Transparent background for logo

Question

I am using the Forte template and have uploaded my logo as a jpeg but this flattens the image making it have a white background rather than a transparent one. Any way to insert a different file format into replica the role of the logo in the template but to be transparent?

It depends on the source file. When you have a .jpg that has already a white background you have to separate it from background first > with photoshop. Because saving it as .png wont make the background disapear:

The source Logo

Mark the white background with photoshop or another program(Make sure that you made a new layer (doesn't work in background layer in photoshop)

And delete the background

And then the logo is perfect:alt text

PS: Make sure you use RGB color because you can't make a .png with CMYK

If you save as a .png with transparent background, DO NOT use the Squarespace image editor to crop or change the logo in any way. It will automatically change your logo from transparent to flattened with white background. You have to upload it at the right size / crop as saved by your third party image editor (photoshop etc) to maintain the integrity of the transparent background.
