Hi there I'm Phil.C from Australia

I'm new to website building and this forum but have learned a lot from these forums. So thanks so far! I find Blue Voda to be one of the better WYSIWYG builders. (great price as well)

I'm building a site on Golf Training aids and have created a basic header for my site using the funtions of BV 0.8. I've used a rectangle shape, added some basic text and have thrown in a picture.

But now I have seen a few headers on websites you all have created I'm starting to feel like a school kid who hasn't learnt to draw yet.

I attempted to download a graphics creator suggested in this forum because it was supposed to be better than MS PAINT???. Unfortunately because I cannot use XP SP2 on my PC (corruption problems) I was unable to download the graphics program.

Does anyone know any (limited cash flow)FREE Graphics or header creators I could download that would be compatible with BV0.8. or do you think I should stay with my basic header?????

Thanks

Hey Phil!

I have created you three banners (headers) for your website. Here they are:

There you go! You can save them to your computer and use them on your site. The demention's are 100x700 pixels. I suggest you use a banner rotator on your site so you can show all three at a certain time limit.

Good luck to you!

Good Morning (well it is in OZ)

While I've been asleep overnight in Oz everybodys been busy answering my thread.

All your comments and links are greatly appreciated.

Jeremy, Thanks for the great Headers. Couldn't have done it myself. I'll certainly recommend your services to any one that asks.

Once again Thanks.
