Seeing Sue's lovely banner today reminded me that we'll need lots of rose banners for February, when roses will be the featured plant-of-the-week on ATP. If you have any photos suitable for cropping as banners, go to the Site Banners Forum. At the top of the right-hand column you'll find a link to follow if you're submitting a banner, and also a tutorial in case you're not experienced in creating banners.

Hi Zuzu,

I tried, but no luck. I can't seem to get it 150 pix high. 149 or 151 is my choices when I crop but the ATP Banner submission will only accept 150 high Thumbs down

Gosh, I've never even tried, so I can't help you with that. Maybe Sue can tell you what to do.

I can't contribute. All my photos are still on my old, dead computer awaiting a miracle.

I tried with a couple of tutorials but couldn't get it until I followed this tip from Angie and it was super easy!

well, I'm gonna be absolutely no help here because all my pictures are not cropable to a size of 150X1200. They don't look right.

Dave already used two of my rose banners and there are two more in the queue, if they want to set those aside. Once I get my computer up and going again, hopefully tomorrow, I'll go through and see if I can make a few more.

I managed to get a couple to work with the pixir link. I had to crop it to 151. Then a 2nd crop to the new size of 151 to 150 .

I have several rose banners in the queue. My daughter patiently worked with me until I could do banners and now it is hard to stop.

I uploaded a few rose banners and as Paul says it is hard to stop. Hopefully some of the photos will meet the crisp focus criteria. I think the best one was the bright yellow bloom of Sunny Daze Hybrid Tea. Also included some bright red rose hips from a Red Leaf Rose
