HINT: IMAGE FORMAT for SIGNS, SCREENS

If you want to use uploaded images for your signs or screens, here is the information about the correct image size.

Despite that screens and signs are 2x1 width x height, the image you need to upload needs to be SQUARE. For my SIGN XS I used an image 400 x 400 pixel, to give an example.

However, the content of the image must NOT be height-stretched! That means, you need to place the content into the center of the image. The content area width that later will be visible, measures in my example 400 x 200 pixel. Means, that there will be unused space above and below that visible area.

I hope that my information helps.

I've been using SVG files I created, with a background square of 192x108 (proportionally rescaled in the graphics program) and so far the signs are coming out beautiful.   No distortion of the image takes place, and I've used about 2 dozen variations all with a scaled 1080p background.  Note that I've only been using this on screens (both transparent and standard). I don't mess with signs much.  edit: Note that I create these in a vector based graphics app (Illustrator) and keep them simplified, the signs support 20k characters of SVG maximum in a simple "Quick SVG" paste.
