Make some new banners for TTD

I'm ready to start a new 'style' on here that has a rotating banner. And, these banners are going to be made by YOU! I'm linking to a psd file that contains three layers - the gray background, the media picture, and the text. I'd like you to keep the background and text when you make your own banner, but the media picture is optional. After you make your banner, make sure to do a Save For Web so the file size is smaller. And then, when you are done, mail them to (I won't be checking this everyday, so please be patient in waiting for your banner to show up).

I think it should go without saying that I want you to keep these nice. No making derogatory banners of other users or bands or banners that can be considered offensive, derogatory, or not work safe because I just won't include them in the rotation.

Do a right-click Save File As on THIS PSD FILE (651 KB)

Please bump this thread if you have sent in a banner so that I know to go check out that gmail account.

Actually I just downloaded this and is only 651 KB.

Also for those of you who don't know or just prefer to use open software, Adobe Photoshop (PSD) files may also be opened and edited in The Gimp, so everyone can get involved not just Mac and Win users running Photoshop.

Re: Make some new banners for TTD

The font should be 'flattened' as a layer. You should have it as a layer and not be able to play with it as a text layer. It worked that way for me, anyway. Is it asking you for a font to use?

Re: Make some new banners for TTD

I would like to challenge someone to make a nice banner including pics of famous faces like like:
Bob Dylan
Phish
Greatful Dead
Hendrix
MMW
YMSB
Miles Davis
too many to mention, but check out my list at etree.org/Chachi420 and I think that those bands should be photoshopped into one banner called "jambands banner". Also, for this to work, people should be able to choose which banner they want. I didn't like the idea of the banner rotating to a style I don't like.
peace,
Chachi

Re: Make some new banners for TTD

I am lost here...are the rotating banners already happening? And if so, is there some way that I enable to them on my display?

* never mind, I figured it out!
