Logo configuration

Some standard logos are included with GEM-CAR, but your own logo may be a better choice. We asked you to provide us with a picture file of your company’s logo on the day of the installation of GEM-CAR. Consequently, the logo of your company has probably already been configured by one of our technicians. However, if you need to change the logo configured in the GEM-CAR settings, you do not need the assistance of our technical support.

You can use a picture file of your company’s logo and configure it as the default logo in the GEM-CAR settings. For better results, its resolution should be of 195 x 95 pixels and the preferred file format should be .bmp. GEM-CAR can use any picture of any resolution and will also accept the .jpg or.png formats, but it will resize it to 195 x 95 pixels and this can cause blurring and stretching.

First verify if your company’s logo picture has the right resolution. To do so, open it with Microsoft Paint, which is included with the Microsoft Windows operating system, and look for the resolution on the bottom of the window where indicated by the red frame on the picture below.

If the resolution of the picture is 195 x 95px, it is compatible with GEM-CAR and you can configure it as the default logo. Otherwise, to avoid blurring and stretching, you should create a new GEM-CAR compatible logo from this picture.

Follow the steps of the two subsections below to resize a picture of your company’s logo and create a GEM-CAR compatible logo from it.
