Part 2: Create a label profile
Let's setup your label profile in a few easy steps.
- Label name
- Label logo (optional)
To bring up the label profile editor navigate to Catalog > Labels on the main nav. Here are some screenshots of the form. Use the tabbed menu to page through the screenshot.
NOTE: We only need your label name and logo at this time.
Set all your social media links so we can include them in your automated postings.
If you already have an established label name, enter it with exact spelling in the Full Label Name field and then click "Save" at the bottom of the form.
Once you have saved your label name into the system, you can continue to Part 3 of this quick-start guide, however if you do have a logo, we suggest you go ahead and set that up (see specifications below).
This refers to the logo found under the "General" tab of your label profile. This is the main logo we will use on dark backgrounds, so it needs to be a bright color which stands out on black (more on that below).
This logo will be used on your Demos Inbox, landing pages, generated video intro sequences, email alerts and elsewhere as-needed.
We need two versions of your logo, both with a transparent background.
This is because the logo often overlays a varying degree of background brightnesses and we need to accommodate for both. The best approach currently available is to have a bright version of your logo as well as a dark version of your logo.
IMPORTANT: * Make sure your logo has a transparent background before uploading!
Find this field in in Label > General.
Logo 1 (bright logo) image requirements
Dots per inch (DPI)
White of bright (compatible with black backgrounds)
Find this field in in Label > Images.
Logo 2 (dark logo) image requirements
Dots per inch (DPI)
Black or dark (compatible with white backgrounds)
This example shows the bright logo in square aspect ratio with a transparent background.

TIPS Your bright logo does not have to be white. It can be any color as long as it is clearly visible on a dark background.
Conversely, your dark logo does not have to be black. It just has to be clearly visible on a bright background. Minimal transparent gradients and shadows are ok, and can enhance how your logo looks on a wider array of backgrounds. Also note, the example in the above screenshot is from Photoshop which is why you see the checkered pattern. Your image should have a transparent background. PNG format required.

Feel free to fill out other fields on your label profile if you wish. You can always come back later and make changes. Check the rest of our documentation to read more about each setting.
You've made it! Now it's on to PART 3, creating a release!
