Image Specifications


Apple iTunes Submission Images

App Icon Image (Required) – 2048 x 2048 pixels, .png format without transparency

Please do not round the corners of the image. Apple does this automatically. Please be aware that the icon needs to be designed simply so that it displays well in several sizes–all the way down to 29 x 29 pixels. This icon will also be placed on a solid color and used to generate launch images. As such, we recommend that your icon has a solid background color.

How the App Icon Image is used

  • Launching the app from a device home screen
  • Launch image - Displayed briefly while the app loads
  • iPad landing page, displayed when durring log in process or on multi event list

Launch Image (Optional) – 2048 x 2048 pixels, .png format, plus hex code for background color

Because of different device sizes, Apple is moving towards using one universal launch screen for all devices. Gather Digital is addressing this change by requiring a square image and a background color. This square image will “float” in the middle of the launch screen to dynamically handle all the different screen sizes. If you choose not to upload a separate launch image, we will create the image from your app icon image. Please provide a background color in hexadecimal code (e.g., #539dc2).

Landing Page Top Banner for Multi-Gathering Apps (Required) – 960 x 225 pixels, .png; landscape oriented

iPad Background Image for Multi-Gathering Apps (Optional) – 2048 x 1536 pixels, .png; landscape oriented

If you choose not to upload a separate iPad launch image, we will automatically create the image using your app icon image. If you do upload an iPad launch image, please note: The multi-gathering listing will be displayed on the right hand side of the landscape-oriented page. That list will cover the right-most 640 pixels. We will create a slightly transparent background for that listing, so you should continue your design over the whole page, but leave this area free of major design elements.

layouts example

iPad Multi-Gathering App

If you're building an app that will hold multiple gatherings, we will use your iPad loading screen image as the background image for the gathering listing. That listing will be on the right hand side of the landscape-oriented page. For the high-res loading screen, that list will cover the right-most 640 pixels. We will make the background of that listing slightly transparent, so you should continue your design over the whole page, but please leave this area free of major design elements.

Photos, Maps, and Icons

Speaker Photos, Link Images
These may be .png or .jpg files. Speaker photos should be at least 225 x 225 pixels. They can be smaller than that, but smaller images will not look as good on the increasingly common high-res "retina" mobile displays.

Floor Plan Map Images
Please upload maps as .jpg files. For optimal viewing when enlarged on the mobile device, we recommend the map image be at least 1800 pixels in either length or width. If your image is larger, we will resize appropriately.

Sponsor Images
These may be .png or .jpg files.

  • Sponsor icons 225 x 225 pixels
  • Widescreen header 960 x 300 pixels

Banner Ads
Banner ads should be 960 pixels wide. The industry standard is for the banner to be around 300 pixels tall, though you may choose any height you wish.
