Logo help needed

    I am working on a "dark" (ie. black/grey background) alternate theme for the message boards, but the current logo at the top of the message boards is a transparent gif which unfortunately has some rough edges and doesn't work unless it is on a white or very light background.


    I don't want the logo redesigned, simply reworked so it will display okay on both light and dark backgrounds. All that is available is the gif you see, no psd files etc. and I don't have the tools or skills to sort this out myself.

    Is there anyone on the boards who is able to assist?

    Pretty easy to do. I'd bash on with it but I'm working at the moment unfortunately.

    Presumably you'd need the inside of the circle kept white, as well as the RTG text and the ALS?

    I can change anything.But that's not a good resolution.

    It'll be optional, dark or light. Most sites have it these days.

    Like cheeses said the resolution is too low to tinker with it. Do you have the original high definition logo or the psd file/s?

    Why use a high-res file then clean it up, when you could more easily create a new one from scratch, that looks exactly the same?
  17. Why is this the in thing nowadays? Saw something mentioned about the iPhone getting a new 'dark theme'like it was fucking groundbreaking work
  18. I did tidy it up a bit .But you can only do so much

    Grey background...

    Having your phone with a white background all the time is the equivalent of having your headphones on 200% volume all the time.

    Unfortunately it's far too pixelated at the current resolution to do anything with it. I gave it a go on a dark grey background but the problem lies with the selection of pixels around the black text.
