Creating my Tipping Banner

Whats happening peeps?

It's day 2 of week 3 in the Dreemport Ecency challenge and todays portion was actually easy for me. We had to create a banner to use whenever we tip someone's post on Ecency. It's a feature that can be done if you run aross a post that is to old to be upvoted or you dont have enough to do a boost on it. You can tip them Ecency points directly. It does Hive and HBD as well.

This video is a "speed" video in which I recorded a screencast of me using Gimp, a free and open source photo editor similar to Photoshop.

I pirated (borrowed?) @dreemsteem banner she made so I could make sure I had the correct dimensions of the image. I also used to to compare what I was creating to make sure I got something similar but not the same design.

When I was happy with what I created I removed her image layer from the project and exported the final image. I then ran the images through an app called Metadata Cleaner which is, I think, a Linux only app at the momment. It's available on Flathub so any version of Linux can install it easily. I'm sure there are a plethora of similar apps for you Windows & Mac peeps out there.

The Result

Here is the banner I made in the video. Its pretty generic and anybody is free to use it if you want. No credit to me is necessary.

I also came up with the idea of constantly changing my banner. I'm going to use quotes of generosity in them and will create 2 different ones for my personal use each month. These will have my face branded on them. So I ask you not to use these.

If anybody needs help in making a banner I first suggest you check out Canva. It's free and fricking awesome and easy to use. So easy this bonehead used it to create the intro and outro for these videos. Lol. If you still come up with anything hit me up and I will help as much as I can. Just keep in mind I cant make everybodys. My team mates will come first though.

Leading with Generosity

Yesterday I got so flustered with that post that I hit publish without adding the beneficiary. So today I'm going to do it. The beneficiary of 100% of this post goes to someone I think doesnt get hardly any recognition for everything he does. On chain and off chain. He has been there consistently over the last year and half for me personally. Even longer for others. He's no stranger to generosity either. Of all the people on Hive I've talked to most is without a doubt him. I know as soon as you go look at his profile you will think I'm nuts. Since he hasnt posted for 9 months. And even then it was pure 100% shit post.

But the dude is unwaivering in his support for Hive. He's the creator and maintainer of MSPWave and the coming SplinterlandsTV which is already in operaton with a full schedule. He's help tutor countless budding radio/video streamers start and run their own shows on the blockchain including myself. The dude is none other than @r0nd0n.

And he deserves way more than what this post will probably bring him. So please upvote as much as you can, reblog it and share it on the old social media!

Maybe if we tag him enough in other posts he might make some time to actually post something before the end of 2022! Lol.

Full disclosure: @r0nd0n will technicly get 89% since @threespeak will take 11% of this post. So double up your upvotes peeps!

Wow! Unkle lovely banner once again.You are good at creating banners.

meta007 :

Wow. Another piece of art by unklebonehead.This ecency cover more beautiful than previous one.

olawalium :

This is one thing I don't know how to do; create banners and all... Design isn't my strong suit and I must say I absolutely love what you did with yours and the word you used? That's one of my favourite... You've never done anything for anyone until you've done something for someone who might never be able to repay you.

Another one goes like this: "I would rather live a day and touch many lives than to live for hundred years and not be remembered by anyone for anything worthwhile..."

Amazing designs, sir.

annymharie :

Love the quoted banner:)

amberkashif :

Okayssss. So there is a 100% upvote for your friend. Hehe.

Your banner is cool. Why I said cool. The colors of it make it look cool. Easy and soothing on eyes.

With editing you keep on coming with more and more ideas and you just want to apply them all. Happens toe too and I just feel rest less. !LOLZ

r0nd0n :

Thanks for the kind words and gesture Bonehead. I appreciate your work and dedication on MSP Waves and in all the open source communities. Keep being awesome!

fragozar01 :

My pending task, make my banner, which seemed like a great task. I've already seen yours over there in some other post. I hope to fulfill this today, I will take the time from wherever. Excellent dreamy friend.

zyzymena :

You add simply awesome. The steps are very clear and with the apps, one can easily create something so similar. Although the app only present on Linux can be a little challenge. How nice of you to have made a generic banner for everyone to use.

Well done! You are really an unkle.

ahmadmanga :


I didn't create a Tip banner for myself, (I think I should now after reading this,) but I made these icons so I could show how much I agree/love/laughed at the post content! (I do that mostly on DBuzz for now.)
