Layout and Header change!

TanTango a few hours ago ^^

TanTango a few hours ago ^^

After much pondering, I finally decided to change my banner, but as you can see, it’s still Kagamin on the banner. ^^; The new banner is a product of my Photoshoot experiment + photoshop magic.

Below is a quick TLDR; guide to how I did the banner (if any of you are interested ^^; )

Holding out

Step 1: Getting Original Photo

Background editing + Adding text

Step 2: Cropping + Background editing + Brightness + Adding text


Step 3: Brightening up Kagamin

Step 4: Going crazy with brushes <3

Step 4: Going crazy with brushes <3

It’s been a while since I’ve fiddled around with Photoshop… and now that I’m doing it again (since I’m also in charge of Hyper Parfait‘s graphics) I am loving it again. X3 Still have a long way to go hardcore photo-editing wise though. :3

Any comments on the new banner? ^^

    I like it, nice job ^^. I need to update my blog theme and banner too >_<

    Neat :) I also like the older one slightly better.

    I would suggest undoing the glitter-blobs behind “Photo journals”, as it gets in the way of reading it?

    @anonymous_object: Thank you! ^^
    @Guy: Thank you! Seems like the first one appeals to guys better XD hm, I see. It was pretty readable to me so I didn’t change it. Thanks for the suggestion ^^

    This theme seems to be used by everyone. I am very very very tempted to use it too – I like the comment box!

      I am actually fond of the comment box as well.
      I like this theme and the first one I used… mostly because they look clean and the colors aren’t too busy that it’ll be flexible for any kind of header :3
      I chose this as the new theme because of the tabs/pages ^^

        I wish I had these comments in my theme. The only real annoyance I have with my style.

        What I want:
        Custom header.
        Wide main page, or adjustable width.
        Spaces between lines in comments.
        Clean sidebar.
        Blueish background at the sides, not a horrible murky grey.
        A nice “X Comments”, away from all the tags.

        Some have most, but miss some. A real issue is that this theme for instance is even narrower than the one I use, and would require redoing the layout of most photo posts.

        There are a couple nice ones, but with ugly background and/or sidebars. And I’d have to re-do my banner to fit, obviously.
        Some theme designer needs to ask me what’s right!
