The logos currently looks a bit edgy and pixellated. I have decided to try "cleaning" them up a bit to make them look nicer, and will post my progress in the thread.



Hand Held Gaming Icon
For this logo, a glow seems to make it look less blurry. I did this one first as it was the one which annoys me the most; looking so pixelated.
Cleaning up of forum logos Controller
A very slightly cleaned up

Cleaning up of forum logos Controller2
One with a slight glow effect.

Cleaning up of forum logos Controller3
Green glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Controller4
Less glow.


Cleaning up of forum logos Controller5
Orange Glow.

Video Gaming Icon
Another logo with jagged sides. I'll try using glows again and tidying up the edges.

Cleaning up of forum logos Device
A cleaned up version.

Cleaning up of forum logos Device2
Red Glow effect.

Cleaning up of forum logos Device3
White Glow effect.

Cleaning up of forum logos Device4
Another White Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Device5
Tinted Red

Cleaning up of forum logos Device6
Orange Glow.

Feedback Icon
Yup, the sides are jagged once again. Looks like glows are one of the only solutions. Neutral

Cleaning up of forum logos Type1
A cleanup, but still jagged with black.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type
Glow plus a small cleanup I did.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type3
Yellowish Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type2
Green is soothing.Smile

Cleaning up of forum logos Type4
A Dual-Green Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type5
Darker Orange Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type6
Lighter Orange Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type7
Very Orange Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos Type8
Stronger Orange Glow.

Newcomer Intro Icon
A icon with white surrounding it. Shouldn't be too hard to clean up,even without a glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos House
Cleaned up quite nicely. Smile(except for the blur at the top-left)

Cleaning up of forum logos House2
Blur Removed.

Cleaning up of forum logos House3
Yellow Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos House4
Orange Glow.

Cleaning up of forum logos House5
Better Orange Glow.

I will edit this post and put in new ones when I am done with them. tell me which one you like best.Smile

Okay, please wait till we get walkthroughs/faq and releases done. I just sent the last 2 to Aryan last night. Afterwards you can put a glow around them.
I kinda like it with the glow. Smile

But please make sure to do all of them, if we have some glowing, some not -
it will look messy.

Also please make sure you have the same glow for all of them - if not it will look random.

After you are done, please send them to me and I will get these to Aryan.

I will edit this thread so everyone can rate them, before I start PMing. The opinions of others should be heard as well before any changes are done.Wink

I personally like this glow effect. Cleaning up of forum logos Controller2

However I dislike this one. Cleaning up of forum logos Device2

And we will wait to hear others opinion and decide on a glow effect.

I really like the white glow you used for hand held gaming icon.
I'll be waiting until you finish modifying.
BTW which program do you use for the glow effect?

If I had to throw a shot-in-the-dark guess I would have to say either
Photoshop, ViewAhead Photo Center, or Paint Shop Pro.

Yup, its photoshop. Anime2Life said just about every program I would use to make a glow effect, but he missed out gimp and fireworks and maybe flash.Wink

Here's an update anyways.

Once Again I like this glow used here. Cleaning up of forum logos Type Cleaning up of forum logos Device3

Green is good but too bright for our forum skin and as you said yellow looks very bad on the forum as well.

Using a white glow or a very light yellow looks nicer in my opinion.

I still say that white glow is the best.
Green and even yellow glows are too bright. Maybe orange glow or a red glow or maybe darker red glow would be nice too.

I'm getting confused of all these different glows. Laughing
Which is why I'm going to start a new poll with each example of your glows.

We will vote on it and that way you will have a better idea of which glow you could make your icons.

I'll try some of those Aryan suggested. The only problem is that the darker colours won't be able to glow very well.

Good mods ngh.

I agree, it fits any theme. But I would also like to see an orange glow, to match the theme.

I'll try one out. Green makes the picture look brighter and maybe a bit radioactive. Orange also makes it look bright, but also warmer.

Green doesn't fit the theme. GV needs a constant theme or colour, currently orange and black. We need to keep to a standard with the theme and images.

Ok then. I'll start work on more of the icons and edit this post when I'm done.

EDIT: I did an update to the icons.

*bump for updates*

Bumps merged. Please edit your posts in the future.

>< Isn't a bump supposed to bring the issue up again?
