YES!!

Firstly- easy on the decorative typefaces they are tacky and unreadable. Silly script, mixed with comic sans and countless others are an assault.

"KISS- keep it simple stupid" dont use any more then 2 typefaces, if you need to.

Secondly- colour of type, very important some also are unreadable.
Thirdly- DON't STRETCH IMAGES BADLY it looks terrible.

I could go on about alignment and shit , but I know it's me being picky, and not everyone gets poked in the eye by these things like I do.

There are sites to make banners, some good, some, not so much. Photoshop is ideal as you have full control.

Pm me, I can help you, if you like.

Also this maybe belongs in another thread, not the chat thread really. It's more about stories help/author's help rather than the chat forum.

If it doesnt work, I'll cry.

Okay, you need to enter this in the field:

[url =http://www.lushstories.com/stories/straight-sex/mr-officer.aspx][/url]

Remove the space between "url" and "=" and then post. It should work now. I hope.

Edit: Bollocks.

Remove the space between lush and stories too.

If you're not Photoshop savvy, you could always try an online banner maker:

Go BIG or don't go at all.

At least 750 pixels in height should be sufficient though.

You could also add a deep quote. Bitches love deep quotes...or is it deep strokes? I get the two confused sometimes. dontknow

I think you'll also need 20+ posts for it to appear.

Thanks for that, Nicola. I can't believe I kissed* that.

Crazy has made him a great banner, so hopefully we'll see it very soon!
