Changing your logo image in PrestaShop 1.6

After installing PrestaShop 1.6 to your hosting account you will want to begin to make the store yours. This includes adding products and categories, and possibly changing themes. One of the most important aspects of branding your site and making it yours, however, is to add your own logo. PrestaShop 1.6 has a default logo. This is simply for display so you can visualize how it sits on your site. Follow along below as we guide you on changing the logo for your PrestaShop store.

How to change your logo in PrestaShop 1.6

  1. Log into the PrestaShop admin interface.
  2. From the left side menu, click on Preferences and then Themes.

  3. This page is the main Theme page, however the logo manager is also here. Scroll down until you see the Header Logo. This is located in Appearance section. Click on the Add File button to search and add your new logo file from your local computer.

  4. Once you have added the file, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Save button. The logo will now be changed to the one you added.

Note: If you do not have specific images for the Mobile, Mail or Invoice logos they will use the header image by default. If you wish to have different images for any of these, simply repeat the process using that logo section.

  3. hi,


    regarding changing the 404 page not found please I need further explanations, going to the theme file ….is not enought as an explanation…

    Can you help me please?

    1. Scott is suggesting you can edit the coding of the 404.tpl file to replace the icon. This will require some knowledge of code editing.

      Alternately, you may be able to replace the logo image as described in this forum post from the official PrestaShop forums.

      Thank you,

    1. Hello Tanya,

  6. Hi

    This is my first time to you use prestashop ( and trying to change logo but no sucess. Please advise.  Regards

    1. Hello Nusrat,

      After you changed your logo did you clear your browsers cache as that can some times prevent the changes being viewed. Can you provide your website url so we may look at it as well? Do you have caching enabled on PrestaShop? If so please disable it until you make the changes.

      Best Regards,
      TJ Edens

  7. Hello, how do I do if I need transparency in my logo. I mean, if I want my logo to let trough the same color as the page itself. What format should I use and what to do? thank you!!

    1. Hello Adriana,

      The image formats that allow transparent backgrounds are gif and png. Either one of those can do what you ask!

      Kindest Regards,

  9. How and where can change the file-size for the new log,because my logo is smaller

    (168×52) as the old logo,but im can not find the css files for changing ?

    1. Hello Mike,

      The image size should automatically adjust. I have tested with both large and very small logos and they appear as their normal size. Are you having any specific issue when uploading your logo?

      Kindest Regards,
      Scott M

  10. i got problem: i have jpeg over 3mb logo and i add it to theme page and i try to save it but the page turn to white and not save.why?


    1. Hello Enis,

      Sorry for the problem with the logo file. Most likely, it’s because of a limit to the size of the file. You might want to work on getting the file size so that it’s much smaller than 3 MB (that would be a very large file for the logo image). The graphic should be below 1 MB. You may also need to check the PHP.INI file. Check out this article on Max file upload size.

      I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

      Kindest regards,
      Arnel C.

    2. after changing the logos in the back-office, its showing , but when i refresh the “My shop” the logo still didnt change. Help

    3. Hello Peacee,

      Have you cleared the cache for the browser or tested on a different one to conform?

      Kindest Regards,
      Scott M
