// General FAQ
What resolution should my art be when uploaded?
Files should be 72-ppi and 300px x 300px square. They also must be in RGB format, not CMYK format, or they will show up as broken links. If your work is selected for a book, we will contact you for higher resolution art.
What are the new Trend Boxes?
Like the Lightboxes you're accustomed to using, these virtual storage spaces put you in the driver's seat as you organize and keep track of logo collections. But rather than sources of inspiration, Trendboxes will help you and the design community identify and track ... well, trends. To learn more about the trend boxes, please click here.
Do I really need to provide keywords and other information for every entry?
Yes. Use your computer's auto-fill capability, and the job is a snap. Without keywords, it is unlikely that your work will ever be accessed on the site: Other members simply can't find it.
How do I update or change my contact information?
Go to Manage Accounts and make your changes there. E-mail is the only vehicle we have to contact you, so do keep your information up-to-date.
What logos are eligible for uploading?
There are no time constraints on when a logo was created for it to be uploaded to the website. Also, logos do not have to have been chosen by the client or in use to be eligible.
Can I remove a logo from the site?
When you upload a logo, you have 48 hours past that point to remove it. Just go to Manage Logos and click Delete for that design. Past that point, the logo becomes part of the LogoLounge database. Since this database is used for research by many people, removing work hobbles the system, creating broken links and other problems. Think of the site like a book that you constantly reference: You wouldn't want to open it up one day and find that entire pages are missing.
