    I'm practicing using photo editing software.

    I'll make avatars for any of you to use on the boards.

    Just give me a picture to use and some basic things that you want to be done to the picture.

    It's no trouble at all, in fact i'd love to have a lot of requests.


    I'll host finished avatars on tinypic and post the picture on this thread.
    I'm trying to get more experience using the software and giving the boards some much needed flair at the same time. :D

    Because I'm only allowed to post four pictures per post, I will now just spread my body of work throughout the thread

    Shame to you 30 viewers who didn't post :-(


    But here is how the requests should be made:


    "Hey I want you to have an avatar out of this picture

    [​IMG]"



    And I'll hook you up with something like this

    I don't get what you did to that picture other than a simple crop and resize? Maybe I'm missing something?

    [​IMG]
    Lets see what you can do with this.

    I played with brightness and contrast a lil bit, and hues/saturation.

    I'll see what i can do with that.
    Who is that anyway?

    My thought exactly.

    Yessir, you can!

    I believe you must pass the 51 post mark or something.
    That is the rule.

    Nice job, although the color scheme you have going kind of makes the beard seem like a huge blob, but that is probably unavoidable at this size and what I was encountering too.

    Yeah thanks.
    I could change to color scheme back, so you could just have the picture with the transparent background..

    And this next one is for all you guitar nuts on the boards. I hope someone uses this.

    And this is the original picture.
