Please note that deviation from these guidelines will increase production time.
The purpose of this page is to present guidelines for image file formats. The intended audiences are people who might not be familiar with design tools nor our unique requirements when working on items like about.gitLab.com, print collateral, and more.
We highly suggest you ask any partner/vendor/client for images that follow these guidelines. Examples of this include but are not limited to:
Our website has a 2MB file size limit. Please plan accordingly when providing image assets.
In the rare case where a JPG or SVG aren't applicable, a full-color PNG with a transparent background is often preferred.
Animations are typically supplied via GIF but might be provided via SVG in certain circumstances. Due to limited browser and tooling support we do not accept WebP files at this time. Animations must conform to the file size limit of 2MB. Animations larger than 2MB might need to be converted into a video file such as MP4 with special arrangements and extra lead time for implementation.
