    Thanks for your help.

    You’re right on the padding in the photo.

    I had used a similar logo from the same source on another GP site without issue, but when I compared both site headers side by side in Google elements, the other logo had no extra transparent padding in the photo.

    It does seem to make a big difference even a just little extra transparent padding.

    Anyway, I’ll have to figure it out from here.

    Thanks again.

    Yeah the extra transparent space in the image can cause a big headache.
    Ideally if you can in your desktop app:

    1. save the image at its largest sitze
    2. crop the image down to as close to the pixel space eg. see green border here:


    3. Then save the Image at the desired size you want it displayed eg. 300px wide

    As a general note, when saving new logos, each new logo you upload should have a different file name.
    As WordPress caches the logo, and if you upload a new logo with the same filename as the old version, then WP may just use the old one.


    Hi David,

    I have an open source photo editor called Gimp. It’s like photoshop as it works with layers, etc. I was able to resize the image and cut out all that extra padding quite easily. In fact, I was able to change the logo to enlarge parts I wanted enlarged within the logo. I was using the Mac “Preview” editor, which is good, but limited and it just wouldn’t let go of that extra padding..lol..

    Anyway, thanks for al your help!

    All the best!
