The original JA Purity template was provided from as a zip but the latest files have been installed along with Joomla. The relevant files, logo.gif (used for PNG transparency problems) and logo.png, are in the following directory:


If you've been following the tutorial you can download a tutorial version of the template that installs to the following directory:

  1. Create an new image, width: 207 pixels , height: 80 pixels using any graphics editor such as Gimp.
  2. Save the image as both a PNG and a Gif to the template images directory. Make sure you overwrite the existing logo.gif and logo.png files.
  3. Edit, Save, Test till you are satisfied with your new logo.

If you decide later to change the size of the header area then you'll want to change the size of your images to match.
