i think that if you did it that way, it would make implementation the easiest..do you agree?

Agreed.

My major question now is if there's any room for play with the 2x148 piece. It must not have ANYTHING custom in it. It's specifically for the ad banner. But for some reason when you stretch the 2x148 to, say 400x148 (when resizing the browser window), a darker line appears in the gradient. I don't know why this is. If we could put a piece that's 100x148 or more, it might eliminate that. I can understand why there would be a tiny gradient piece to begin with. If you were running a 640x480 resolution, you would want as little extra as possible so the forum design fits. But this is 2009. People might run a minimum of 1024x768 and are more likely to have a 1680x1050 or better. There's room to play.

This is gonna be ridiculously hard without some free license stock Civic images. Those are the easiest to clean up. Unless some forum members want to go wash and wax their cars, then park them in giant light boxes to get some good photos...

I've just spent a few hours trying to clean up some of mine so they'll work like that stock 8th gen one I used. No dice. It's really tough to get them right.

I talked to itinerant about this but I lack the skills to do it...

I have an idea.

I was thinking getting rid of the little cutout on the left, and just having the logo centered in the center of the banner part we are editing, and then under it having a stock Civic from generations 4-8 (so, 5 small Civics lined up next to each other in an appealing fashion) (or we could do 5-8 if you guys feel that the 4th gen should be left out), and then having a second layer of the .gif file where each of the Civics turns into a cleanly modded Civic of that same generation.

It's a good idea, and all it requires is 10 images used with permission from forum members, 5 before and 5 after pretty much. I can do the animated aspect and if I do it right, the file size won't be huge. The only thing is that the changes might not be noticeable when I shrink the images down that far. I'll have to experiment. But then what goes on the far right side? It would be really weird to have all the pics on the left, then that huge ad banner gap, then nothing. I hate to say it, but the Honda Logo (c) would fit well under this new scheme...

It could end up being like so:

[4th gen] HCF logo! [5th gen] ------------[ad banner]---------- [H logo]
[6th gen] [7th gen] [8th gen]

We have a few 4th gens (jpnolan, hailchristian, etc)
We have a few 5th gens (danomatic93, trustdestruction, etc)
We have a bunch of 6th gens (me, sfazngiants, addiction2bass, justinwebb, etc)
We have very few 7th gens (that guy who just joined... and... uh...)
We have very few 8th gens (Apostle, ...that girl from BC that just joined... uh...)

So... now I need volunteers with high resolution before and after pictures, preferably with light backgrounds and good lighting. This may require a thread in the General Civic Talk forum. (https://www.hondacivicforum.com/foru...d.php?p=649246)

^could come in handy for the right side problem. Can you get a shot close to what's on the left side of the current banner? And be careful about what is visible through the glass?

Be sure to post them in the "permission thread" I created in General Civic Talk. That might help the legality part.
