Description (last modified by lemon-head)

I played a bit with different background images for our teaser, especially trying how it looks with a photo background:


  • flowers
  • plants, grass
  • animals
  • material
  • landscape
  • painting
  • picture of a busy street..
  • if we show people, it would better not be a close-up photo: that's going to steal too much focus, and does not work as a background. Maybe a painting would be the better choice?

I came to the conclusion that almost everything looks more interesting and alive than our mono orange teaser background.

The more challenging criteria:

  • it needs to look ok with font in front of it.
  • it needs to look ok in a horizontal bar like our teaser.
  • it needs to look ok with the rest of the page
  • it should not be too distracting, and should not steal away focus from the page content. You should look at it, be happy, and then read what the page says.
  • it should extend to the menu items.
  • should be somewhat related to adventure, traveling, nature, world. Maybe not so much with hospex, as this would involve happy people which is not nice as a background.

What would be nice to have:

  • the image could tell a story.

Special feature:

  • exchangeable image
  • different images for different subpages
  • members can choose an image for the profile

What I really don't care about:

  • I don't care if it's orange.

Wow, I didn't know about your preference in that direction... So you want even more color and distraction? :P

Seriously, I'm not sure wether it's a good idea to go in that direction. Then maybe it's better to start working on the simplified drafts I came up with or something else. Otherwise - come up with some drafts! I'm curious. ;)

What about this ticket? I think a colorfull background image won't fit at all to the new layout...

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

no background images .... please.. ;-)

teaser is gone anyway.

If we would NOT have a lot of content like on simple website a photo teaser is a good thing. But we have so many things on bw that there would not be space for large pics
