New Rank Images
« on: April 28, 2010, 10:54:55 pm »
In case y'all didn't notice, I revamped the rank images!  The old ones were created in 2002-2003 (I can't remember exactly), for the launch of my very first forum, and when I set up the FT forums, I just used the same ones.  Since they were created at a time when transparent PNGs had pretty poor support, they had to be GIFs, which was very limiting.  Plus, I had relatively little Photoshop experience at the time.

So, with an upcoming site redesign, I decided to give them an overhaul.  Pawprints were the obvious choice, and had I been able to use transparent PNGs, at the time, that's what we would've had from the start (tiny pawprints in GIFs look like crap).  Also, since PNGs allow me to use partial transparency, I set them to have faint "empty" pawprints to fill out the images for ranks that don't have a full 6 pips (the originals had that too, but they were solid black and very distracting, so I removed them).

Thus, you now know the history of FT's rank images!  And, while I'm quite proud of these new ones, I always welcome any criticism or suggestions for improvement :-)

I have to say, after a long computer-death absence, these are a nice sight to come back too. my computer should be up in a few days, in time for the SCW.  Also, I like the new internet Icon.

Oh yeah, I missed that.  Good catch, Hale :-)

Originally, the white pip at the end was there because when I converted the images, my Indigo pips turned either black or blue depending on which shade I used.  So, rather than using a 7-colour rainbow like I originally planned, I switched to a 6-colour, and white was the only colour I could think of that didn't look like any other colour.  Since the pawprints are wider, I only had room for six of them, and decided to do something a little different with the seventh rank, if we kept it at all (decided to keep it after finishing the image for it) :-)
