When creating a badge in Badgr (see How do I create a badge in Badgr (to award)?), you can upload an image from your device that you've already created using a graphic editor or use the Badge Studio to design an image. If you're planning on uploading your own images, here are some guidelines on how to construct successful images to use as digital badges.


Badges are portable beyond Badgr to wherever earners take them. That means they may be displayed against a wide variety of background colors. While Badgr most frequently places images on a white background, this is not always the case, so take care not to leave a white background on your image, because even though this will usually look fine in Badgr, it may look awful not be visually acceptable on recipients' job profiles or other places.


Badges are sometimes displayed at a small size. Preview your image at around 90x90 device pixels to ensure that elements are not too unclear. This is about around the smallest size that applications commonly embed badge images on the web. 


Remember, badge

Badge images are an important messaging channel for your organization. Earners take them into conversations about their achievements wherever they may be on the web, and in the process they spread the word about the learning opportunities they engaged with. Put your best foot forward by carefully constructing your badge images and using them as worthy representatives of your brand.
