Transparent User Icons png format
Playing with Icons
To see the best effect of these, switch back and forth between night mode on your user Icon. The size of the image is only 100X100, but worked out pretty well. Four of them in a row make for a nice divider also I think.
So not wanting to be left out, I thought I would try to alter my granite pic. He is twice as large as the moose coming in at a whopping 200X200 size. I still think he is a cute little dog. So here he is facing to the right now, and standing center stage by himself.
One of the people I admire on Steemit is @thedarkhorse. he does a lot for the new users and for helping drive the engagement levels up on steemit, through his @PIFC. I have gotten busy in other aspects of my steemit time, so I no longer get over there to enter, but I still manage every now and then to drop by and do some voting when I have not devastated my vote power. The only reason I want steem to increase in price is so that I can vote more often.
His ICON looks cool in the night mode, but not all of us use the night mode, so I thought I would play with his icon a little bit. His were 128X128 sized pictures.
The first picture is the one he uses, the second one I removed all the black matter, then the third I re-applied the interior black matter, so that it was a dark horse.
So what do you think. Do we need more transparency on steemit or what? So there are a few of the images I played with. No digital paint pad, or any fancy software stuff, just the free Paint.net program and a mouse on a twelve year old or older mouse pad, all done while relaxing, and sometimes having to lean forward to see what I was doing in my lazy boy recliner. Don't forget to check them out in night mode.
The bee was one of my pictures from this post at the bottom. The bee ICON is 170X177, I can't draw a very even square. https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@bashadow/a-wednesday-yard-walk.
