@krobra,

Great banner. How did you put together the parts of your banner? Confused

@Marilyn , Thank you and everyone else who commented , liked and / or gifted acorns it is all very much appreciated.

and to answer Marilyn's question , this is how I did it

with a free basic photoshop like program (for windows PCs only) called Photofiltre 7 ,
to crop each picture (trim them square) ,
resized each picture ( so they were the required 150 pixels high ) ,
created a new blank white document / picture 1500 x 150 pixel background
copy and pasted all the resized pics on the new background as layers ( so i could move them around until I was happy with the arrangement) ,
then merged them all into one photo (flatten the many pieces into just one piece) ,
I then saved as a jpg file
A pint can't hold a quart , If it is holding a pint it is doing the best that it can.
and it is written ,
if the evil spirit arms the tiger with claws , brahman provided wings for the dove.

Oh Kurt, nothing short of stunning! Thanks for sharing the "how to"-- I may try it when time permits. Congratulations
"My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird β€” equal seekers of sweetness. Here the clam deep in the speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." β€” Mary Oliver, from Messenger
