A little layout guide for those who want to give making one a try

Post by Haruchi on Tue Jan 03, 2012 12:46 pm

This mainly contains the sizes and structure of layouts used in WoB. If you have questions, feel free to hit me with a PM.

Downloadable .PSD with Bloo's parts: mediafire.com ?2042dyh0qdv8d0a




1. Main Background

The main background can be one big image, or a repeatable pattern as used in the layout above. The small column in red shows its size relatively well. Note that if you choose to use a big imagine, different resolutions make its looks differ. An okayish size might be ~1200x800 pixels, perhaps. It depends.

2. Container (text-area/background)

Width 768 pixels, height 1 pixel. The height doesn't have to be only 1 pixels. Now, this is mainly a pattern, or another repeatable image. It's repeated downwards, so make sure it looks alright and that there are no 'seams'.

3. Banner

The banner used in the example is 768x100 pixels. Do note that the banner doesn't have to be rectangular. I personally am not too fond of them.

4. Header (of container)

Width 768 yet again, and height 20 pixels. The header is made so it fits seamlessly to the container and banner.

5. Footer

There also is a footer that isn't in the image above. It can be found from the bottom of the page, and is where credits and such go. It's done similarly to header; made to fit seamlessly to the container.



Protip: Crop the images so that there are NO transparent pixels around them (banner's sides are an exception, depending on the design). Also, save them in .PNG format, but keep a .PSD/.XCF (Photoshop / GIMP) file that contains all of the parts positioned as you wish them to be. The .PSD / .XCF file will most likely be asked if your layout design is accepted.

Remember to keep your layouts Bleach-themed!

Bleh, .PSD link added. Yes, it hsa only the parts of Bloo; no layer settings or anything. Those you'll have to figure out yourselves, for they are layout-specific anyhow.
