Logos Banners and Cover photos

  • November 9, 2020
    Cover Photos / Banners and Logos. Hei Folks.. For many people, logos are an important symbol of your site.. So choosing a logo that reflects your sites contents or purpose is important. here are some tips from my own experience. 1, keep it simple, can you replicate it in less than 5 actions and fast. 2, what looks great large scale will not always look great at 16px or thumbnail size. 3, keep colours or images to about 2 to 5 for a good effect (see point 2) 4, I create my own logo and banner images, had many failures but many successes. So its important to play around with ideas and try them on your dev site. 5, Don't be tempted with flashy logos from companies, the best logos are the simplest that you can create yourself. (see point 1) 6, Cover photos and banners don't auto size well on SE sites (like they do on other sites) so they can look squashed or shorten down to the central section on your sites. so keep images and banners like tiles and plain maybe. Thats all for now. mikel Logo Photo. Logo on site Header. 16px favicon. Admin team profile photos. Super Admin. Admin. Moderators. site security Team. Landing page / Sign in.

    For those looking for a good program, I use a few free ones.

    Gimp

    Inkscape

    Affinity Photo which is paid so I won't link it.

    With Gimp, you can open any sort of file and save as various types as well.

    Hei Folks... Im a wanted man... so im hiding here for a while.. Ive only gone and changed my site logo again.. Between me and you, ive done it several times this month.. From this to this to this to this to this back to this to this I like this one... Notice the sleek lines... when i looked at the last picture, the shape just apeared to me. i simply followed the main shape in one flow and this is the result. I like it, its simple... hope people like it. If anybody comes asking for me, I wasn't here, you haven't seen me..
