Nice Banners, All have the same theme.I would suggest that you remove those images off your account and place it on external image sources ... even if an average of 200 people view it, your BW is GONE! :) So, please be careful when you post images from your own website.This is also applicable if you have set an image in your signiture from your site.

ok i have used my old host for files


FAFNiR

as it is a good effort, try blurring the edges of the Altahost text, seems very pixelated =/

 

and if you intend to use those coloured (green / marone ) ones individually, they can be quite hard to read. spruce it up a bit if you can, if you need help with ideas on doing that, just ask =].

 

eg: you can even do a completely different theme to it.

Guys, the Symbol on the Right does not belong to me but to the INVISION. So, If I use it officially , it will be a copyright breach, Faf! the Animation is simply awesome.

Why don't we have a banner design competition? Whoever designs the best-looking banner for Xisto, as voted by the members and admin, gets additional prizes, like extra bandwith, etc?

Adobe Photoshop is very nice for about any graphics design.

Adobe Photoshop is a great way to create pictures even from scratch.

 

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

 

Adobe Image Ready [ Photoshop Animation ] hence the name, is better equipped for animation rather than painting (you can still do reasonable graphics even without photoshop - take a look at the banner above that i submitted, that was made 100% in image ready)

 

you can download a trial version for photoshop CS from here:

 

http://www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jsp - Adobe Photoshop 8.0 (CS) Tryout for Windows - 152MB

 

http://www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jsp - Adobe Photoshop 8.0 (CS) Tryout for MacOS - 250MB

 

I cant find the image ready addon's.. but they are most likely in those downloads above... not sure though.

 

Image Ready is also a great way for web-site building (your own sites ofcourse) because you can make your images such as tables, navigation bars, interfaces etc then slice up the pieces and easily code them in through html/whichever other format.. you can also pre-program the sliced pieces if they contain buttons, roll-over text/buttons for example, its mainly automatic, real great stuff - a must try.

 

Theres a thread in this forum that describes just that. - http://forums.xisto.com/topic/79667-topic/?findpost=1064272921 by jcguy

 

I really havent used any other programs except for macromedia flash (which im very nub at still =p ) so if you need any help with above, just ask your questions and ill try to answer them.

 

By the way, wizzywig, that looks quite nice, good for black backgrounds (such as your patriot website)

 

but perhaps.. i dont think you shouldve needed to spend 1 and a half hours for that =/..

But Adobe Photoshop can ber very difficult for first-time users, and it takes quite long to learn for beginners. It has so many functions and uses that can be quite overwhelming in the beginning. But I guess once you got the hang of it, PS can be very useful. It's regarded as the best graphics design program by professionals.

Just don't go and use Paint Shop Pro, I find Photoshop to be much better.
