    Ok this was discussed at the last Outer Rim Meeting.. but just so there is a thread to submit further graphics.We only have enough graphics for 6 months with the current ones.
    Just for future references.

    Default Graphic Dimensions

    Main banner image (foreground) - 764 x 110
    Main Background image - 764 x 110
    Curve image - 69 x 67
    Side Bar image - 32 x 465

    Please don't make any of these wider than that otherwise 1) The Webmaster has to edit them to fit on and 2) the wider the image, the slower the board loads up.

    This thread is only for submissions and ideas for submissions.

    For anyone who doesn't have much experience with web graphics, I could optimise them in Photoshop to make them download a lot quicker. Anyone else with Photoshop could do the same too. It can make a big difference to download times. If anyone's not sure how to do that then I can help out.

    I pulled the graphics from the cr board and i just had there any width, but it also slows down the bandwidth..making the boards slower to load up.. That's as much as i know.

    I thought DS had to edit some?.. they were too wide i thought..that's why i said not too wide.

    He did have to edit some, but that's because people combined all the parts with the main banner... The background images is tiled. Or at least that's what I thought. The one up there at the moment isn't as wide as the main banner, but it still goes all the way across...

    I'm currently working on making a new banner, hopefully better than my last one... :D We shall see...

    If you do it in Photoshop and you use layers (which is a good idea), then I'd suggest giving DS a copy of the photoshop file with the layers intact. I imagine that would make his life a lot easier if it's necessary to re-arrange or resize anything.
    Any comments from you Dan? What format would you prefer?

    Basically, if it is the right dimensions, and you have tested it yourself to see how it goes together, it can come as a jpg..... if you are unsure about it send me the layered original

    Perhaps someone (I can help if you want) should great a template so people know the exact measurements and placing of the bits. Either Photoshop (with guides in place) or a PaintShopPro file (depending on what people use) should be enough. Maybe even a jpeg or gif file so people can open it and start creating on new layers right away. That way there no fussin about, you just cut it and upload it. Just a suggestion.

    Ok, I finished mine... You can check it out here... What do you think?

    EDIT: I moved the banner into a different directory, just updating the link so it still works.

    Just curious as to if anyone else has designed anymore banners? The lego one has been there for awhile now, perhaps swap back to the others and keep rotating them.

    Now now people dont get pushy...... my computer has been suffering major problems at the moment and so therefore I haven't had the time to cut up and change the banner yet...... Hopefully it will be up tonight.

    I have just realised a slight problem....... All of the pics in the banner are linked to the http://outerrim.ii.net/ address, and as of early next week, that address will be no more.....

    If the powers that be could please change the address to http://members.iinet.net.au/~teleute/, with the same path after it it will still work. otherwise no matter what i put up it still wont work.
