Add pictures

Can there maybe be pictures of mountains or rivers on the main page so that it won't only be the topic sections? I think that would look pretty nice. Just compress/squish the topic sections a bit and add some nice images on the side.

A banner would be nice to look at on top too. It would make this forum look more colorful and professional. I could even make the banner if I can know the dimensions.

Awesome idea @TheKnight! Let me start looking for images for the section topics.

I also thought of doing a banner but not sure what I should go for? A real colorful picture would be eye catching but make title hard to see? What do you think?

I mean, it doesn't have to be colorful. It just needs to look nice because either way, it will be on top of the page and any landscape will look good be it dark or light since nature always looks nice.

I made this quick one just to show you how it might/can look:

How about real pictures taken by members themselves? I am in Australia right now so I will post couple of outdoor images in my next post if I find an option for that. I would love to hear admin on this particular matter please.

@Ray1
That sounds like a pretty good idea! I'd like to see what kind of photos you can take.

To post images, click on ''Full Editor & Preview'' next to the ''submit'' option then click on IMG on the options above the editor. A ''[img].[/img]'' should appear then, upload your picture to a source like imgur.com then copy the image address and paste it between the [img]and[/img].

Hey folks thanks for all good ideas. Especially @TheKnight I like the image you've provided, it's so eye-catching and refreshing, truly represent the theme of this forum. It would be awesome if anyone of you can help on the picture.

For a suitable image I have some considerations
- Like the one uploaded above, it should be landscape with higher width-to-height ratio. Higher is better for saving space. Panoramic picture even does better so it could be made to responsive to screen size.
- The color tone should be eye-catching but not too much.
- Should have space for putting up title and sub-title...

To post image, as already mentioned in the post above, you can
1) click Img or manually type in [img].[/img], and replace dot with link of image from one of below
2a) using external source like imgur.com OR
2b) click Attachments, then Add files. Once the file is uploaded you can click Place inline and get the file name or link.
