Creating a banner
You can add a custom banner image to any TINT. When uploading a Banner make sure to consider the width to height ratio. For most devices, a 5:1 ratio image will make the most sense, allowing for content to still occupy plenty of space below the banner. We support both static and animated but only image types (jpeg, gif, png). It is important to use high-quality images with a high number of dots per inch (dpi), the minimum is 72 dpi but we recommend at least 300 dpi. This way the image will be downscaled instead of upscaled. Upscaling an image will make the pixels larger, which can result in blurriness.
By following these tips, you can create banners that are both visually appealing and effective.
If you're placing your TINT on a display, if you know the native resolution of the screen you are using, using an image that has a matching width is also recommended, to avoid any upsampling.
