    I simply enlarged it via Paintbush but am unable to get full Retina vertical resolution, thus you might have to use other methods filling the non existing vertical height with black.

    Btw, the "logo" uses Arial Bold Italic as font, thus it should be easily be recreateable in Gimp or Photoshop (both free, later only for 30 days though).

    PS: The original image had to be enlarged to ten times the original size.

    But that is using 2048 vertical pixels instead of 1536 pixel. Is the iPad a 1:1 aspect ratio victim?

    the iPad with retina display is 2048 x 1536 pixels and in order for pictures to look good when you rotate the iPad, pictures should be resized at 2048 x 2048 pixels...

    Thanks, forgot about that rotating, while doing the rotation thing.

    See, if I would have made that logo full size, I just would have given the OP that 2048 x 1536 version, but then again, enlarging an image is always easy with Paintbush, the smaller, the better.

    Thanks?

    All in all it was just that application enlarging the image, and as I said, the smaller the image, the better the enlargement, like those boner pills advertised between the TLLSwCF.

    And to be honest, it is quite a simple logo, uses a simple font and a simple graphic. The most problematic thing was the glow around the white font, which I tried with a Drop Shadow, but then just use the Stroke option in the Blending Options of PS.

    That's it.

    Is there a way to get the background to go away? Like if I wanted to put it on a t shirt or something? I tried on gimp but totally couldn't get it.
