Well... I am not sure on any! but our whole graphic team is absent, I have been asking for graphics for almost a month, so please make anything you can if you want something else. I might have used photoshop only 3 or 4 times before so I welcome any help. I am sure it is taking me double the time just because lack of experience.

Taking a break. Feel free to improve what it has been done and / or do whatever is left, we still need:

* Banner for eattheword's article
* Banner for Liam's article
* Banner for the comments on a Resistance Film
* Banner for the crossword solution
* Banner for credits

Also, since the interviews do not really go with any theme and they are a bit "off-topic" from the theme... what about posting this month EcR's interview, which is already done? Rx then for the next one. If so, we need a banner for that too.

Are you all happy with the Introduction / Editorial?

* Banner 4. Crossword solution

* Banner 5. credits


Thank you very much. Tell them this needs to be done asap/48h. Max 350px high, 500px wide.

I had a whole rambling post about how title is a rude word.

I can't think of a title for it... Considerable Purchases? The Ramblings of an Impulse Buyer? Fourth Quarter, Fall of Resistance?

I posted a request for help at Myres too in its Graphics request thread. Maybe that will help.

Wow, that is more than I had expected!!!

Tell Valkyrie if you could that we will put her name on the magazine. Should we also ask her to contribute? or is it too soon? Has anyone replied in MyRes offering help?

Could you please ask her to see if the pics could be reduced to around 500px wide x 350px high ? I would like to have them all around the same size, the ones in the Issue #1 were 612px x 200px. I was planning to change sizes and adjust all to the same size for this one, once we get all the pics. If I do that with her current pics, the font is a bit too small. I would rather have more regular/normal fonts, not sure about the one in the "Credits". The ideas are good and I like the crossword one, but it needs to be spelt right. I feel most pics are too big.

Banner 1: Cod/Resistance. Nice idea, but too much focus on the pics and not so much on the title, which is the important bit. Maybe just take one guy from each pic and put them together? One from Resistance, one from COD? Then the title. Too much going on, imo.

Banner 2: Nice, maybe just rearrange it just so the pic is small. "Readers Transmissions" I think needs an apostrophe after the s: "Readers' transmissions", if it means "the transmissions of/by the readers (plural)" or before the s: "Reader's transmissions" if it means "the transmissions of/by a reader (any, singular). Not sure on the blue font, too much contrast.

Banner 3, releases: Too much focus on the pics and not so much on the title. The idea is good. We could put loads of releases in the background and a big title in front. People do not need to read the game cases, just get a glimpse, then read. I like the "Are you ready?"

Banner 4, credits: it doesn't make it for me.

Banner 5, crossword: nice idea, too big.


You know what? That is just too much to pass on, I will send her the pm myself. Brilliant work all!!!

I have asked her to change the first three and leave the credits and crossword banner.

it can wait until I get home from work this afternoon. I should be home

request - I will send them to you as soon as I have them
finished!

I have said that if he could have it for tomorrow it would be great.

Last but not least -

Reader's Transmissions - 200 x 500

Font - Sans - Orange

Spoiler:
 

I think the first two need to be reduced in size, maybe just cut out the images around the title?

I leave this on your hands. I told Valkurie that I was going to post them here and if anything else needed to be done then maybe Monkey would contact her.

Where's banded?

Has she corrected the Crossword Solutions banner's spelling yet?

There are four different Tales ones. Are we supposed to pick the best? If so, I vote for the White Text one.

I told her to forget about the crossword and the credits one, because they are the easiest ones and I had some drafts half done. Yeah, they are to choose. Do you think we need to re-size them / crop them?
