How can I make these Pics to be used as Banners 930px Wide?
#1
I found stuff that can be used as banners in regards to games I posted trivia for that don't already have banners, of which I did already show to KnowledgeBase, Patient Zero and Matthew Neuteboom in an email. Per Suggestion made in the Site Discussion Threads sometime last year, it seems like a good idea to have us submitters also find banners and boxarts for these games, they can't be without forever. Unfortunately I can't show pics in this of what those banners were due to size and characters limitations used for posts, but as stated above, they were emailed to some staff.


If these can be made into being 930px Wide to be used as Banners, that would be nice, of which I've tried doing myself, hence why I saved them as a document.

Upload them to imgur and post them here. I'll see what I can do.

Generally, unless it's already really close, resizing a small image up to 930px wide is something we like to avoid. Obviously, in some cases, it may be unavoidable but for modern games, it shouldn't be overly difficult to find a source image of an appropriate width.

Where exactly Petie have you been finding these 930px wide images to be used as Banners for VGFacts Pages if not Google Images over the years?

Again, just send them to me. Resizing is easy when you have photoshop.

We'll dedicate a thread to it or something. They just have to be bigger than the requirements or the result's gonna look bad.

Per suggestion of Psychospacecow, I sorted out the stuff to be used as banners myself on Imgur, I titled the game that they're for, and made them 930 wide (by wide I used the number as 930 on the right side of the x that indicates width, something I learnt in Maths Classes over the years and still remember):

Sorry about the delays. Schedule's been a bit hectic this last week.

Going through the images now, and a lot of them are real jpeg'd. [Image: buIPhT2.jpg?1]

I'm assuming the quality difference would've been a result of the images that are smaller than the required size.
I can try and redo any of them that aren't accepted if ya give me the list of 'em. Again, sorry about the lack of response.

Here are some more banners I did through Imgur. Like with the others I made them 930 wide:

Again, I really need to stress that we can’t accept images that you find that are too small and then edited to be 930px wide. Especially with more modern games that have 1080p screenshots available, there’s just no excuse for blowing up a small image. In some cases, appropriately sized images are difficult or near impossible to find but we’ll deal with those when we can. In the meantime, blowing up tiny images is not the way to handle the majority of the games that still need banners and we won’t accept those that have been edited as such.

For the record, I’m on an iPad at the moment and haven’t actually looked at your most recent links - this is based entirely on your phrasing.
