I realise that the instructions here may not cover all cases and so please do tell me about any difficulty you have in using them so I can make them better.

Web PagesSRP logo in red 200 pixels wide

The logos for web pages are .png files and come in two sizes, 200 and 800 pixels. Usually 200 is best as it is small and can be used for images up to this size:

There are two methods of inserting a logo into your web page: downloading or linking.

Method 1: Download and use a copy of the logo file

  1. Choose the colour and size of logo that you want.
  2. Left click on the link below to download the image file for the logo.
  3. Save this file on your computer. Do not try to open it (If you do open it, you may find it displays with a black or coloured background – please ignore this, as it doesn’t affect how it displays on your page).
    The file will be saved in your Downloads folder unless you have chosen to save it somewhere else.
  4. Use this file in your web editing software, You can adjust the displayed size by changing the width of the image – don’t edit the logo file itself.

200 pixels.

 

800 pixels.

 

Method 2: Link to this website

If you can edit the html code of your website, you can use the image file directly by incorporating code like the following where you want the logo. Set the width figure according to how big you want the logo.

Use this code for this effect

(Note that the green background is just for illustration – the white logo works on any dark background).

If you need a logo bigger than 200px, then use exactly the same code but with the 800 instead of 200 in the filename:for example <img src=”http://srp.org.uk/downloads/srplogo800.png” alt=”Society of Recorder Players logo” style=”width:600px;”>

Other Software

The masters of these logos are in scalable vector graphics (.svg) format. If you are using software that can work with .svg files, you can download these versions.
(Note that athough modern browsers display .svg files, many older ones do not so you should not use these on web pages.)

 

Some programs use encapsulated postscript (.eps), another scalable format.

 

If you need the logo in any other format, or in a different colour or size, please contact webeditatsrpdotorgdotuk

Comparison with previous formats

Unfortunately the logo exists in several unsatisfactory versions. Some are simply the wrong image
(for example this one )
and some are correct but in a poor format.

Here is a document that shows the difference between the old and new formats.

The new .emf (and .svg) logos are scalable: that means that whatever size you make them, they appear sharp. In contrast the .gif and .jpg formats used up to January 2013 are bitmap formats: they look ragged when printed or when displayed at large sizes. In addition, the old copies are not transparent, so look wrong with anything other than a white background.

Unfortunately not every program will accept scalable formats (though most will) so I have made the bitmap (.png) images as well. These are higher resolution than the previous .gif or .jpg images, so they look better although they cannot be expanded indefinitely. They are also transparent.
