LOGOS and IMAGES
Your logo and the image (photo) that will appear on the website must be submitted with this application. For many potential donors, your photo is an essential element of your NPO’s profile on the G!G website. It helps visually educate readers about who you are and your mission. Avoid images with too many people; one to four is optimal.
SELECTING YOUR PHOTO FOR THE WEBSITE
Send an original, high-resolution** image. The web photo MUST be in landscape mode (a horizontal rectangle, the shape of a dollar bill), approximately 396 pixels high x 745 pixels wide.
** WHAT IS A HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTO?
High resolution photos are required for sharp reproduction. There really is a difference between lo- and hi-res. It can determine whether your logo and photo look fuzzy or crystal clear. Pictures should be taken at the highest resolution setting on the camera or phone. The more pixels a picture has, the larger its file size will be. Hi-res images are at least 300 pixels per inch (ppi). The best way to tell if an image is hi-res is to open the picture in an image program and view the file properties. Most computers come with a basic image editing program that will work for this.
