What Images Work?

An Open Badge image is a PNG file type. This is a common type of image file. You can download this from the sidebar of an Accredible credential. This image file can be shared and uplaoded to a third party badge backpack because it contains metadata about who owns the badge and what it recognizes.

A PNG image that does not have and Open Badge information will not be verified in Accredible's verification tool.
