Making a Custom Logo for Your Wiki Space

We won't have time to actually make a custom logo for your wiki space. You'll have to design that on your own some other time, but you can use a photo or a graphic or something you design from scratch. Anything will work as long as it is in GIF, JPEG, or PNG format and no larger than 150 X 150 pixels (it doesn't have to be square, but it fits the layout better if it is).

For today you can use the Whip Up a Wiki Logo Placeholder to see how easy it is to customize your logo:

Have an image? Reduce it to 150 X 150 and try it out. Try changing your wiki colors in Look and Feel -- do some colors work better than others?
