    OK, so you've all no doubt seen the various Talkback images around here, the two images at the top of most Talkbacks which list the network/block the show is airing on and the show itself. It's a nice little banner that helps identify the show and makes the Talkback itself look better as a whole.

    Unfortunately, I don't visit each and every Talkback that goes on around here, so there may be some Talkbacks that need an image, but you're unsure of where to find someone to make it. That's what this thread is for.

    Simply post the show you would like me to make an image for and I'll do my best to make a spiffy one. If you have a particular image you'd like to see in the pic, either post it here as an attachment or paste a link to it.

    The only forums I will not make Talkback images for are the Adult Swim, DC, and Marvel forums, as they do not use Talkback images, or at least the same ones I make.

    In case you want to use the network Talkback pics, here they are:

    You're gonna have to be more specific or provide an image for use. I've already made two Who images already.

    And I've already made all the wrestling images (except TNA). Penguin's currently using them.

    That's what I get for not reviewing the talkbacks then :D

    Is there a way you can create a standard template, or just a guide to create them? I'm sure a lot of people would find it useful.

    Not unless GIMP can read .psd files and not pixelate shrunken images.

    Is there a link someplace that collects all the images? It would be nice just to have one topic we could refer to to see them if we need them.

    Also, does Scrubs have an image?

    24 is not using a talkback image at this time. Currently, series that are posted weekly (by me anyway) are just using a show image. I think it makes them more epic (as epic as an internet post can be anyway).

    This list currently includes 24, Prison Break, Studio 60 and Smallville.

    I think it should work. I do ok without either. But it needs to crop, resize, mask, fill and add text. Being able to mask and move specific images around to fit helps.

    The easiest template is to keep a copy and simply refill it with new images, but knowing the pixel size for text and borders is useful.

    Those are nice by the way, and having them in one place makes them easier to find than searching old talkbacks

    I've found the "Movie Event" useful

    I probably have many of the CN forum shows reasonably handy if you'd like copies posted.

    I always wanted to make one for Eureka, but I don't think people talk about that one much.

    I do have a template I can use (actually, CookieS made it), but like I said, it's a .psd file. And Photoshop smooths out shrunken images, which can be really annoying on other programs.

    Nah. I've got access to the Fridays Fansite directory, so I can just use those.

    I was thinking about making a talkback earlier in Season 1, but I kept forgetting. I'd try to make one for Season 2, but I forget when it premieres.
