H2HWS

Postby wrveres » Tue Oct 25, 2005 9:07 am

I am trying to come up with a nice sig for the H2HWS ... and one for the winners too .
One problem I am having is the KB ... all of these run at around 30 KB and I need to cut it in half. I would like to do it without losing quality but that may be impossible ...
also I need to decide on some cool looking text ...


This is what I have so far ...
Keep in mind that "C" is an older one, and if that is what I go with I'll need to clean it up a touch ..

what program are you using?

One way to reduce the KB size to reduce the amount of contrasting colors. Try getting the background to be one basic color.

Another way is to cut back on the detail of the background.

Try playing around with the backgrounds, hopefully you have the players on a seperate layer than the background. Make the background a solid color - dark and see what the KB look like, should be fairly low. Then start adding lighting, globes and what not, but try to put each item on it's own layer so you can turn them on and off to see the effect each has on the file size.
