banner request: Colorado by Nuit and Blue Magic (this doesn't have to be on banner necessarily)
Short description of the story, including main characters: Joe Byrne and a OFC called Sarah. Has a bunch of other cowboys too. AU FF . Late 1880's. Joe escapes the bullet and ends up in America. In Colorado..sort of keeping moving, we don't know quite why but he is edgy and unsettled. Gets work herding cattle and finds some soft skin and some blackberry crumble with Sarah.
photo shoot suggestion:
specific picture(s): Ones on horses/landscapes
color suggestion: earthy
text suggestion: Title of FF
specific artist request (if any): No but I do like a kind of stark style- Joe is very beautiful and that speaks for itself.
banner size:
Hi dear, I have tried to make your banner.....let me know if you like or you prefer some changes.

Lovely choice of pictures Mayfrayn! Just right for the story. It looks really how I imagined it. Is it possible to see it without the second face? I am not sure that it is necessary. Sorry to be a pain...

I have changed the banner, sorry, it is a little different form the first because I have saved as photoshop file the last version of the previous banner and I had to remade it.
Do you like this one:

That is perfect! Thank you very much! I do prefer it without the second face, as I said I like things looking fairly plain in a way, though of course sometimes those are the hardest right? Thank you for doing this- is much appreciated XX will go and post it in the thread directly.

Eta- looks fabulous mayfrayn- thank you very much indeed!

Thanks Kat, that's fab - I'll be thinking about them next week and seeing if I can come up with appropriate photos etc. for each piece - I appreciate the offers from all of you.

Mayfrayn, I was wondering if you might resize that banner you made for me if needs be (I have NO idea about these things at all, sorry) - I'm posting this story on another board and they require a smaller banner than we are allowed here - can you just bring it down to a 550 x 403 pixel size please if possible? I don't know how to do it, and I can't use it until it is this size, not over there anyway. Thanks so very much!!

I'll be putting my thinking cap on ladies, stay tuned. This is SO exciting, to finally be able to do this - I did ask once on another site but no-one replied so you can imagine how overwhelmed I am by the enthusiasm here! I love this place and the helpful friendliness - hugs to all.

cheers
Luna

Well, I can resize the banner, but if I put the height at 403 it will be distorced.
Is it the same if I resize it as 550 x 300 pixel?Or 550 x 350, even if 300 of height will be better....

Here it is at 550 x 275... that way it wasn't distorted... just a bit short:



May, if you use Photoshop, there is a box called 'Constrain Proportions' in the image size window. If you check that function, files you resize will not distort. If you change the pixel width, the height will automatically readjust along with it, and visa versa.

Thanks Mirk, I know the box of "Constrain Proportion", it's very useful when I use Photoshop!
