You can customize the branding of the vCloud Director client UI and some of the links that appear on the vCloud Director Home login screen.

For a sample .css template with information about the styles that vCloud Director supports for custom themes, see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1026050.

vCloud Director uses its default logo, or the logo that you upload, in the login screen, the header, and the footer. The login screen shows the logo in an area that ranges from a minimum of 48x48 pixels to a maximum of 60x150 pixels. You can upload logos that are smaller than 48x48 or larger than 60x150 and vCloud Director scales them to fit in the display area and maintain the aspect ratio of the uploaded image. The file size for an uploaded image cannot exceed 16384 bytes. The header and footer scale the logo to an appropriate size and maintain the aspect ratio of the original.

The file must be in the PNG, JPEG, or GIF format.
