Just going to throw this out there for now. I'd like to start gathering pictures to be used for possible inclusion in the KC Subaru banner. No details have been hammered out as to how the banner display will work yet. Some possible ideas out there are a monthly selection, random image from a pool of images, or seasonal images. Whatever way is decided upon will be done at a bit later date. Right now I just want to see what all is available as far as picture selection goes.

You must OWN the rights to any picture submitted.

Image requirements are simple. The image must be large enough to cover a 1024 ◊ 200 pixel area.
Photos will be scaled down and cropped if needed to get the best results from pictures chosen. (Not sure how we'll do this yet either.)

Anyway you can either submit your pictures as an attachment on the forum or feel free to link to images you have hosted elsewhere. Pictures chosen for use will be gathered from the submitter to get an original copy.

Let the submissions begin. 8)

That is a pretty banner shape, that adds a pretty big wrinkle.. :)

Call me old fashion but that'd be theft if I grabbed those pictures and started just using them. So out of respect I went this route as those pictures aren't submitted with the intention of being used for graphical work on KCSubaru. All pictures submitted for this will essentially be giving rights to use. If there are pictures in the member gallery that someone wants to use but not repost then they can link to them in this thread.

Heh, we can always change the banner size height if it turns out we can't get the photos to fit nice and neatly in the space.

So can we do a custom design that fits those specs, as long as it includes a photo of our car? Say I wanted to cutout my car and put a cool background design behind it?

Something like this. I know it's not to size, it was part of a web training project we did at work.

Image is full resolution (phone pic :evil: ) and should resize to the indicated dimensions without altering aspect ratio (see, algebra DOES come in handy). But...you prolly already have a better version of this shot on your own camera 8) .

That was my intent.

I'll check my other pictures when I get home to see if I have any that are at least 1024 wide, but that 200 pixel height requirement is going to rule out most of them.

I like this a lot. Maybe we could use it (or something like it) with member's cars pasted in on a rotation, and for special occasions use a banner like we have now.

In order to make the image swap to members cars on rotation, you would have to have a block on the banner that used a cropped image in that block. If you do it that way, you can allow members to upload pics and crop them appropriately right on the site. Otherwise the designer would have to make XXX number of variants of the banner, that could get tedious and cumbersome.

EDIT: Disclosure, I am a programmer. :D

It's a great idea, however; giving members the ability to manipulate banner images would be a feature that could easily be abused by someone intending to do harm. We could make it require all images submitted be approved but that would be a lot of work and make it harder to upgrade the forum software when updates are available. The way I imagine handling this task, when I get back around to it, is taking the provided images and generating tasteful banner collages of member cars.

Now granted if someone provides an image that scales properly to the needed banner size then I can use it by itself.

I might see if legacychick would like to help make up some new banners. I already have the code needed to rotate the banner but I haven't had time to manipulate images to make them the banner size.

Image requirements are simple. The image must be large enough to cover a 1024 ◊ 200 pixel area.
Photos will be scaled down and cropped if needed to get the best results from pictures chosen. (Not sure how we'll do this yet either.)


Pete, If you just send the original full size pic to Alan (assuming its the one we will use) then he can modify it to how it needs to be
he just needs the original full size full res. pic so that it looks good at 1024x200 I tried to make the one I posted that big but because I only have the 640x480 size one that was posted on the board when I tried it made it fuzzy and not good enough quality for our banner.

The original (first link) is completely untouched for comparison. The second is my first attempt at "tilt shift" in Photoshop...you're right Tuned Already, it's a LOT easier to get the results you want. And the tiltshiftmaker website makes you pay for full-res images :mad:
