    Good Morning All!

    I could use your suggestions in modernizing our community non-for-profit logo!
    ALL Ideas are appreciated! It was created by a very nice older gentleman more then 15 years ago! We are still the FRIENDLY Island but I think the Sun and water looks cartoonish!
    What do you all think?

    It is a good looking logo BUT IMHO overly busy. Simplifying the design could play off by making it look more modern and cleaner.

    All you need to do is import a heron onto the canvas. There isn't one in TLC that was imported from a much earlier version of TLC... template and was colored before...:artist:. Palm.png

    You can add ANY png or jpg to TLC. If you are on a PC, look for the directory ...
    \My Documents\Laughingbird Documents\Logo Elements

    In this directory you can create a sub-directory to put your own graphics in. Name it something appropriate so you know what's there. Make sure the file extension is lower case. Any .PNG will not show up, but .png will!

    Look here for some cool free graphics by one of our admins ... http://www.glenncuneo.com/software-downloads.html

    To resize your "canvas" it is a matter of FORMATTING the canvas. Or you can use an image editor to change the size of the exported file No longer is it possible to change the DPI in TLC....which is a set of numbers not 2 Changing the resolution will require the use of an image editor either online or on board.

    You can use Google's PhotoScape ( free! ) to set a higher DPI on your exported logo image. Just Google for it!
