Title: Its time for change, submit your images! 10/9/11
Post by: Tyler Bishop on March 22, 2009, 12:35:43 PM
Hi guys, It's long due time for a change in the random images on the forum header.  So post any pictures you would like to see up there, Ideally the picture needs to have a good rectangle perspective area like the images here have.

I look forward to seeing what you post.


Actually I want to modify the forum, Send me all the pictures in 150 x 1200

What is the aspect ratio needed?
Title: Re: Its time for change, submit your images!
Post by: s-driver on March 22, 2009, 03:18:37 PM
Is the header going to still fade out on the right like it does now?  That way we can get the image so it don't need to be flipped like that CSX one. :D

I will have to edit a few of mine. Does it matter where the content came from? (I have two in mind that would look pretty good, but neither of them are from USLW, though George skinned the one locomotive.)

What is the aspect ratio needed?

600x150 is the current dimensions, and I presume Tyler's probably gonna keep it that way...

I've got it set at 8x now.  I'll try turning it up.  There seems to be a problem with antialiasing in Trainz and the newer nvidia drivers.  It's been discussed on the Auran forum.  I'll see what I can do about it.   :)

I don't know if this is any better.  Antialiasing is set at 32x.  I don't think there is a solution for this problem at the mo.  It appears that Nvidia doesn't care whether their vid cards work with Trainz and Auran doesn't care if their software works with Nvidia vid cards....what a buncha wamsers!   ;D

Tyler...I have a question.  Why doesn't the webpage fill the whole window?  That makes it difficult to post screenshots bigger than 1024 pixels wide.  Even the 1200 x 150 ones don't fit on this screen.  They fit at the top but not in the body of the page.  I'm talking about the gray bars on the sides.   ???

I know, I can pretty much pin an engine to its author just by the texture style and quality.  Bill you and justin are damn perfectionist so its easy to spot your stuff :D  ;D

I was wondering if anything like this would happen; hence my use of USLW locomotives... its a shame but I see your reasoning

I have no problem advertising other peoples things if they have treated me the way I should be.  I don't like frank because of things hes done to me in the past..  I try to help the guy and he ****s the pooch.

PHOTBUCKET not Photoshop. For shame.  The basic service that photobucket provides don't allow larger than 1024x768 or 1 meg image size depending on the settings.  Go to the "more options" menu and select "1 megabyte file size" and that will correct your problem.

George...looks like you have a resolution or antialiasing problem in that shot.  Can you fix it?  I did...after spending about 3 hours of my time and precious bodily fluids messing around with my vid card settings.  I tried everything imaginable including downloading and installing the latest version of nhancer.  Finally, as a last ditch effort, I switched from DirectX to OpenGL and...voila!...all problems solved.  I wish I had tried that first!   ;D  Oddly enough, I made a banner very similar to that one yesterday but didn't submit it.  I wasn't quite satisfied with mine.   :)

IrfranView is an image editing program. PhotoBucket is a image hosting web site David. :D  To make a screen shot the correct size you need a image editing program that can cut and past or crop the image like Photo Shop or Gimp.  IrFranView don't have that ability.  You can change the image size with it but it will distort the image by stretching or compressing the image.

I have a question for the great and powerful webmaster. What is your view on non TRS artwork, as in Pencil and paper? If you want, I can draw up a few railroading banners for USLW if someone will give me the aspect ratio in millimeters. It will be black and white, pencil on paper since I do not have the funds to buy any professional colored pencils other than the poppy red one that I already have. (they are about $2.00 apiece)

If you aren't interested I fully understand by the way.

just work in a 1x8 scale, say 2" by 16" and resize it once you scan it. There is no certain ratio of mm to pixle due to the different range of quality in scanners.

(I figured that if you like the one that I made, you would probably appreciate some DRGW artwork for your site. I currently have about 13 different candidates for a DRGW banner after my current one is completed.)

