a separate foreground image banner (transparent PNG) from the graphic background image to ensure responsiveness on different screens.

 
Event Space Icon

The Event Space Icon is used to show your icon in the tab of the web browser or when you download the web based app to your phone or tablet, and if you've opted to put your app in the app store, it appears on your app's preview page. If you're not offering the app in an app store, your icon can be as small as 100x100 pixels. If you are planning to put the app in an app store, you should use a much higher resolution image. We recommend 1024x1024 pixels to ensure the optimal display in all app stores. This icon will also be used to represent your app for users who are accessing the event information from the EventMobi app. 

Loading Image

The Loading Image appears when your event space is loading. It looks like this on the event space:


2

The graphic itself should be 600 pixels wide by 300 pixels high. 

Banner Ads

Banner ads appear at the top of the menu and throughout the Agenda, Companies, and People sections (every 9 entries or so). Here is an example of a banner ad in your app menu:



Banner ads must be .jpg, .gif, or .png files and must have a height-to-width ratio of 1:6, so keep that in mind when designing your banner ads. Recommended sizing for Banner Ads is 600 by 100 px. 

Profile Pictures and Company Logos

The profile pictures and logos that appear in people, and company profiles are resized on the app to 100 x 100 pixels. As such, we recommend using square images to maximize their size and resolution on the app.

Pre- and Post-Stream Images

For the Pre-Stream and Post Stream Images for your Live Streaming video your images should be 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Maps

Maps can be any size you like, but we recommend keeping them around 1200 pixels high and 1500 pixels wide at largest. Keep in mind that the map file is going to be viewed on a mobile device; it needn't be huge provided that it's clear. 

Registration Page Cover Photo

The cover image that appears at the top of your registration page should be 1920 x 600 pixels.
