What kinds of graphics you’re able to upload will depend on which version of our app you’re using.
If you’re less familiar with graphics editing programs, one of the first things you’ll typically be asked to do is enter the size that you’d like to make your file.
Sizing logos, backgrounds, overlays, and green screen
Each layout we offer (represented by the icons at the top of the design panel) has a unique size and will require layout-specific graphics. The overall size of your layout will be determined by your layout type (single photo, 1x2 strip, 1x3 strip, etc.), photo crop, iPad orientation, the thickness of your margins, and whether or not you’re using a logo.
There are two ways to determine proper sizing for your graphics: designing your layout first or referring to our design specifications.
Refer to your settings
If you’re able to select your layout settings before your event, you can reference your design panel for the most accurate measurements for your graphics after making all adjustments.
Reference the “suggested size” under the logo upload for your logos, and the “actual size” at the end of the panel for backgrounds, green screen, and overlays.
Note: Simple Booth Classic (formerly Event Edition) does not support backgrounds, green screen, or overlays.
If you won’t be able to design the rest of your layout before creating your graphics, no big deal! Our design guide includes sizing specifications for each of our layouts for your reference. While the sizing may not be exact, you’ll be able to make a design that will fit and look great.
For overlays and backgrounds in particular, the app will stretch any file you upload from corner to corner for a perfect fit. As long as the size is relatively close you will not see any distortion (even if the sizing is slightly off).
Sizing other customizations
If you use HALO, refer to the design guide to reference sizing specifications for custom attract screens, Live Feed ads, and more.
A note about file types: Logos and backgrounds can be PNG or JPEG files. Overlays must be a PNG file, which allows you to save with transparency.
