Resolutions by theme
Each theme has recommended heading sizes. For best results, make sure your images are sized to the dimensions specified above, otherwise they will be stretched or compressed. When uploading larger images, make sure the size ratio matches the ratios above. We also recommend using images in .png format. Visit Locate thematic guides to find out how to access this information.
