Alternatively, to design your badge in an image editor:

Your badge image must be square and at least 256x256 pixels in size. Our uploader will let you know if an image you provide does not meet these requirements.

The badge must be uploaded in a PNG format. 

We recommend a three-step process to design your badge:

1. Choose a background: Start with a simple shape and use your organization's colors for consistent branding. Here are some examples:

2. Add some flair: Make your badge look attractive by adding a ribbon or similar element that makes the badge stand out. This could also be used to show different tiers of achievement.
