Hey folks,

 

YouTube has the option of uploading a piece of art to act as a header for the channel.

 

I wanted to throw out a call to art and creative types on the site to see if there might someone who wants to take a crack at making an image that I can use as the header for the RPGMP3 YouTube channel.

 

The image has to be a minimum of 2560×1440 and will have the RPGMP3 podcast logo over part of the left side.

 

Cheers

Hal :hal:

Oh, if only my creativity wasn't restricted to words! I could be immortalized on the youtubes!

 

Alas, the only thing I could think of was to shout "PENIS!' which I imagine the youtube filters would not accept.

Since the RPGMP3Tube is all about Shattered Star, with some Shattered Star on top, couldn't you get a suitable illustration really quickly? As in, one you've already got in the archives?

Hey Monkey,

 

Got the resized very of MrGunPowder's Shattered Star pic and added it but I am not sure it worked. Can anyone confirm it?

 

Also there appears to be weird formatting issues. The pic has been large but it only uses a small letter box area for the top of the website.

 

Here is an explanation of the complicated and unnecessary situation - anyone manage anything cool within these restrictions?

Following your link:

"YouTube changed the original dimensions for the channel art. This video now has the correct one channel dimensions. The overall YouTube One Channel dimensions are 2560 px x 1440px but what is most important is the center of the image known as the Logo Safe Zone. Keep in mind your channel logo will float over the left hand corner of your Logo Safe Zone. Download the template to make sure your image is setup correctly."

 

So apparently, only the center of the image, with an area of 1546 x 423, will be displayed on all devices and settings.

Correct - but on computer screens the banner is wider. I guess we could just drop the site logo in the middle of the screen but I thought it might be a nice opportunity for our artistic types to see what they could do within the restrictions of the dimensions for various devices :)

 

If we have the logo in the middle and then some nice art stuff going on that expands out to a complete pic but makes sense at all levels that might be cool :)
