Graphic artist? Photographer? Microscopist? Bored??

Post  acl5d on Thu Jan 20, 2011 3:19 pm

There are a lot of different ways to customize the look of the forum, so I figured I'd open the floor to submissions from our illustrious members... once we get some that is. tongue

First off, the background. If you have a picture that you like better, post a link (a couple good sites for image hosting are http://imgur.com or http://min.us/). Ideal background pictures would be either large enough to cover the screen or of a certain look that they wouldn't be extremely annoying if tiled.

Next up is the forum logo. Our current placeholder is that round picture to the left of the title at the top of the screen, courtesy of Don. If any enterprising digital artists among us want to take him on, post a link to your logo design.

Finally (and this may be a bit nitpicky), we can adjust the Favicon of the site. See that little green bacteria dude hanging out at the top of your browser? I made that here in a couple minutes. If you'd like to try your hand at it, give it a shot! They're pretty easy to make even for people with no artistic talent (like me) given that they're only 16x16 pixels. It's a little bit harder to link those, however. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • Create your Favicon at favicon.cc and click the "Download Favicon" button.
  • Open the downloaded .ico file in something like MSPaint.
  • Click "Save As" and change the file extension from .iso to .png.
  • Upload the .png file to any image hosting site (http://imgur.com works fine)
  • Post the link in this thread.

I know we have some creative people among us, so I can't wait to see what we come up with. Make us look good, guys! Cool
