Good calculation Doug. Very Happy

Guess you are right. As new members keep coming in, we have more and more photos to select from everyday. But I am always open for suggestions.

One thing need to be pointed out though, qualify for logo picture or not doesn't reflect one's photos' quality. As I explained before, photos for logo has some strict and strange restricts, many excellent photos won't make a decent logo.

To answer Connor401's question, copyright font is verdana (standard in windows XP), and I forgot the font name for site name. I will check my desktop computer and post back.


P.S. Rejoice is my favorite shampoo brand, made by P&G. Though it can only be found in China, but not Canana. Never know it has a meaning, thought it's just a brand name, a made-up word.

I have several photos that I think are logo worthy. I have them hosted on a website I manage. I am displaying them here in my order of favoritism along with the image number and link. Take your pick.

With 1,171 present members as I write this and 26 logo photos selected per year, and 62 photos so far selected and shown, assuming no further members ever joining (unrealistic)-it would take about 42 and a half years to give each remaining unselected present member a chance to have a logo photo selected and displayed. If you already have had a photo of yours displayed as the Home Page logo background-rejoice! It likely won't happen again!

thanks for working that out Surprised

glad one of mine was chosen for this month Very Happy Very Happy

Thank You! The intent was to show the realism of not having more than one photo selected for the A-D site logo taken by any member. Let's keep the Forum content healthy and productive. I have certainly taken better photos than the one of mine that Ken chose for a Logo photo, but I am pleased with its past inclusion. I would remind all that you can nominate the photo of another photographer for the logo, as has been done in the past to help Ken.

Hi All,

It has been a tradition for to change it's logos regularly. Now with over 170K photo on site, I found it very time consuming for me to search photos suitable for logo. So I would appreciate if every of our user can help me by suggesting some good photos.

Which or what kind of photo are suitable for making logo is always subject to personal taste. Here's some general guidelines I have been using:

1. Must be able to fit our logo size: 480x80 pixels. It may require cropping or shrinking.
2. Clear and sharp.
3. Clear background with none or little other objects (such as cloud, ground vehicles, crowd, etc).
4. "" will be shown at bottom-left corner, which will cover about one quarter of the image. Take it in consideration.
5. Artistic airport photo is also acceptable.
6. Photo must exist on
7. I try my best to give everyone a chance so one logo per user. I will list all users whose work was used for past logos. Please check the list before submitting.

With every submission, please provide Photographer's name and orignal photo ID. You can submit your own or other's.

You can also submit prepared logo by cropping, shrinking, editing original photo (without site name) via email. If so, please email me your work in photoshop format (.PSD file) if possible, otherwise use PNG or GIF. JPG is also acceptable but please use highest quality to avoid image quality lose.

I can't garuantee that every submitted photo will be used. Once selected, I will add the photographer to the user list (and submitter if not same person).

On a side note, because of the special dimension of logo image, a beautifully taken regular photo is likely NOT suitable for the purpose. So please do not judge one's photograph professionalism by whether or not his/her photo was chosen for logo.

Never saw this topic before, but here's my submission for the Airport-Data backgrounds. Clearly the logos haven't been changed in a very long time so if you guys need help making logos please let me know.
