    1024x PNG with transparency sent to TRay:

    https://twitter.com/RPSPlanetside2/s...72845057548288

    Edit: 300dpi as Boris' was still 600dpi

    Didn't bother with optipng. GIMP's output @ compression level 1 is far from lossy and the KB size difference between a GIMP PNG output at compression 0 through optipng and a GIMP PNG output at compression 1 is about 28% of a 3.5 inch floppy

    800 pixels square does seem rather large for an avatar, perhaps they meant 80? :P
    They may have done, but their website definitely says 800x...

    Well, oddly, there is no visible difference between both 256 and 800 when uploaded, but 800 is working fine so ill leave that one there so that it will (hopefully) scale better between applications.

    Checked it on both avatar size, and the larger featured channel size. If somebody is able to check on apps that would be good. Also, if somebody could check to make sure it displays fine on their computer. http://www.youtube.com/user/RockPlanetShotgun

    Here it is at 800x:

    Yeah, that's probably because it is resizing them both. Might still be worth finding out what size they are actually displayed at, so we can get it looking accurate. Does youtube show avatars at various sizes in different places? That might be why they ask for large resolutions, to scale down better.

    Yeah, as Rizlar said, I meant the size it is actually displayed at, so that we could upload it there.
    If youtube suggests 800 (which, my blind eyes clearly missed given its right next to the bloody upload button) fair enough.

    Anyway, I had already done it before you posted this, and posted an 800x image haha. Read up ^.

    From what I looked at, this is the case. Same with Twitter. In both cases there's not much you can do but upload the best possible you can and let their scaling do what their scaling does.

    It's not the neatest of scaling on either website, and they tend to lose the crisp line of the giraffe, but not much can be done there. The largest Twitter outputs is catered for by the 256x I uploaded.

    I have no idea whether the 800x YouTube asks for is because that's the largest it displays it as. I assume they suggest that to give them a lot of wiggle room.

    That being said, if it is the case that it is the 800x is what is sent to external apps, then it will be best to meet that. Because third party devs will be basing their scaling around recieving 800x images. But that's a guess.

    (Side note: If you look at the source image of the profile pics they are 88x for the old YouTube layout and 240x for the new one. YouTube churns out a series of scaled versions of what you upload, rather than scaling on the fly.)

    Fair enough. As long as we have a bunch of set sizes for differing sites, we are covered for all outcomes.

    Cooper, did you see my note about the text in the current website logo? The "rock" is offset to the left one space too much. Minor thing, but thought id point it out anyway.

    I agree. It should probably look more like this?



    (And yay how good does our logo look?. I'm well pleased with how it has turned out).

    @Paul & Sino

    Yeah, I knew that when I made it. The text alignment I ignored for now, Sino's output is what I intended. More importantly I need to decide whether to keep it plain white or do something to it.

    ----------
    Also:

    To-do:

    - A forum signature?
    Would anyone want this?

    - Any other places where we need a logo that needs special versions?

    - Smaller (80x, 50x?) versions, or can people resize as they need?

    - Font & Titles.
    I'll do this when I return to sort out the website header.

    - Extended Palette
    I'd rather not bother and elave people to spin off from the logo as they wish. The colour palette is there for quick access to html colour references.

    Further graphics:

    -Youtube background
    -Possibly youtube one layout header? Either similar to the site, or using elements from the YT background
    -Could produce a super sexy desktop wallpaper for funsies :P
    -Colour palette (including both included colours so far, and other possibly complimentary colours for others to use)
    -I suppose there is potential for accounts on places like Reddit and Facebook, though if those happen, they could be made then.
    -?

    If smaller versions are needed, It would be good for them to state that need so that we can have one version. Though its not a huge deal, there is a chance that this could promote several ever so slightly different versions of variable qualities.

    Either way, doesnt matter much.

    Would be good to include the background colours we use too, like the black and greys.

    Possibly other complimentary colours

    @Paul re: Palette

    If you wanna update what's there, please do.

    By "I'd rather not" I simply meant that I don't see the need to mandate specific colours beyond the basic ones. The black & planetary cyan should probably be added though.

    I may revisit / draw on the palette again when I'm working on the website. If you wanna suggest complimentary colours, please do.

    Theres no real hurry for it, so whenever is fine, I just thought I should mention those two colours being part of the main composition. Would probably be best to have it hosted on the site as it currently is, so if you are likely to revisit it at some point anyway, then ill just leave it be for now.

    Is this the tiff or psd?

    Also, was the black line a mistake? The way I read it, I thought he was mentioning that it was there for a reason. Idk why.
