    This is our current forum banner guys:

    [​IMG]

    I need something simple done, and I don't have Photoshop or similar graphics software installed on my PC at this time. I need some sort of nice "matching" text below at the bottom of the banner that says "mc.ecocitycraft.com"

    That's literally it.
    Requirements:

    - Must stay transparent
    - Must stay same file size/type
    - Must be readable and go with the flow of the banner

    Thankfully, I found one without the nether star :) This should help a lot. If you can just find a nether star image, put it in a little higher and perhaps make it a smaller nether star, afterwards write the IP below.

    This is the image without a nether star:

    [​IMG]

    And this is the TL;DR of what I want:
    "mc.ecocitycraft.com" in the red box. Nice, high def matching text.

    I'm simply going to take the first one I like after a few submissions, while providing feedback on current entries.

    Post all submissions in this thread.

    I don't like how it overlaps the star. Perhaps take the picture without the star, add that text, and insert a smaller star.
    I do like this teaxt though, maybe a little more high def if possible, and sharp with black outline.

    You know now that I look at this some more, I may be okay with it over lapping the star, and the text actually is HD.
    Hmm, can you make the border black?

    I'm very much liking this one.
    Going to hold off to see if anyone else submits, and if not, may go with it.
    Feel free to submit revisions and different styles :)

    moved star up a little and made it smaller, let me see if its possible to sharpen the text, im working with a rather low resolution area so it might not be possible

    This is similar but I literally tried to recreate the all caps font on EcoCityCraft. Not sure if you want a lower caps or something though. Also tried to make the nstar the same height as the second line text

    great looking text, horrible star lol
    Hm, I think the overlapping one may look nicer, this one looks a bit odd?
    The star is too small, and the text doesn't seem to flow with the banner hmm

    sorry for the spam, but here is the banner with the larger star, darkened text border, and I slightly sharpened the text to hopefully pull a more HD look when I cant actually up the resolution. any more thoughts?

    Edit: do you think a more prominent gradient would look better in the text, you can barely see it?
