It is perfect because the main subject is between the DESKTHORITY-text and the links on top-right.
Perfect! You heard it, folks :D

Removed a bit of junk (EXIF, thumbnail and XMP data, whatever that is), converted to sRGB and moved the switch a bit to the right:
:o

ps: Mine shows more artifacts, but this is only because Adobe RGB has flatter colors when viewed on a monitor. Adobe RGB is good for print, but only if the printer is capable of that format.
:shock:

I'm terrible at photography but I quite like how these turned out, I just found it hard to make them fit into the 980x190 canvas. Originals can be found here : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jafsou4sjppl4c4/F3cX9Ff50F

Also, the yellow tinge is the keyswitch, not the photos.

Please more the switch a bit to the left (see my post above), so it is between DESKTHORITY and Spy IRC ....
:-)

ps: You are much better than that canonjunk guy!

I think I've perfectionised this:

I'll see what I can do about getting it further to the left :)

Although, the sun's gone down now so lighting is poor.

Just try out 'my' version and you see it fits perfectly!

Ah I hadn't seen that. It does look much better. I think it'd be even nicer if the stem was dead in the center of DT and Spy. I'll take another photo tomorrow when the sun's up :)

Yes, but I moved the switch a bit to the left (easy task in GIMP), so the switch is not obstructed with the text above and below.

But carry on! Please take more header pictures!

How are these? I'm having a lot of trouble getting it to 50kb without making it look like shit though.. Anyone got any tips? Original can be found in the same dropbox folder I posted before..

I personally like 3.jpg the best :D

Hint: switch on JavaScript, then reload the page, then click on any 980x190 pixel image within this thread and you can see how it looks like as DT header.

Please don't forget to switch JavaScript off again.

Boring and too much data. Please use TIFF to take up even more space!

The hard part of making good banners is trying to guess where the Deskthority logo and other text will lie. Anyone got a good mask for that so we can live preview in our image editor while we work? I tried making my own and it kinda sorta works, but not quite.

Huh, I thought none of the pictures with the clear top MX fit at all. And now the by-night picture explains why. The spy label is more to the left in my browser than 7bit's. And it of course depends on how long your username is.. *doh*.

matt3o's is not sharp enough.
