- Created: 01 November 2013
The new graphic needs to be no larger than 600 X 120 pixels, and also will need to have a transparent background if the designer intends the website background colour to show through. For this reason the jpg format is not acceptable. PNG (Personal network graphics) is a suitable format.
If you do not have a graphics programme that is suitable for this design work "The Gimp" is a suitable open source programme. This may be downloaded from http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ . You can find a tutorial on transparent backgrounds using Gimp here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC5vdKuwTp0 and here is a tutorial on text effects using this programme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyrHGR1eXEM .

Good luck with your design work.
