I would like to change the logo that is embedded into my website www.csthousing.com. What is the preferred file format I would need to provide Intuit to make the change? Should it be a translucent image?

Great question David, since your website and the header have a colored background, you will want to make the white background of your logo transparent. There are two common file formats which support transparencies; .gif and .png

If you don't have any software on your computer, you might try searching Google for a free online editor that creates transparent backgrounds. Once you make the background transparent, be sure to save it in the .png or .gif format otherwise it will revert back to the white background.

A few to try;

FYI.... Sometimes the output of the free online editors creates a fuzzy, or jagged edged image. Start with the highest quality image that you have for better results.

If you are unable to do this on your own and want one of our designers to help you, just reply and I'll have one of our consultants contact you so that you can get a price quote.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
can I add text as a "watermark".

I would like to add watermark text - for example, the words "sold out" to appear as translucent on top of over information. Can I do this? if so how?

If you are wanting a special font or special effect, you'll probably want to use a 3rd party software that is capable of creating the text with a transparent background, and save the image in either a .png or .gif format. Once you import the image into SiteBuilder you can then repeat and layer it on top of any object on the site you wish.

SiteBuilder will allow you to place an ordinary text box over other objects if you just want to use standard text.
