Tips

A. Main Images

Simply scale down the splash images (background, logo + graphic) to create these graphics.

Note: Always ensure that your splash image background is opaque. Splash images cannot include any transparent backgrounds.

B. Menu Button Images

Please prepare images for the following menu buttons: Friends, Chats, Timeline, Calls, News, More, and Wallet.
The menu bar shown to users will vary by service or region.

Four-Menu Display

Five-Menu Display

CallsOther

NewsWallet

Two variations are needed, one for when the tab is unselected (off) and one for when it's selected (on).
There should be a margin of around 10 pixels between the trimmed image and the content around it. Please consider the balance of the stickers when creating your designs.

ON

Menu Button Image Notification Badges

A notification badge icon with either a number or "N" mark will be shown over your menu button images.
The badge location cannot be changed, so we recommend keeping it in mind when designing your button images.
Note: The badge icon display is automatically controlled by the LINE app and doesn't require any additional images from creators.
The badges will appear over every tab menu button image.

iOS
Menu button image size: 128 × 150
Badge size: 33 × 33

The badge will be displayed over the top right corner of your menu button images with the following margins.
· Top: 49 pixels
· Right: 21 pixels

C. Menu Background Images

You can optionally create a menu background image.
If you do not create one, the background design of the selected color skin will be used instead.

iOS
The image file's background should have a height of 150 pixels.
Please ensure that your illustration is between 100 and 150 pixels in height. The bottom-most 100 pixel rows must be opaque, while any portion above this mark can have a transparent background.
The opaque portion in the illustration below measures 130 pixels from the bottom and leaves 20 pixel rows free as transparent background.

Any gaps in your transparent backgrounds may appear as black areas. Please check your theme thoroughly on the preview screen before submitting it.

Illustration height: 130 Transparent margin: 20Height: 150

Android
The image file's background should have a height of 112 pixels.
A 640 pixel wide image is tiled horizontally.Please ensure that both sides of the image line up to tile seamlessly.

E. Profile Images

F. Chat Background Image

You may create a chat background image.
If you do not create one, the background design of the selected color skin will be used instead.

iOS
Max: 1482 x 1334
Min: 60 x 60
Te display size for images in portrait mode is 640 x 1334.

Android
Max: W1300 × H1300
Min: W60 × H60

Graphics must always be centered and bottom-aligned regardless of device orientation.
Graphics will be aligned above the chat bar on iOS devices.
On Android devices, the graphics will be aligned beneath the chat bar. The chat bar may obscure the bottom portion of your graphic, so allow a suitably large margin at the bottom to prevent this.
Note: The theme preview provided after uploading your theme may differ from the actual device display.

As long as a graphic's size is within the specified minimum and maximum limits, any size is acceptable. Images can be either transparent or opaque. If an image's background is transparent, the graphic will be shown layered over the background design of the selected color skin. Files must not exceed 1 MB.
