Add a logo to your website

Shopify enables you to add a logo by editing your Customize theme page. Logos look best in .png file format with a transparent background. If your logo file doesn't have a transparent background, the logo image could partly cover your background image.


You cannot upload animated image files on your Customize theme page. If you want to use animated GIF images you must upload them as assets and edit your theme using the Edit HTML/CSS page.

  1. Find the theme you want to edit and click the Customize theme button for the theme.

  2. On the customize theme menu, click Header:

  3. Change the setting under "Site logo" by selecting "Custom uploaded image" from the drop-down menu.

  4. Now upload your logo file from your computer by clicking Choose File under "Custom logo". Your new logo will be appear as a preview – but don't worry, your customers won't see the changes until you Save.

  5. Click Save changes to publish the logo on your store.


Clicking Clear changes will clear any other unsaved customizations. If you're not happy with the logo you uploaded, use the Replace or Disable button.
