Is there a need to change the format? Have you done one using the same as the business cards as a background?

Gambo, you do realize that all top models have to be photoshopped to make them look thinner! :P

Never said anything about t-shirts :P :P :D

The business cards were just a black background which the cards came with. Im using a .jpg format for the above pictures but im using .psd to do all the work on. .psd is the default photoshop format. Not sure if ive answered your question there though :S

Pikey is asking about the format of the site. ie the look of it, not the file format you are using.
I get the imprssion you are having a "play" to see what is possible yes?

Although I swear full allegiance to our beloved master, I wonder about using any specific person to represent something especially such a general site such as ours as it can infer too much. Just the fact that Gambo is wearing a camo jacket or even his age will inadverently bais the site towards specific groups; or put off others.

However, I commend your skills and keen desire to see what is possible.

The reason I selected this particular picture was because this was the only picture taken of a particular person at the meet where they werent sat at a table. Its also a high quality picture too so hats off to Barry for the great shot ;) :)

I am trying my best to reach out to all age groups and even to non shooters who should try the sport. I cant please everyone with just one pic now can I ??? ??? ???

That is a a reasonable and honest reply. My thoughts are the same, a completely basic picture of the planet comlete with its address is all that is needed.

Hi Mrd, I'm really not knocking your efforts and I did think twice before posting my thoughts but they are only meant to serve good towards the forum. Me saying that "using a specific image is not a good idea", is not saying the image is not good or that your skills are to not be admired.

It helps that you have said that "You can't please all of the people all of the time". - You couldn't be more right and it's the reason for me saying what I have said. By using an image, any image, it can typically only appeal to a specific "people set" and in turn not appeal to others. It's this second element that is the issue, not the first.

I worked for 12 years for a 65 million turnover company, the later years as group marketing manager. I know only too well how easy it is to inadvertantly turn customers off (NO JOKES BITCHES) but it is inevitable if imagees are used that seem to focus on a particular, age, class, sex or social ranking.

Having said all this, I say carry on as they look great and can only serve to hone your already commendable skills. Just a piuty Gambo's mug spoils it.  ;D Did someone say Gambo's mug?
