Tutorials, Questions, and Support Banners!

Q: How do you make drop shadows? (Kayla Ann)
A: If you want a quick shadow, then you'll have to use a program like gimp or PS, but if you're using MS paint, you should make a grayscale pallet and keep on adding one color at a time in one line pixels below your banner. (EspeonEra)

Q: I posted my examples, waited some time, and checked back, but I didn't see my name up on the first post for workers, while someone else that posted at the same time did. Did I make it in? (My-little-starr)
A: Of course, everyone is allowed in, there are no restrictions when joining. I just didn't have enough time to post yours at that moment. (EspeonEra)

Q: What brushes should I download, where can I get em, and where do I save them? (D3VIL)
A: It really depends on what kind of style you like and use, but I recommend grunge and abstract brushes because they can look good in any banner. But you should hear everyone else out. Remember you can use Photoshop brushes on your GIMP, too. Just about anywhere. Just search em in a search engine, and you got thousands. Go to the GIMP folder in your documents and find the brushes folder. Simply move your brush extensions there. (EspeonEra)

I tried what I can and ended up with this. I miss my deleted photoshop. I'm still starting to learn how to make things out of GIMP. I know its too bright, and its my first avi and banner in gimp. Hope you like it!:oops: I made two in case something happened to the other one when uploading. It appears differently on the internet explorer on my computer compared when in gimp.

@ KA: That fish banner is simply amazing, cause you made it on Paint. a fuzzy border on paint... that's not easy. The Amy Rose one looks nice, and so does the Skitty one, but the background of the Skitty one looks a little bit croppy, it suddenly shanges from pink to black D:
And I think the Wigglytuff will look better if you didn't flip the image. Anyway they're great, keep up the good work ;)

Hey how did you do that grid thing in your render fr your sig?

After you've done the main stuff for your banner, make a new layer than go to Image > Apply Image. Then go to Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic, and set it to around 20. Lower the opacity and adjust to your liking.

That's how I do it, anyway.

here is a death note banner i made:http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh252/greensnakes_2008/DeathNoteBanner.png
P.S: I don't know who that is, I've never seen death note.

Well, even though Espi did not post if I am in or not, I guess I could still rate both of your new banners.

Kayla Ann: The signature looks pretty good but I am not fond with the text. It is hard to see.


Green:The character is named L, or Ryuzaki is his alias name. He is quite awesome and is the Hero Antagonist to the Evil Protagonist Light Yagami.

I like the background (Flip it horizontally to add flow.), font, and the color matching, but The choice of render is quite odd seeing we do not know is on L's shoulder. Plus there is no border.

GS: Try making the background better, and mess with the render a little. Then it'll look great.

... I find that incredibly hard to believe, since you said you're downloading GIMP. There is opacity, scanlines and brushes used there, and the font definately has layer styles applied to it.

Umm well i still have dialup and i was thinking i would try donloading it again......but it didnt work out so i still use paint!
and i did make it on paint...
1)i know how to do opacity.....just ask alana!
2)it is just luck... i was messing things around and it happened!

if you want proof just request a banner on my shop and i will make it and have alana watch me!

It feels like a splatter sig, though I do not like the fact you could see the transparent marks behind Giratina, if it is possible on paint you could fill it with black? I DO love how you tried lighting with Shaymi though.

If you cannot download the latest GIMP, try the older versions of it.
GIMP should run on any NT-based version of Windows (NT4, 2000, XP or Vista). Older GIMP versions (2.0.x) could also work with older versions of Windows such as Windows 95 but they are not supported anymore. The amount of memory can be an important factor, especially if you intend to work on large images. A minimum of 128 MB of RAM is recommended, but the more RAM the better.

God, I get ignored too much. Someone other than Kayla, please.
Well. I feel the render feels pretty slapped on, then the size increased, Filter>render>nature>flame on purple, slapped the render on again, scanlines, text, and a rounded rectangle cut.

I do like the simpleness and the flame, but I do not like the render as it feels a bit slapped on, but nontheless it is pretty decent and good. I usually never think of a rounded rectangle finish. I use em for Ninja Headbands.

Anyone comment on my sig? I loved making the headband and the wave effect. Took me 3 hours to get them somewhat the way I wanted.

Make a new border click ctrl+A. Make sure foreground colour is black. Go to edit.stroke selection. MAke the pixels 6 and then click ok. Change your foreground colour to white. Stroke selection again but this time use 4 pixels. CHange the foreground colour back to black. Now stroke selection again but this time use 2 pixels.

png makes it clear, jpeg makes it blurry and not attractive, gif makes it a coll looking thingy, and bit changes the color schemes

I think it'd be really fun to join this, and maybe improve my banner-making skills. (If you can even call them that lol)
I use Photoshop Elements 7, and it's kinda confusing, so I don't know half the tricks yet, so yeah. I can make avatars too, but am still starting. My first avatar is the one I'm currently using. n_n
Here are some examples. (Most are from like a month ago when I was super nubbeh.
http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd51/CornNerfer/GhostBanner.png

Best banner I've made so far ^.
Not many fancy effects, but I like it. n _n

http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd51/CornNerfer/VPP.png
A very basic banner for my VPP stats. I liek Kirby. :>

http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd51/CornNerfer/AbomasnowBanner.png
A clan banner I made a month ago. This was my (2nd...3rd?) banner, I still didn't know many tricks, and used Tombi's guide for that, acually. (I forgot to add a border!! XD)
I still really don't know about text effects and such, so any constructive critisism is welcomed. :D
EDIT: Darn, I hope it's not too late to join. D:

Woo! The main thing I want to learn how to do is those amazing backgrounds, like in Issac's Walrein banner. I always end up using a gradient and maybe a glass effect or something for my background, with some renders and motion blur on low opacity. And text effects.

You can hardly see the render. Maybe if you highered the opacity of it, the banner would look better.

I made it so the text would pop out, and so Gengar would blend in to the "Shadows".
Looking back on it though, I think that I shouldn't have set the render to Overlay setting. It blends a bit too much now. D: I'll remember that for my next banner though.
Btw, how do you make a grid pattern? I'm going to make a steel banner later, and I think that would look really nice.

I've read every tutorial on pe2k and then some, it's just nobody uses Photoshop Elements 7. Always some other kind, where the features they say are there... aren't.
Backgrounds are my weak point. I've tried looking at some tutorials for that too, but no dice. :|
The relicanth banner is acually supposed to be plain btw.
EDIT: Here's a banner I made for another forum. I think the colors with the cloud effect made a really cool magma background, but yeah, I just can't seem to make anything that 'pops'
