Images & Words - New Banner (Week 40)






Welcome back to week forty and it is time for me to host again.This week we decided to do a new banner contest. There will be a poll up with in the next week so we can vote. We will be changing these now periodically so if you don't win we may still use your banner down the road. Please only ONE banner per person .... posting more then one will have all your entries deleted.... bottom line. Your banner may contain as many words as you like but must say Images & Words in bold letters some place on it. Please make sure you have a larger size 1200 x 600 and a smaller size 600 x300 of your banner available. Those are general sizes and don't have to be exact. Thanks for participating and all general weekly rules still apply

The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.

  8. Delightful - for wintertime - but a lot of us are wishing for springtime. Maybe we should have seasonal banners???

  9. Not sure I stretched it from a smaller size. I always start with 36 and stretch or shrink it from there with Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. The font was Kozuka Gothic Pro

  25. The colors are wonderful! If you don't mind my saying so, I think I would try to pull the shadowing closer together on the words. Will your program let you do that?

    ReplyDelete

  34. After travelling around and seeing all the entries so far, I believe we need an album of these fantastic Banners and I think we need to rotate the banners every month from the album onto the Images and Words blog if possible Joel.
    I think the talent in this group is awesome. Well done everyone your creativity certainly shines through
    A really great suggestion on your behalf here too Joel.
