    BANNER PICTURES POLL - REDUX

    Post  Carol on Wed Jan 12, 2011 12:09 pm

    Well while working on the banner (it's not that easy just to move it given some soft ware issues) I was looking at different pictures from glastonbury thor and came across these. We were also exploring what to write in the lower right hand corner. Merc was fiddling around with the above picture (no, it isn't the one from the other site) and will work on it later today or tomorrow. Meanwhile, I ran across these and we could also have some fun rotating with different sayings from you in that lower right hand corner. So even though this thread will be a poll it is also a request for some creative input as you can select the picture you like and what you want it to say. I have about 4 personal favorites out of the 12 here and will have a wee bit of fun with them.

    The poll is for you to select which picture you like best just so we have an idea of what folks prefer. And we can also rotate them. Here are the pics.


    1.

    2.

    3.

    4.

    5.

    6.

    7.

    8.

    9.

    10.

    Here are some ideas for the bottom tag line and a link to quotes as well. sunny


    Maybe the bottom tag line... "Where truth matters" we're not afraid to explore what's real or "Where truth is a priority" or "There is no god higher than truth." ~Mahatma Gandhi

    Some cool looking pictures.

    Just a technical side note. Some of the small images like 3,4 and 7 are only about 300-400 pixels in width. Because they are raster images and not vector when you enlarge them they will become pixelated and will loose it's resolution. The current banner you have looks about 800 pixels in width, not a bad size for a banner. I suggest when you look for images try typing in 'wallpaper' next to your key word to find a larger picture. Then all you have to do is reduce or crop the image without loosing any quality.

    If you need any help let me know.

    So the one up top now is number 8 folks. My husband liked number 6. I liked number 10 but think 6 would be good as it is brighter.

    Could we try the ones that people voted on as it's quite different once it's put into a banner ?

    I'm not understanding either mudra but do really like the text you have in the one illustrated in your post. What's really fun is when the members just make up their own and we rotate them out. I liked the one with the bubbles but wasn't sure about the text style used and don't know how to do this.

    Paul did a nice job with the banner on the mirror site but we couldn't find the font to match it.

    As Merc is the one switching the banners out maybe I need to get some training from him so we can both work on it together. Reunite offered to help and we could utilize her talent as well.

    I also set the poll up where people can go in cancel their vote and vote for something else.

    I like the 8 and I voted for it ;-)

    As I don't have any skills with creating banners or similar, I will not participate with my own cheers

    But I accept everything that the majority except.

    I like this quote :

    What if every pattern of color, shadow and light were like a single brushstroke on the masterpiece of life? When seen from the totality, would we really want to go in and remove all the shadows?

    I like #10 because of the mirage of colours...thinking about quotes...only words that come to mind are "Truth Illuminates the Soul through the Mists of Time". There is probably some other Soul that had those words in their head at one point or another too.

    Thank you mudra.

    You come up with great things to read at the bottom but we are limited with the number of words to be used (under 10 - 5 -7 is best).

    And thank you for researching the font info as that really helps us out at this end.

    Jenetta "Truth Illuminates the Soul through the Mists of Time" is really nice.

    mudra, you're on a roll girl. Lovely.

    Just have fun with it mudra and add as many words as you want. I think the font will have a lot to do with how it looks.

    I really do like the Zapfino font as it is very stylish. I tried the word 'the' in 12 font and the 'mist of avalon' in 20 font. Dramatic and nice.
    As Zapfino is italic perhaps the saying at the lower left would work well in italic too. Since I'm limited to a blank page here not to sure how it would look with the picture.

    It would be fun to experiment with the bubble pic. What program do you use to do what you do?

    The bubble picture is most inspiring Carol. I'll have a go with that one .
    Zapfino and Optima are my favorite fonts .
    Zapfino however occupies a lot of space and I am not sure therefore
    that it can easily be used unless we have very few words to apply them to.
    The program I used for the banners is Photoshop :" Text "tool
