Posted this in the grassroots forum but got no feedback. Anybody?
Hi everyone, I've been working on a website: www.paulites.com and I need a little bit of help.

First off, the purpose of the site is to simply be another news hub for us, one that can last through elections for years to come. The idea of the site is that it is a clone of digg.com with the focus on supporters/followers of Ron and Rand Paul, and more broadly the message of liberty.

I plan on doing some fun things with the site like a podcast discussing the top stories and maybe some videos, but not yet.

Feel free to check it out and participate if you like.

What I need help with is this: I need a title image for the website, and I have no graphics skills.

The image needs to be 960 px wide and 52 px tall, but the height could be a little more or less, depending.

I would like the image to be a black and white cutout of a bunch of people marching down the street (like a rally) holding a big sign that says "The Revolution Continues" and then somewhere in the image, a small "Paulites.com".

This is almost what I'm thinking:

The picture I'm thinking of as inspiration is this:

Anyway let me know if anyone wants to help. I'll be working on it too, but it could take me a long time, LOL.

PS - I know there are lots of Paul sites out there already. I'm not trying to take anything away from them. I'm actually trying to drum up even more social media buzz for them, as this site will simply be a news hub that sends out tweets and facebook posts, etc. Thanks!

I am typically horrible with graphics, but I'll see if I can find some way to help.

You'll have to right-click this to "view image" and then copy to get the full-size. Hope it works for you. The size is right: 960 X 52

Hey that looks pretty good! Do you have the original psd or xcf?

Don't know what that means.

photoshop file format or gimp file format. They are common photo editors. Just curious if you had the original with layers and such.

I use Paint Shop Pro and layers are .psp --- not sure Photoshop uses them.