Great banner, Andy!  As I watch them go by, I notice...there are some very distinctive styles.  You can tell who did that one...and who did this one...just by the way they look.  Is that "artistic" or what!  Very cool!   :)

Cheers,
Fred

Well, here she is guys. I had to do some darkening in photoshop to get her to show up after the scan. Here is hoping that this is the right size. (1200X150 made it kinda small, but that is what you asked for.) I also hosted it on hostthenpost like I was instructed.

Anyway, I hope that you like it Tyler, as I worked about 9 hours on it. +1 to whoever can recognize where I got the influence for the layout of the shot. (Also, just incase, the locomotives are not drawn from the source that the layout came from, but rather a locomotive from railpictures.net.)

+1 to Rugrat. I am so used to looking at that pic in black and white, that the color was a shock. I really hope that it is good enough to become a header. If not, just let me know why so that I can improve.

I just wish that I could have posted what it looks like on paper. It lost a little bit in scanning.

Sigh, it probably isn't good enough. Sorry for wasting everyones time. Oh well, maybe I will be better in a year or two.

I don't know what your talking about Jade, I think it's fantastic!  If you want me to make you feel really good, I will try and draw the same thing as you did.  You guys will have a good laugh at that one!  Art is in the eye of the beholder so to speak, I've seen elephants randomly splash colors onto paper and that sells for thousands.  I like it, in fact you should do a few more.  Plus, who the hell cares what anyone thinks, you didn't lose any sleep last night did ya?  Good, that's what I thought.   :)

Actually, I fell asleep at around 4:30 last night due to my art. I was busy working on a project that I have been working on for a while, and I looked up at the clock, and was shocked at how late it was. I seems to be happening alot lately. ::) I have some other banner designs planned, I am thinking of a Rio Grande one for my next banner art.

Anybody can post a perspective pic here for the banner.  That won't mean it will be used in the banner but you can try.  Just make sure it meets the size requirements of 150x1200 like it's mentioned in the first post.  Adding a little sharpening to the image helps to.

Here are some more screenshots. They are in the correct resolution, but don't display correctly for some reason. I re-uploaded the photos to Photobucket with the new options and edited the post so they would display. I did the same with the post that is the second one above this.

Your using Photobucket.  Check your "Options" settings.  Change it to 1 mb file size instead of 1024x768.  That is an option available in the free version.  Other than that Photobucket will automatically re-size the image so it is under the size selected.  The images already uploaded will stay the same but anything after you change the options will abide by the new settings.

Guys, I absolutely love what's happening with the headers. I do have a question though. What can I do to my game/integrated graphics card settings, and what can I do while editing photos to make my headers look as good as the rest? Every time mine flashes by, I think, "What can I do better?"

Thanks for the input guys!

Hey Maverick just an FYI.  Header images need to be in this size 1,200px × 150px and have to be at full settings visually.  No jagged edges, etc.  Max all your settings and make sure anti-aliasing is at full max.  I would be happy to add them at that point.

Thanks!

Mike

Header images need to be in this size 1,200px × 150px

Still not the correct size.  See above to Andy's pics, they need to be that exact size.

Thanks

Sorry Mike. On my Paint.net I set the banner for 1,200 px. x 150 px. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Let me try and figure this out. Sorry again...  

EDIT: got it! Thanks Fox1 you were right. Its not late here on the West coast, but I sure am exhausted too.

by default photobucket restricts the dimensions & will automatically resize your images down to fit. You can go into your settings and tell it to restrict via size, where it will not resize all your images that exceed the dimensions set before (I don't recall if it re-compressed @ a lower quality or resized, or just didn't upload it). Alternatively if you want to stay with photobucket you can also get a premium acc't which will allow you to not restrict file size.

I had the same issue and I felt like a total  :knowitall: ...not.  What you need to do is not use Photobucket. It automatically re-sizes the pictures. Use hostthenpost for uploading banners. It will keep it at the size you prescribed it to be when you made the banner in whatever program you used! But as Chip stated, make sure the size is: 1200x150
