Sometimes a client will say "I don't have a copy of my logo."
The easiest way to get a logo is to click and drag it right off of their website, but what if that doesn't work either? Here are a few ways to track down a client's logo:
Inspect Element (in Google Chrome Browser): 1) Right click on the logo and select "inspect element"
2) A new box will open at the bottom of the website
3) On the right side, there will be code from the website and there should be a blue link that will give you the exact location of the Logo
4) Click on this link to make sure it is just the Logo
5) Copy this link
6) Paste it in the "Get Image from URL" field in the Header section (or use it as a custom header)
Do an image search for the Logo:
- Type exactly what you want into your preferred search engine -if I was looking for TenderApp's logo I would type "TenderApp logo"
- Adjust your search so that you are only looking at images (e.g. On Google, you can click "images" to the left of the search results)
- You can usually find the company's logo this way, and then drag and drop it to your desktop
- Do not directly link to a Logo image if it not from the actual company's website
Take a Screen Shot of the Logo On a Mac –
- Press command+shift+4 and your cursor will turn into a little circle
- If you click and drag then a box will appear, and anything in this box when you let go of the mouse button will be saved to your desktop as “Picture 1″
- If there’s no other way to get a logo this is what I resort to. The image won’t be transparent so you have to match the background color, but it usually works pretty well.
On a PC –
- Pull up the website you need the logo from and press “Prnt Scrn"
- You can go into Paint (or PhotoShop or Paint.net – whatever you use) and paste the whole screen
- Use the Paint tools to get rid of everything except the logo
It’s a longer process but it works, too.
