Do you need a transparent .gif pushpin image?

Windows: right-click on a push-pin image and save it to use. Macintosh: control-click. Enjoy. These are 25 pixels wide and 34 high.

  1. Hi Russ, it’s not sized in pixels, it is an svg file — essentially text programming, interpreted by the viewer or browser, that will scale crisply to whatever size you need. To make the little pushpin png visible on a 2560-pixels-wide screen it would have to be a huge file mass to download. This one is 644 bytes no matter what size it appears on the screen.

    Here’s a link to some information about the graphic type:



    • Hi Beth,
      Read this in wiki…”SVG drawings can be dynamic and interactive. Time-based modifications to the elements can be described in SMIL, or can be programmed in a scripting language (e.g. ECMAScript or JavaScript). The W3C explicitly recommends SMIL as the standard for animation in SVG.[8] However SMIL was deprecated in Google Chrome as of Aug 2015.[9]” – hmmmm does this mean animation is less applied now? As for creating SVG graphics, will photoshop do?


  2. It’s a background image so the direct link for the file is
    644 bytes and crisp even at large res — not bad — though it doesn’t have highlighting like yours


  3. Hi Russ, appreciate the use of your pushpin gif. :) Went responsive and wanted an svg so I made one– it’s here if you want to use it
