Great capture. The banner splits for me, which is always a disappointment (no offense intended, just an FYI).

What do you mean when you say "the banner splits for me" ?

Toni, some banners go across the whole screen, and others only go about 3/4 of the way and start over again with the beginning of the left side. I don't think this happens for everyone, but when it does it is disconcerting. I think it has something to do with the size of your submittal and/or the size of the screen it is being displayed on. My main screen is 24".

There have been some discussions about this but I forget what the consensus was and I suck at searching. Maybe someone else remembers or can find the thread(s) that addressed this.

Nevertheless, you banner is quite lovely.

Holy cow! Thank you all for the Thumbs up and Acorn Wow--what a special treat to wake up to Green Grin!
This is a really old one, one of the first I ever tried to make Hilarious!

Sorry 'bout the splitting Deb--it really is annoying. My desktop monitors are large too. All banners split for me if I have the window full screen, plus-and there is all that annoying white space on the right of every page in the forums.
What works for me is to pull in one or both sides of the window, you know with the little arrow thingy that you can adjust the size with? anyway--it helps keep my head from exploding, and the partial window is still plenty big enough to see and do everything.
On my phone, it's a whole different story! Vertically, the banner doesn't even show the flying bee; and horizontally, there is that horrendous split Sighing! at least though, the vacuous white space problem is absent on my phone.

I haven't tried to make any banners for a while now, so I'll just pre-appologize for any future banners without seamless transitions...
and, if and when I see one that might make a seamless transition, I'll try it Crossing Fingers!
