Simple way to display a transparent logo in Prestashop 1.6

You have prepared a transparent logo, but when you upload it to your eshop, it's not transparent anymore. How to figure it out?

Here is a solution:
Go to your back office > Preferences > Images

Scroll down to "IMAGES GENERATION OPTIONS" and set "Use PNG only if the base image is in PNG format." as you can see on the screenshot:
transparent png

Now you can finally upload your logo in the back office. Click on "Preferences" in the menu and then "Themes".

At this moment you have to upload your logo again. Make sure you are uploading a logo, which is really transparent. In that case it should be a .PNG picture or .GIF
