Adding the Store Logo
To add the store logo that you have created, simply login to the PrestaShop 1.5 then select PREFERENCES, scroll down to THEMES and then to APPEARANCE. Select the Store logo with the first option. The rest of the page will have the options for where the logo can be used elsewhere with with your or your customers. For each logo type, there is a BROWSE button that you can use to select the logo from your computer. Note that the size of the logo may different depending on where it is used. For example, your favicon (which is 16x16 pixels) will not be a good choice to use for your email or invoices because it would be too tiny.
The different store logos that can be added include:
Mail Logo - Used in email sent from the store
Invoice Logo - Used for generated invoices
Favicon - Favicons are small images that can identify your website in the browser. It's the tiny icon that you see on the address bar when you look at a website. Typical size is 16 pixesl x 16 pixels.
Store Icon - Used in the store locator (as used in Google Maps). The size of this icon is being indicated as 30x30 pixels.
Once your store logos are set, you have completed one of the first steps in branding your store!
