Thanks PurpleChiten


I like where you're going with it, but I was wondering if you could start with the black background, bring the the symbol in with the white flash, then the writing in with the blue flash... if you see what I mean?

I'm starting to wish I'd had the symbol white and the writing blue to start with lol, then it would suit the flashes better


In any case, it's looking better already so thank you


Kaidan


Yup, I can work more with it!!! And I can change the colors of the symbols pretty easily!

....some of the other folks are filing in now too, they may be able to come up with something even better, but I'll keep working anyway because I learn a lot that way!

Oooh! I like the green one. I love that color. Y'all are doing an awesome job. What programs are you all using? I think I might want to have a go at having some fun later on too!

I downloaded it a few days ago but it made no sense. There didn't seem to be any import image function and the layering didn't make much sense either, I guess I would have to learn about it properly first.

To import you click "file" then "Open".

If you are putting an animated gif on a pic you use "Open in layers"

The layers simply allow you to add or alter a picture without altering the original but this really only matters in making gifs as jpg flattens the image. I am very familiar with it so feel free to ask away. If you have issues or dont understand I can talk you through it.

Edit to add: Originally I was proficient with Paintshop Pro and the change to Gimp was very difficult for me. It is a very easy to understand program, once you let go of the knowledge you have of other programs and understand the basics. Now I prefer Gimp to all my others including Photoshop.

By the way someone asked earlier if Gimp and Photoshop were compatible and I said no. This is not entirely true. Although Gimp has over 1100 brushes for download, Photoshop brushes work in Gimp as well.

If it helps any, I am going to give it a try as well and see what I can do...so you won't be the only one on a learning curve.


I am sure it will take some time else we wouldn't need these fine folks to make us avatars.

Sounds pretty good!!!

We could have a weekly theme then have the contests for special occaisions! (so we don't burn out on them ...suggestion from my Mod-buddy)

Several mods drop in and out, they may like what they see and give applause or something if they like on the weekly thing and we'll do the direct points for the contests. Sound good?

As the winner and champion....we'll let you choose this weeks theme!!
....it pretty much runs itself but we'll say you're in charge this week!


:::handin my gavel over to Marty::: You can choose who to hand it to for the following week!


DontTreadOnMe is my mod-contact and ToTheTenth is also very open as is Kinglizard I think, if a mod is needed for anything
They're not just Super Mods, they're SUPER-DUPER Mods!!
