Found 16th Feb 2007
Hi all,
I'm just seeting up my very first website and am looking for a fountain piccy or gif to use as a logo.

I've done countless google searches and come up with nothing thats usable.
Anyone know where I can get one from? Or have one they could kindly donate me?:-D

I'm looking for a photo / image of a fountain (pref monochrome) or a nice gif that looks good enough to put on the first page of a jewellery website.

As soon as my shops up and running I'll even give a discount as a prize to the person who can find me one!

Thanks in advance! Kel

Don't know how good you are at photoshopping but you could shop that gif to get rid of her watermark, orfollow her guide to make your own, if you follow the guide, you'd still have to find a suitable base picture though.

Google's not ideal for this sort of pursuit.

If you're looking for good FREE royalty free images I can point you in the direction of [url]www.sxc.hu[/url], you'll have to sign up (dead easy) to get the top quality downloads.

Or alternatively there's the brilliant [url]www.yotophoto.com[/url]

With each image I'd recommend looking at the usage restrictions given by the photographer to avoid issues. Most however don't place restrictions but often ask to see where their work is being used.

You could then Photoshop anything if it needs tweaking i.e. monochrome (which I don't mind doing if you find something).

I tend to use iStockphoto.com as they tend to have the most professional shots for my design work but you'll have to pay a small fee for downloads.

OK after paying someone $50 to make me one and ending up with... well... something diabolical, I've decided to take pawsntails advice and make my own - taking me a bit longer as I'm giving my self a sink or swim lesson in photoshop but appears to be coming along.

But heres the thing... none of the old links on the page work anymore so I can find the demos I need. Can anyone help?

I need Eye Candy 4000 (with a working jiggle function) and Gregs Pool Shadow.

I've posted this question on justanswers.com and the first person to find me either a link to a demo of eye candy 4000 (that works and has the usable jiggle function) or email me ...ahem.. another usable version :whistling: can go claim my $9 reward.

Not a lot but it will buy you lunch - lol!

Alternatively any know how to replicate the effects of jiggle using another programme - I found a great answer to this on a forum yesterday but forgot to add it to favorites and cant find it again:oops:

I have removed the watermark of the fountain 1st posted by pawnstail if you want it...

There is a reason why most websites do not use animated gifs, if you really nead a fountain learn some flash to create something that wont hurt peoples eyes and clog bandwidth.

I've got Eye Candy 4000 at work but never been intrigued to use the jiggle filter. What does it do? And if so do you want me to jiggle something for you

Hi - I think it just adds a sparkly / bubbly water affect on a certain setting.

Is it possible for me to email you the image for you to jiggle?
Do you think it will still work when I reload it?

Just lost my first lot as the comp crashed and I hadnt saved it:oops:
But shouldnt take me too long to do another and email it

Thanks,
Kel

I will! As soon as I'm up and running I'll post a discount voucher to everyone who has helped me along the way

Really appreciate the find!:thumbsup:
Thanks

Is it an image or an animated gif? I must confess I have no experience with animated images as I'm a print designer. Though I'll be starting web design in the next couple of months.

Original Poster

I'm not really sure - it appears to be an image but I think jiggle is some type of animation device?

My first time ever working with anything beyond paint so I do know how to activate it as an animation if it is one

When I redo it I'll email it to you and we'll see

You'll not be able to do that here as it would be classed as self-promotion, which we don't allow... :whistling:

OK no probs,

Can I mail it to individuals that have helped me? Or is that against the rules?
