Creating forum logos in 2.2

Post by KrazyTaco »

With 1.0.*, It was very easy to replace the logo in the top left corner of the board. It was a simple white background and an image file. But now I see that there is a new fancier, if you will, gradient color for the top of the page. Is there going to be a simple way to apply that color background to a custom logo? Im not exactly great at photo-editing, so trying to match that background seems fairly impossible at this point.

If you want to print some money - you should scan them in ImageReady and then - skip to Photoshop. Or somehow simmilarly... :roll:

You need a special ink and paper that only the government can legally use to make it real, but I have seen some very impressive fakes.

All you need to know is how to:

- work with images in layers
- copy/paste an intact segment of the background gradient

Nothing too difficult for the average graphic designer.

You could get rid of the gradient, you don't have to use it..

I agree with PowerSp00n, but the only problem that i see is that IE doesnt do Alpha blending. There is a javascript that will get IE to do it (i use it myself) but i can't rememebr what its called. Also you would need to include the JS once in all pages... you could posibly do it in a header file somewhere in phpbb or the themes.

Incidentally, scanning money is the one thing you can't do with Photoshop - at least, not US money. It's got fraud detection code that doesn't let you scan currency!
