We love you, Miss Hannigan
Okay, so I have spent entirely too much time in the last few days trying to make a layout for this community. In my defense, I really like playing around with Photoshop and I was having a good time, or at least I told myself I was, but by the fifth time I had to stop myself from throwing the computer out of the window in frustration, I probably should have been able to acknowledge that the joy I derive from graphic design was maaaaaybe falling by the wayside a bit. Seriously, LJ. OMGWTF. I don't know why it won't let me lay out the background such that the pictures are placed relative to the text box, so that it would look the same on anyone's monitor regardless of that person's individual resolution settings and monitor size, and I don't know why it INSISTS on giving me this ugly blue-gray-and-black "bruise" layout (no, really, that's what it's called, "bruise") when I keep telling it I want "banana peel" (banana peel, then bruise - is LJ having a joke on us?), and I don't know why smoke is jetting out of my ears when it's just an LJ layout, Kylie, settle down.|
So. Anyway. I know how this layout looks on my computer: the colors are all wrong, but at least the physical layout is right - i.e., the picture on the left hand side isn't blocked by the text box. What I don't know is how the layout looks for anyone else. So, if you'd be so kind to indulge me in this, a completely non-Carol-related post, and just pop over to the comm for a quick second to take a look at the layout and tell me how it looks to you, I'd be much obliged.
What does the layout look like on your computer?
It looks great! The text box doesn't overlap the pictures on the side, the color scheme of the text box matches the color scheme of the background, and I like the overall look.
The text box doesn't overlap and the color scheme matches, but I'm not a big fan of the overall look.
The text box overlaps on my computer, but it's mostly orange and thus matches the color scheme.
The text box overlaps on my computer, but it's mostly yellow and thus matches the color scheme.
The text box doesn't overlap on my computer, but the text box is blue/gray/black and thus doesn't match the background.
The text box overlaps and it's blue/gray/black.
What background? There's no background. The background is the standard one for that layout.
Or, put in other terms, I see:
A Carol Burnett background
A blue/gray/black text box
A primarily orange text box
A primarily yellow text box
A text box that overlaps the Carol Burnett pictures on the left hand side
A text box that doesn't overlap the Carol Burnett pictures on the left hand side
Something else that is completely bizarre
(I forgot to mention, on the last question, tick all that apply.)
Seriously, LJ. You know you own my life. Why must you torment me this way? Haven't I been a good and loyal servant?
