What canvass size for the following?


Recommended Posts

Hi... i'm trying to make a heading for different stuff like webpages and presentations, but I'm having trouble with the html in particular. it goes over the right border so that the text doesn't become centered. Resizing is not an option since the image gets distorted. So I'm thinking of creating each for its specific purpose.

I was wondering if anyone could tell about what canvass size to begin with for webpages and (impress) presentations so that the whole page (only having problems with the heading actually) doesn't go overboard.

Thanks.

PS.

I hope you guys don't mind me asking about presentations and webpages here... I was thinking that since I am making images with PDN based on some of the tut here, it would be okay.... :)

I'm actually writing a tut of *how to make a header* at the moment. Most of the time headers are about 1000x350, but only the center is used. the rest is for blending with the rest of the page. For example, on THIS PAGE, the header is 1000x152, but if you look at it closely you'll see the third of it is used to blend arround.

So basicly, it depends on what webpage. If you could post your webpage here, i could try to help. Also, you might want to move your text using Css, so that everything is at the good place. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply...

That's also the width that I used... with the canvass in PDN that is...

I'm sorry, but this so amateurish...

This is the page at geocities:

I used writer to make everything because I don't know html. My problem there is the blue header with the alibata symbol (ancient handwriting of Filipinos). It's way beyond the right border, probably because of the ad google has... or I dunno really. But when I did it in writer, it didn't show up to be like that.

One more thing I noticed is that the actual content, the one with the table and blue gray area... it adjusts when you 'hide' the ad or when you resize your window... the header doesn't do that. or is that complicated stuff?

Ok i see that is all normal.

Your problem is that the header's width combined with the add is too big for your scrn size. I'm not sure what to do about that, since I usually try to pick free hosts with no banners. What you could try to do is position the header with Css.

Here's something that should help http://www.barelyfitz.com/screencast/ht ... sitioning/

I found a quick solution... I transfered to a webhosting sevice that didn't have the ad so the whole header can fit... :) (like you said) well it wasn't really quick because I had to migrate all my files... it's good now... and without the ads!

one thing I noticed though is that when you resize your window, it doesn't self-adjust like the table I placed...

hmm... how about you resize then?

it fits well when there's no ads on the side... so resizing it would (in theory) make it smaller when viewed without the ad since a width of 1000 looks good on the browser.

thanks a lot!
