General information about images

All images are saved to imagebank. You have your own imagebank for your private account and there are separate image banks for every team. You can't use images from your private bank to team presentations and vice versa. Images can be saved to folders in imagebank. Empty folders are deleted automatically. You can import as many images to imagebank as you want. The most common screen size is in scale 16:9 with about 1920 x 1080 (HDTV). You probably will not need any larger size (even if you use Retina screens). Exact size of Seidat content area is 1280 x 900 pixels.

SVG is a little bit complicated file format. To make it work perfectly, it must has only vector content inside. If you use text inside, there will be problems with fonts (using only fonts, which browser (computer) has. If you use png or other bitmap-images inside, they won't appear on thumbnails (small slide images). We have restricted svg usage as background images.

Not supported image formats:

  • .psd
  • .tif
