Scenes for Neowin

After the upgrade it will be possible to change the header to suit your preference, we've included a few examples but the subject of copyright will crop up, we need to have images there that don't cause issues for us in the future. So.. Before we launch and the short time after it we're asking members to submit scenes for us to include in our customize section. Any that are submitted must be free to use and by submitting you agree to waiver all claims on the image.

This is a great feature and personalizes Neowin somewhat for everyone.

To clarify the feature, it will not be possible to upload your own image to use in the header, if we allowed this it can be abused (ie: going into a shop, logging in and uploading a pornographic image for all to see). They will be uploaded by Neowin staff for inclusion.

Please view examples below:

Default header:

Custom "Space" header:

Custom "Space2" header

Dimensions for Scene headers need to be 990x85 px

You do not need to make the tabs or Neowin logo, as you can see below, the examples are simply backgrounds.

Remember: Any images used may not contain copyrighted material, so please try and be creative and use your own creations. The two examples below may be used for dimensions and tab placement.

PPS: Scenes do not work on the forums, because the forums are not fixed width. This is a main page feature only, unless we can come up with something for future use.

To help you design, you can use the following Scene template overlay to see how the other header elements fit on top of your image. When submitting to us, however, we need the image alone

Your letting the features go too early! There has to be some suprises ;)

Do the tabs and Neowin logo automatically import onto the image as they're transparent..

Or do we need to make the tabs and the Neowin logo too?

I've got some pretty spiffy ideas already kicking around in my head.

The images, as long as the dimensions are kept, automagically work with the tabs and logo ;)

Anyway we could add our own tabs and logo? *Hopeful.*

Edit:

Here's one to get the ball rolling:

Actually I had an idea for a pencil / hand drawn / crayon drawn logo and tabs.

That makes more sense, but there needs to be consistent company/site branding.

Says who?! This is all about customization! I'm all about customization and I've found something I can really participate in on this site.. without bombing out within the first month. :rofl:

Thats nice, remember to try and make the design fit with the tabs and logo kinda like the space ones do in the examples.

So you get another example of how the logo and tabs sit over the header bg.

I like the idea of a crayony logo. Or a green Tron-style logo :D

Just a heads up, scenes also work on colors. So if you want to have the red logo + site, you can have that + your bg.

Timan, perhaps you're able to mock up a PNG overlay they can use to test whether the designs work with the tabs?

No - the tabs themselves aren't customizable.

We're way ahead of you Rob ;)

Right, by my calculations, the Neowin logo should be in the middle of the spiral here.

This is yet again another one of my fractals.

I hope this one overlays the way I intended it to!

Install GIMP, PSDs work there, unless you're attached to Paint.NET. :p

Someone can convert the PSD to a transparent PNG presumably.
