    Being as the winning Banner will be our official doberman-chat.com Banner i will have to say only dobermans are allowed this time.

    I also wanted to add that any body may use pictures from my own gallery if you do not have any of your own to use

    But we do have a contest in the works where you can use pitbulls, Dobies Rotts etc etc.

    I'm assuming the sample banners posted in the first post are the sizes we're supposed to use, soo... here's my first attempt. I wish I had more "head room", since dobes are tall dogs... but perhaps I'll try a few more times before the contest closes. :)

    Nothing fancy, just something quick... I'll try to do a few more later.

    By the way... I'm not entering this contest just adding an example.

    ok thanks VD and um Jan I think. I may have to borrow pics of your dogs. I am trying to talk the b/f into a Dobie pup sometime maybe this year or next so then I can contribute to the Dobie pics. :D:D I am working on the banner now. Oh wait how do I borrow y'all's pics?? Just right click and "save pic as" to my puter right??

    Looks good Deladobies!
    Yes, anyone is welcome to use any of my pics if you think they'll work for your design.
    Here is the link to my Webshots album if that's easier. The pics there are a bit bigger than they are here, so it may make it easier to work with.

    I use Photoshop for my personal banners too. You can easily start with a merge and build from there. I think certain paint shop programs will allow you to do many of those things too.
