How big should my images be?


EventMobi's graphics gurus have created a guide with all the recommended image dimensions you need to create logos, widgets, and banner ads that look great on your app.

NOTE: When you upload images, please ensure that you use letters or numbers; image upload names cannot include special characters such as _ - , / # ! ? = + ( ) 

Generally speaking, web images should have the following features:
Pixels Per Inch (PPI): 72
Colour Profile: RGB
Size: 16 MB


Home Screen widgets appear on your app's landing page. They're the first thing your attendees will see when they finally load the app, so it's important to make them engaging. For more information on creating amazing Home Screen widgets, check out this article of the FAQs.

Below are the 4 different types of image widget sizes you can use and the recommended dimensions.

      1                2               3                4

1.  300 pixels x 250 pixels

2.  600 pixels x 250 pixels

3.  300 pixels x 500 pixels

4.  600 pixels x 500 pixels


The Event App Icon is used when you download the app to your phone or tablet, and if you've opted to put your app in the app store, it appears on your app's preview page. If you're not offering the app in an app store, your icon can be as small as 114x114 pixels. If you are planning to put the app in an app store, you should use a much higher resolution image. We recommend 1024x1024 pixels to ensure the optimal display in all app stores.


The Loading & Menu Image appears when you're app is loading and at the top of the menu, unless you have replaced it on the menu with a banner ad. It looks like this on the app:

The graphic itself should follow these dimensions:


Banner ads appear at the top of the menu, replacing your Loading & Menu Image, and throughout the Agenda, Companies, Speakers, and Attendees modules (every 9 entries or so). To learn more about banner ads and other sponsorship opportunities, check out this article of the FAQs.  

Here is an example of a banner add in your app module dashboard.

Banner ads must be .jpg, .gif, or .png files and must have a height-to-width ratio of 1:6, so keep that in mind when designing your banner ads.


The profile pictures and logos that appear in attendee, speaker, and company profiles are resized on the app to 100 x 100 pixels. As such, we recommend using square images to maximize their size and resolution on the app.


You can create your own module icons if you can't find an appropriate one among our selection. When you're choosing an icon from the Sections tab of the App Design Studio module, scroll to the bottom of the selection and click Upload Your Own. You'll then have the option of downloading a 64 x 64 pixel template that you can use to make your image in Photoshop, or you can directly upload one that you've prepared. If you have prepared your own, we recommend keeping to the 64 x 64 pixel recommended dimensions to ensure that your icon fits in the space provided and matches all the other icons.


Maps can be any size you like, but we recommend keeping them around 1200 pixels high and 1500 pixels wide at largest. Keep in mind that the map file is going to be viewed on a mobile device; it needn't be huge provided that it's clear. We usually try to keep maps around 150kb. 



The cover image that appears at the top of your registration page should be 1920 x 600 pixels.
