It seams simple to want to change the size or style of the store icons shown on the “Our Stores page of Prestashop 1.6 and changing them is indeed easy, but only when you know where - and finding where can be time consuming.

Here’s the place to change the store icons:

Note: this works for the default bootstrap theme for Prestashop 1.6 but you will no doubt find the store icon settings for other templates in the same place.

  1. Open the Prestahsop 1.6 back office
  2. Hover over the “preferences” pane on the left side of the screen and click: “Themes”
  3. You will be presented with the template configuration settings main page, click on the “ICONS” tab.
  4. Upload an resized imaged for the Store Icon by clicking “Add file” in the store icon section of this tab.

I set my store icons to 50p. Note the icon appears to be aligned around the center of the image, that is to say the store location on the Google map will represent the center of the icon you upload. Also, it appears that pngs with full transparency don’t work on the map.

Hope that helps you find where to change the width or height of the store icons in Prestashop by uploading a new resized image.
