Hi Omry!

The background-color of the Firestats Mainpage has changed, since
Wordpress 2.7 I think.
So i made the logo firestats-header.png with a transparent background.
In my blog it looks great.
The question is, how it looks in the other supported portals, beacause
its impossible to make the borders of the Font smooth, without
cluttering the whole logo.

If you want, i send you the png to have a look at it.

sure, send it to me.

also send me a screenshot of the actual thing in wordpress.

I didn't notice it before, but now I do.
on my monitor the color difference is very slight.

Maybe it would be better to redraw logo in vector format (i.e. *.svg)?
There will no problems with image scaling and color manipulation
later.

Or maybe you have vector image but you're keeping silence? :)

Hi Folks!

I improved the transparent FireStatsLogo.
Please have a look at it.
@Omry: Maybe take this one, because its much better than the last Version.

Greets, Johannes

sorry for the slightly late response, had to find those.

it's the psd and the font used.


hope this helps.

btw, Omry, the psd and the zipfile with the font are empty...
i did the job by reconstructing the whole image.
maybe you could send it again, and i try to improve the image once
more with the original font.
That will improve the letters a bit!

bye, Johannes

I can't verify that the work because my gimp wont open psd (missing
plugin) but they seem to contain something.

resending.
