Tomlin and some players


Grilled, baby


Tomlin alone


The plan is to use that shot of Heinz Field and the grill as the backgrounds for several banners.  I've figured out how to clean up the player/object cutouts better (but hadn't at the creation of the first banner above, you can see some rough edges on the people) and now it's just a matter of accumulating enough "widgets" to mix and match a butt load of banners.

Having many banners will allow for all sorts of themes from old players, new players, offense, defense, trophies and whatever else comes to mind.

Thanks for the input, aj.

I agree.  Looks very good.

I like the first one as a default banner banner background.  Can we take the lettering from the second grill banner and stretch it along the bottom of the first banner?  Might have to shrink to the text size a bit so it's not so cumbersome.  Or, maybe make the banner a 'lil bigger?

Also, do you have a shot of Tomlin holdin' the Lombardi and not the AFCC trophy?  And, do you have some kinda logo signifying XLIII, #6, etc.?

Wish I had the technical know how to do more than just offer my $0.02 worth...

Yeah, I need a new cut out of Tomlin, with the Lombardi this time.  Hopefully can find a shot with only one arm up or holding it in front.

You know, it probably wouldn't be hard to put "VI" on the trophy. 

As for the lettering, the grill version would probably look good on the other background.  There's much that can be done with the lettering.  I just have to remember to save them as components to avoid recreating all the damn time.  So far so good on that account.

Made a few new ones but couldn't find a shot of Tomlin with the Lombardi.  Then I remembered reading that he said he never touched it.  There's no photographic evidence that he did, I can attest to that.

And got the rotating thang working too!  You gotta love software that's free to the public (like SMF, used for this message board) and the users at the SMF & Tiny Portal sites who develop stuff and post it for everyone else to use.  The entire photo gallery add-on was developed and provided for free by SMF users.  And it was created from various components that were released for free public use.
