Well... I have tried and tried to make nice banners for myself. None of the ones I've made have turned out to be anything I'd want to show off


I like being able to rotate different banners each month for my LB Ad (the banners above and on the salesboard). I wanted one to show off a couple of my 2008 foals and Mary Lou's rate was so reasonable!!! The good job Mary Lou does and reasonable rate makes me feel :DOH! :DOH! :DOH! when I think on the hours I spent trying to make a nice ones myself!!! Like a dog with a bone, I kept trying and trying!!!


Just am proud of it (below) and wanted to share if with you all... a little sneak peak. It will be up in the month of May



And, you may have seen most or all of these before, but here are the other great ones that Mary Lou made for me:

-
-


-
-

And for what it may or may not be worth, my hours of trying came up with only two "homemade banners" that I could use!!!

-

(the contrast between my homemade ones and Mary Lou's is pretty apparent, huh?)

Thanks for looking and thank you again, Mary Lou, both for the design work and for the affordable advertising opportunities you offer on LB -- It's the best deal going

Thanks, Kim!!! Mary Lou combined two separate shots of them to make it look like they posed together... It just mystifies me!!!

Don't sell yourself short Jill, you actually did a great job too!


But I understand, sometimes its just easier and less painful to get someone else to do it!

They look great!

Thanks, Ladies


I'm so stubborn that I may try and tweak my skills at banner making because I'd love to know how to make them as nicely as Mary Lou does!!!

Mary Lou does a great job, I didn't realize she designed the banners! They are awesome!


Jill-what program do you use to make your own? The two you made with the flashing words caught my eye when they were up, I clicked on them more than once!

Hi, Kim


What I did was used Roxio PhotoSuite to make to identical banners except that on has writing and one doesn't. Then, I used an animated gif program to combine those two images as the two frames of an animated gif
