Looking for pictures for skin theme idea for the site

Recommended Posts

Ok Gang...Winter time is coming and I'll be capable of putting more time into the site. I've been thinking of building another skin for the site but want some help from the members. Since I picked the forest thme for the site I'm going to let you guys submit your photos of what you want on the background. RV camping scene, Winter sports, dirty work pics, etc... How I build the skin is I take that photo and use it for the background like the forest pics I got now. Then using a paint program Gimp (or Photoshop) and sample the different colors from the picture and use it to color all the site then. So hopefully the pics are colorful with good contrast of light and dark. So maybe I build several skins who know... But I think it time to change up the site a bit or give you guys and gals the choice of different themes. Requirements:Pictures have to be large 2 Megapixel and up. (1600x1200) Please no date/time stamped pics or Cellphone pics they are just too small.No racing or competition pics (Boring :sleep:). Let keep it family orintated pictures.

Yea, the Forest pic is kinda lame :moon: but I'm not sure what to put in its place. In any event my vote is something Engine oriented. Maybe a collage of pics showing the progression of trucks of all types over time. I know the big honk'n MACKs with the chain drive and solid rubber tires from the early part of the 20th Century are eye candy to me.

How would you propose we participate in the idea generation?Do you want written suggestions, numerous pictures sent to you or is there some other specific way that would be beneficial for you?

Looking for a pictures... That's all the rest of the theme is built from your picture. I did the forest theme because its relaxing. But to go over to other site and they have aggressive theme that tend to spur off anger and fighting. So that's why I'm looking for pictures from you of just relaxing thing either with your truck or places you like. I'm stay away from competion type thmes or pictures. That's not what the site is about. Like here is another favorite picture... This is another fun activity I like to do!post-2-138698190887_thumb.jpgBut I want you guys and gals to get in on the action. I want you pictures to create the theme for the site.

I have several pictures I am going to offer up as possibilities and I have kind of organized them into six different themes.I am not sure of the picture limitations an a single post so I thought by breaking them up into themes I wouldn't clog up the system. Hope that works.The first theme is weather.post-11041-138698190933_thumb.jpg

Holy Cow... There is a crap load of pictures... :wow: I guess I can start play with some of these. Hey John may I ask if what the resolution is on most of these are thay large scaled? (>1000 pixles)

You asked! I delivered. :lol3: Most were taken with an 8 mexapixel camera so I am sure they will meet your resolution requirements. I also have a software program that can bulk up and reduce the resolution if you need something different. If you decide on one of these I don't know how to get it to you other than maybe email that doesn't trim the size of the attachment.

Go down to the bottom of the page and select Beach (Narrow) to take a sneak peek at what I'm up to... :whistle:It's taking me longer than usual while I get use to doing everything solely in Ubuntu Linux. So I'm not bailing out and running for Windows to grab old favorite tools to do the job. Rather raw so you might want to flip back to Forest or other themes... :rolleyes:

I have been trying to use the beach scene but some of the text doesn't show up.But I can see you have made some changes so I can see more of the text now.The text at the very top of the page is not visible unless you move your cursor over it. It is the line that shows your name ........ect..... and the Log out tab.I like the scene though.Thanks

Hmmm... Now you got me thinking of another plan. :think::ahhh:How about have a shifting theme for each generation forum. Like if you enter 1st Gen area the background shifts to 1st gen trucks, then 2nd gen forum with 2nd gen trucks etc. This would give key people a shot of having there truck in the background of the forum. Hmmm... :think::rolleyes: Damn now you got me dreamin' of weird ides for the winter time on how to build it.Dang you CajFlynn... :lol:

What are you doing in this picture with the crane and the directional pulleys? It looks like the cable is going into that trailer?

Wireline logging unit that is made into a sea crate. Thats an oil well that we are dropping a set of tools down on that cable. Using the occult, black magic, and :spend: we can tell people what goes on a couple miles down. I am a hydraulic fracturing guy, and the below pics are from a crew I was running a while back involved with a job.

Um... Mike... I am not the smartest guy, and I sometimes don't read things very well... but thats what I thought this thread was? Thats why I posted truck pics. I thought this was the "pix of trucks working" thread.
