HTML is turned off for security reasons.

Please do not use html in your posts or messages. If you are copy and pasting something from another website and you are having problems with it showing, then it may have html in it. This could be in the form of a website link or a viewable image or an emoji or a special chacter. I am not sure this is the reason we have errors posting.

Some html code can be simply swapped with our Bulletin Board code by changing the greater than/ less than signs with bracket signs. Other BB code needs to done using the buttons in the advanced post editor.

  • Banner Fanart Thread

    I and some others personally think this would make this section a lot nicer if we had somewhere to showcase only Banner size art. Every fandom is welcome.

    Enjoy!

      Thank you for starting this thread buffylover. I've just set up my new computer and it's all working fine, so I shall be posting some of my artistic efforts soon. What is the best size for a banner on the site? Is it 500x150? And avs at 100x100?

        Yes, 500px x 150px will work but, truly it comes truly down to personal preferences mine preferred size is (540 x 230 px) so any banner size will do. Have fun!

                I´d go ahead with the first. Can you make it a little bit lighter ?

                By the way, can I place a request here ? I still need about 300 posts, before I am allowed to have a banner, but asking early, gives you more time to work on it ;-)

                        It's great to see how you're trying different combinations Pricey. I'd say the first or last have the best balance.

                        How are you resizing pics? They seem to be getting distorted in the scale. You can look to place a picture or texture in the background and then place pictures on top, blending out the edges and overlaying parts of the texture to create a 'whole' so that you fill the space but keep the proportions of the original screen shots intact (rather than stretching them). Also, with text, there are many sites where you can search and download different fonts. I often use 1001freefonts of dafont. If you enter the words in separate text boxes you can play with position/size/font far more than if you enter it all in one text box. Repeating key words in a different font but placing them with greater opacity behind the main text is a common tactic for building up layers in the background.

                        Did any of that makes sense??

                        I'm looking forward to seeing how these develop.

                          Thanks Stoney was the advice. I did manage to download a Font but I swear it took me 40 mins to download it and then another 3 hours to actually find and use it As you know I am technically challenged in the extreme lol. I'm also pretty heavy handed and slapdash, which doesn't help

                              I'm looking for a banner. My twinsy Priceless was trying to make one for me but has stepped down from the responsibility. Perhaps I drove her too hard or maybe she just doesn't love me the way she used to. If any of you could recreate my banner from the evil board that shall remain nameless because they banned me for loving spuffy I would be grateful.
