    Your herald needs sharpening, and it also looks better transparant, in the new color forums skins.

    Here is something that is slightly larger then the one you're using, and has transparancy & a few other things:

    Another good one, starlifter! :goodjob:

    I know you don't claim to be a graphics guru, but I like what you've been able to do with people's avatars, and I love your suggestions for forum styles.

    Glad to help. Yours turned out very good because you had a large, decent starting point. It looks well in all the new forum skins. :)

    I'm a techincal person, not a particulary artistic one. All work is done, so far, with just a screen capture program and an image viewer. :)



    @ anyone... I have been using Blue Skin today, and noticed that some people's avatars look less appealing in Blue or Green Skins (e.g., the light color background, squared off against BBS). Everyone may want to take a look at how their avatar looks in each skin. Transparancy might help :). For instance, gunning1's looks much much better now that it is tranparent, and not clunky.

    :cool:

    I had a size problem with my avatar when I first got it to..... but I believe it was duke who re-shaped it.
