Any idea how to

1. Remove the "List" and "Discussion" from the SharePoint Layout
2. Add company logo on the SharePoint.

I want to create a document library for sharing. Which template can I use ? Any quick guideline to easily customize the layout of the home page ?

Hi,

Which Version of Sharepoint do you use?

In case it's 2010:

the Groups Lists and Discussions should not be visible if there are no Lists or Discussion sites you are using or do you want to remove the group headlines and keep the lists and discussion sites?

Depends on where you want to add the company logo if it should be on the homepage or in the navigation ribbon.

The easiest way to customize the layout is to go to the site you want to change (e.g. the home page) then in the ribbon menu switch to "Page" and there use the button "Edit".
Basic LayoutYou are given some basic tools to add pictures, text boxes etc.  
If these options shouldn't be enough use Sharepoint Designer 2010:

http://www.microsoft.com/de-at/download/details.aspx?id=24309

Watch out that Sharepoint Designer matches yout local Office installation concerning processor architecture (32 or 64bit) the link given is for 64-bit.

The document library for sharing:

Quite easy, just click "Site Actions" and "New Document Library" in the following dialog you can name the library and adjust if the library should be shown in the left navigation pane.
New LibraryFor further customizations you can either use Sharepoint Designer (you can also use Designer to create the whole library) or go to the newly created library, switch to Library in the ribbon menu and there hit "Library Settings".
Library SettingsAs you can see there's also a Button "Edit Library" with an orange icon showing a screwdriver an a wrench; this Button will open the library for editing in Sharepoint Designer, which i really recommend ;)

Ok, I thought the headings might disappear when there are no Lists or Discussion Sites but seems like the headings stay.

You can delete the Headings going to "Site Actions" > "Site Settings" then in the Group
"Look and Feel" choose "Quick launch"

There you will see the current structure of the objects in the Quick Launch Bar. Hit the Edit Button next to the corresponding heading. This will open a dialog where you could specify the title and address for the heading. Just hit the Delete button there.

Note that this will also delete any links that would be under that heading which is not the case with your site but it's good to know.

If you wanted to just put any library or list beneath another heading you can just edit that object in the previously seen structure view. When editing a list or library you will have an additional option to choose the Heading where the library will be displayed in the Quick Launch menu.

Hope this helps!

That the image can be seen by anyone opening the site, is has to be stored in sharepoint. The quickest way to do this is to go ro the SiteAssets library, this is a "hidden" library from sharepoint where things like self-made pages or images are stored.

To go there just go to the Sharepont homepage, look at the URL and delete the last part until only your domain name is left, now just add "SiteAssets". It's just a normal library so upload your photo there and use the URL the photo was given:

Example for the homepage URL:
www.example.com/SitePages/home.aspx

change this into:
www.example.com/SiteAssets

When you click the image after uploading you can use the URL given in the address bar or just right click the image and look up the URL in Properties.

Hope this helps!

Alright no worries, there's another way to access the Site Assets.
In the left navigation bar the very last link should read "All Site Content" just click there and search for the library "Site Assets".

Since i got no further feedback from you I assume that the issue is not yet resolved. I can offer you to show you the Assets library using Teamviewer. Just send me a PM.

If the issue should be resolved I would ask you to close this case, thanks!

Ok, a reason why no SiteAssets or SitePages Library has been created may be because you have not yet created a wiki page or normal customized web page (like an empty page which only sohws content of another page).

You can either create a wiki which will create the SiteAssets and SitePages but may mess up your homepage since it sets itself as the homepage, you can change that afterwards though, or you can use Sharepoint Designer to only create that libraries.

Here's how to create the libraries in Sharepoint Designer:

1. Open your website (if you installed Sharepoint Designer on the webserver just connect to localhost)
2. Once the page has loaded go to the left hand Pane labeled "Site Objects"
3. There you will see the Site Assets and Site Pages
4. Just click on Site Assets, Designer will tell you that the library is empty but also create the library in that process
Sharepoint Designer
When you already are in Sharepoint Designer you can also upload the picture(s) there using the Button "Import Files".
