I think I've figured out how BT is doing them, so I can try to put some together when I get home from work tonight. This might be first on the agenda...

Ok, done a few (again, 4000ms, 12pt, I can change settings if need be for consistency). Basically all snark and it's fine if that's not your thing but some people like it (myself included) so there.

These didn't take that long, I can work on more if people want them. Just need pics (that are good as squares) and ideas.

I can't get the font to look right for some reason... using the same font, font size, and border method as before but something's off...

Yeah, I thought it was just the version of the font I was using. I think it may be the file format (png). Try this one:

Still can't get it. It has something to do with the hinting (when I turn it off the letters have the right shape, but the thickness is still off) but it's behaving differently from the ones I'd done previously, and those were always resized to 125x125 .png before the letters were applied.

Can't figure it out.

I'm also reasonably certain now that my timing is off compared to Brad Tolliver's... I think I've got them holding for too long, but I'll leave them as is until I can get an exact time to change them to. Would just update them later then if necessary.

The ones you did look fine. Just for reference the timing between slides is 3 seconds and I put them together on gifgear.com. Then I reduced them <20kb on gifreducer.com. Just for reference it's size 16 (in GIMP) Agency FB Bold Condensed.

Ok. I might redo mine then to see if I can get it consistently there.

Just quoting to get a quick comparison. 16px (rather than 16pt, 16pt looks huge to me) font, no hinting, 3000ms hold time between frames...

EDIT: Looks like it matches. I'll update my others as well, post them all in one post.

That looks great, well done. Yeah, 16px makes a lot more sense.

^ a better option there might be "because of center depth" or something like it.

Late to the **** in a paper bag party but crossing into the Twilight Zone seems like it had theme potential.

Ok, all together now. HSHS, Langway, feel free to use these if you want to feel like part of the group wrt timing and font.

These are absurdly easy to put together now, provided you have a decent pic to work with, so I can do more if people want them.
