Description

Currently, the settings page allows to set the Application Title. However, if one want's to put the Logo or any graphic - one needs to modify the code. Either application.css or files in layout.

I think the Admin setting's page should allow to select/upload the image and set the size so that without modifying the code.

If one doesn't specify the graphic, the behavior can be same as current.

Hm, well... You just can add a theme with nothing more than your changed CSS rule regarding the header logo. Everything else would be inherited from the default layout.

I see a problem, if your selecting a image and define a image width, there will be some problems, regarding the menus and other parts of the layout, as the logo image could overlap with other parts of redmine.

This could be a problem.

Changing theme in application.css is not right because when we use multiple themes -same needs to be repeated in every theme.

I have followed this wiki page HowTo add a logo to your Redmine banner but usually for many people they won't change the code even if it is not messy.

I still had to go through tinkering to get size and alignment right - which makes it very messy.

Well, this repeated tasks could be solved by the @import rule. Maybe this would help.

But your right, some kind of image upload could be helpful. But I won't see this as a high priority task. :-)
