Could have been it a legal trial download. A demo perhaps.

Starting to get the hang of it, I think.

And I tried to get that GIMP but couldn't figure out how to download it. Mirror problems. But then again, I didn't try too hard to figure it out either. Already grabbed me a copy of CS2.

I've used Gimp once or twice and personally I think it is a replacement for MS paint, and not Photoshop AT ALL.
The problem is that I'm running a Windows binary under Wine (remember, Linux user here), and for some odd reason Photoshop won't minimize properly and I'll be stuck with those palettes over my other windows, which makes it unpleasant to try and use other programs while Photoshop is open (but it does come in handy when I've done a render in Apophysis and I'm trying to remember what background color I chose and input that into Photoshop). So I only use Photoshop when I'm going to be sticking around in that window for a while working on nothing but that picture. If I'm putting in one picture, then going back to my web browser to find something to fit the space, then going back to my image editor, it makes more sense to use an image editor that isn't going to block the sides of the screen.

If you'd like, I'll take some screenies to show what the problem is.

Oh, and GIMP is a whole lot more powerful than Paint (I had to use Paint for my Organic Chemistry projects, so I know what it can and can't do). Actually, GIMP has some filter options that Photoshop doesn't (or at least filters 7.0 doesn't have--can't speak for CS and CS2). Some tasks are a bit more painful to do in GIMP, but GIMP can do a vast majority of what Photoshop can do.

Re: Make some new banners for TTD

If you need changes made to your banners, you need to send them to the email addy I supplied. I'm not reading threads right now, but I am taking care of site email (I have other shit going on in my life at the moment).

And Brian, I think I've put all the banners in rotation so far, but I'd have to look to see if I've missed some, which is entirely possible right now.

So, is it there? Sorry, I'm just not up to double thinking right now.

Re: Make some new banners for TTD

I just sent an e-mail with the final, definitive version of my SFA banner. No images of yetis in this one because the "wooks" had a field day with the first version of the banner, and the second version wouldn't be any better. Besides, the color balance is so much nicer on this one.

Re: Make some new banners for TTD

How come all I see is the original banner. Do I need to click something to get the rotating banners?

Never mind, I took a smart pill and figured it out.
