Re: Idea for a new logo of "Nord User Forum"

Hey Alex, the text in white still shows artifacts, probably it is due to the antialiasing (so the chars are not 100% white pixels) combined with transparency; I'd keep the last animation(s) I did and see what Johannes thinks, makes sense?

HI, sorry for chiming in late, but great work guys! Just reviewed it briefly, and updated to test the latest trial.

Indeed the combination of transparent and relatively small pixel size is challenging. Maybe best to take the middle red tone for the whole background and then without transparency. If it was a bigger file would take more screen space of course.
Not sure. Any final thoughts ?

Great initiative btw!

cheers johannes

Yeah, I would try with red background, too. It looks great, only this pixels should be fixed. :thumbup: 8-)

I added the red background. Not solid like before but with a gradient like the rest of the banner.

The momentary logo has a twinkling in the white text - that's more distracting than the aliasing.

To add background probably is a good idea - as the PNGs have an alpha channel with smooth transition (0..255 tranparency) while your final GIF only has full transparency or none.

I see the logo has been updated. No aliasing this time, the color blends perfectly with the background but....there is two white lines on the upper and lower edges. I think I know the reason so I'm going to fix this little "bug" and upload the latest "OS upgrade" (to speak in a common language!!!)

Those 2 I think will work perfectly. There was a transparent border that I believe caused those white lines on the edges. I have removed that.

I will animate these too, but I am afraid that Johannes hasn't yet updated the logo, I still see the "flicker" of the STORE text of the transpartent-background one, which my last animation with red-background doesn't show.

EDIT: here's the animated gif based on your latest pics:

I see huge difference in comparison with yesterday. I see no flickering today and those white lines were absent yesterday, so I think there must have been an update. Hopefully Johannes will shine some light soon....
