A tip for uploading a logo


Where to find:
Click on your Name (top right) - Account Preferences - Company Branding - Job Advert

In the event that you have problems in uploading your company logo, try the following:

  • Open the logo in an image editing program (e.g. IrfanView).
  • Choose the function "Canvas size" (the name for the function in IrfanView). The name of the function will depend on the type of image editing program you are using.
  • Change the canvas dimension in pixels. The result should be a square version of your company logo (min. 200 x 200 pixel).
  • Choose the canvas color (mostly white).
  • Save your changes.
  • After completing these steps, you should have no problem when uploading your company logo.


If a problem continues to occur, don't hesitate to contact our support team via support@firstbird.com.
