New layout banner

Happy birthday to iberalla


I have a new banner! For the first time ever it is one that I have created myself, using my mediocre image manipulation skills and software that came free with the printer/scanner, and relying on a 'conveniently placed' pillar to hide the join. Please don't mock me too cruelly.

Speaker, your new banner does not download for me! I am distraught, but will try again later.

Could you see the 'Lonely on the Mountain' banner that I had previously?
evilawyer From: evilawyer Date: July 14th, 2006 02:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, and it downloaded quickly, too.

The 'Lonely on the Mountain' one is 62 Kb, the new one is 92 Kb; I wouldn't have thought that it would make much difference. I've just moved the image location from Scrapbook to my own website; can you see it now?

It never did download for me at LJ, but I have a short attention span, it's hot and no doubt the entire San Lorenzo Valley is clogging up the internet (we have one DSL line serving us all). Also, I use a crap computer. Because I'm cheap that way. But it showed up very pretty at GJ. Go figure.

I've just put the new one on Greatest Journal too (infinitely simpler!) - can you see it there?
evilawyer From: evilawyer Date: July 14th, 2006 02:42 am (UTC) (Link)
I can see it at GJ and I like it.

Very nice. I think the pillar actually adds to the composition by giving three elements—the images, the pillar, and the writing.

Thank you! I had wanted to use a sword blade sticking up as the divider but I couldn't get one to look right.

I can see how that might happen. The pillar is round, and brings the eye back to the images on both sides. A sword would demand attention for itself, and just disrupt everything.

It's pretty - well done.

Looks good - I like it. The top is hidden by the LJ navigation panel thingy, but I can see the whole thing at Greatest Journal.

Thank you!

You can turn the Navigation Strip off by going to http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/ and unticking the two boxes halfway down.

Unless you actually like the thing.

Very nice! I like the font a lot. :) *knows little of artsy things*

Mushu.

Thank you!
