Re: Banner designs
Hi, this has probably been mentioned before but is there a template for these banners with the original font? also what is the maximum file size/ dimensions? thanks.

Re: Banner designs
Artwel,

The size should be 750 pixels wide by 150 high, and the original text layout is here.

The banner thing started as a Friday Challenge, back in February 2009, as a suggestion from a member. The original entries are here.

I'd just like to say a big thanks to James for all these new banners - and to put in a plea for some by other members so I can alternate them with James's entries... otherwise it's starting to look like he owns the place!

Re: Banner designs
Thanks Steve, what about filesize? I noticed some 100kb+ banners here

One or two of James's slips through the file size net - I try to keep the size down so that images load faster.

I've put a limit on 100K for images uploaded to my server, simply so it doesn't get clogged up quite so quickly (a lot of files are now stored here). If you want to upload larger images, then use a facility like Photobucket to upload them to.

For banner purposes, though, do try not to let them get too big! Readers know that when they load a page like the Friday Challenge it's going to take a while with a slow connection, but I do want the front page to load quickly.

Re: Banner designs
Here is a new banner I made. I have not created anything for a while so I thought I try to come up with something.

Re: Banner designs
Great Scott! Artwell how many gigawatts are needed to power your creation?

How ironic that the forum system picked the most appropriate signature from my random set of four!!!
