Hiya all! Great community, I am the founder of S.H.I.N.E. a City of Heroes Super Group site. I would like to create a really neat banner like other sites have but have no idea where to start... what piece of software do people usually use when creating banners and how do that get all the cool typing (font) in there? Thanks!

Most Guilds that have nice looking banners - also have some sort of graphic designer in their Guild.

The software used is typically Photoshop - this is commercial software and come with a commercial price (e.g. about £500 in the UK).

Chance are, there is someone in your Guild that does have the software (perhaps at work).  So ask your Guild for someone to make a banner.  The fonts are either i) standard PC fonts, ii) free license stoof, or iii) licensed - i.e. again a designer will have these.

A nice site for fonts is FontFreak
