I feel rather cheeky here but will come straight out with it!

I need one or two 468x60 banners and 88x31 button banners.... but I am useless with images and have no software anyway!! I am sure that anyone who knows there way around a prgram can probably drum one up in a few seconds.

I have an image on the homepage here (http://www.north-walsham.biz/images/sampletown2.jpg) that if it could be used would be really good. I know that the picture is somewhat bigger than displayed but I have nothing I can use to change it I am afraid. I dont need anything special by any stretch of the imagination I just need it to mention www.north-walsham.biz in text.

Either that or if anyone knows of a good online utility that could do this for me. I have googled it but the quality of some of the images seem rather shameful!!

Thanks everyone in advance!!!

I would just like to know if anyone could make a 468x60 and a 88x31 banner for me.

If they could incorporate the image from the main page in the larger banner it would be cool! Just need a simple banner or two!!

Sorry... I didnt really explain myself very well did I!!

doubt if you could fit much on the 88x31 but any reference to 'North Walsham' would be fine!!

Yes....

The button one is perfect.... I thought the quality would be a lot worse but that is cool!!

The big one I may have to think about more... because of the size I am a bit limited really!! Makes it look like a monster has come along and stood on the towns monument lol

I will try and think of something else for the bigger one.... but the button one is perfect and will be used.


Much appreciated!!

Maybe you could pull a button off of my site and edit it? :)

You'll need to use micro-text for 88x31 linking buttons (some other families will work fine on them as well): basically use pixel (or bitmap) fonts: http://www.dsg4.com/04/extra/bitmap/index.html.

Take a look at JavaScriptKit's Linking Buttons (http://javascriptkit.com/award.htm) for an example

Often, for linking buttons, you'll need to do certain effects with Color Dodge and Color Burn with the smallest possible depth instead of Screen and Multiply with the standard depth, in order to make the effect visible in smaller areas.
