I took this cool screenshot ingame after both mine and my enemy's tanks exploded and then I thought "this is nice for a wallpaper" and so I tried to make one out of it.

Unfortunately the part of the picture that is usable is not so big so I had to resize the image and it looks a bit grainy.. I also wanted to add something fitting, like "War is hell" in the upper left corner, and the WoT logo in the lower right. I found the logo and tried my best to paste it in whiled deleting the white background. Unfortunately I'm not an artist in the slightest so no matter how I try the text came out crappy looking. I can't find the right colour.

So.. Below I add the unfinished image and if you want to help, I can upload the image without the logo if you can make the border less visible. Also, if you know how to make text look good, or can do it yourself, please add "War is hell" to the upper left corner. Preferably just above the slightly visible lines of the aiming crosshair. Or any other brief text you feel is fitting in that place.

As I said, only a quick go. Might give it another shot later.

Thank you! Those are some awesome fonts man :D
I'll give you +1 as soon as my daily limit is reset.

EDIT:
And you even added smoke to that. Wow :0

Thanks, as I said I gave it a quick shot (smoke turned out better than I thought it would) :) Would be it possible if I could have the original image to work from?

No problem. Here is the full screenshot (with the enemy indicator and crosshairs. I removed them using a copy tool) and the cropped file before stretching it to 1680x1050. Maybe you can resize it in a prettier way because I just used a lancos something algorithm which I think is the best?

Cheers, I'll have a play and see what I can do :)

EDIT: This is the result of my 'play'...

Sure someone out there will be able to do a far, far better job than I, as I'm not particularly good at digital arty stuff, so I hope someone else takes up the challenge and does a better job  :Smile_honoring:
