#1 Help GL Design site banners (Contribution wanted).

If you're up for it, you can help GL forum with site banner.
This is banner for the actual site, not the banner ads that is used to attract Non-members.

Spec: .png, .jpg, or .gif file of dimension 1152 x 113 pixels (any narrower image will be repeated horizontally).

use this .xcf as reference (remember that a random logo will be placed over banner and the search box will be placed over top of banner).

Basically you're designing the bottom most layer in the .xcf (remember to hide the logo and search box before exporting as banner, they're only there for reference).

Banners should say 'GIMP LEARN' and 'Where we can all learn from each other'.

Currently we only have one banner and it looks like this (with logo and search box overlay on top).
(click on image to see full actual size).

With more banners, we'll have a variety of different possible combinations because of the number of logos multiplied by number of background banners.

Thank you for reading and considering contributing to GL forum banners.

Banners we have so far: styles/prosilver/theme/images/custom_headers/
