This tutorial will show you how to replace the ‘dummy’ logo with another one.
Open the PSD file you need to edit. Usually it is located in the sources folder of your template.

To change the background select the background layer and click twice on the layer thumbnail. You may pick any color you need.
The background is changed. Now we can save the logo using the ‘File’ > ‘Save for Web’ option. However, you might need to set a transparent background for your logo.
In order to do that, do a right-click on the small eye in the layers panel. Use ‘Hide all other layers’ option. It will make the process easier.
Now select the background layer. Do a right-click and choose ‘Rasterize layer’ option.
Using the ‘Magic wand’ tool click on the logo background. After that use the ‘Magic eraser’ tool on the same background.
