What do you mean?

Does your browser block Picamatic?


Firefox, Opera and IE9 all seem to be :(

Wow, that sucks :(

I can't use Imageshack or that other one because it's blocked on my school computer (I'm in school atm)

I'll keep looking for another one

EDIT: Is the website blocked? Click on the image with the website that I posted and see if you're able to see it (it's the very last one I posted,  above where it says *Click to Enlarge*)

Here. I hope this works:









EDIT: Holy crud, the quality is insanely poor

Try clicking on them for MUCH better quality





Maybe I'll implement Flash with my logo for an awesome effect

Hmm if yours is selected would you like to make one for rbSFML too? ^^

This begins to please me ;)

What I find a little bit disadvantageous is that the ruby/cup of coffee are so close to the neighbored symbols (that was already a problem at the original JSFML logo). It's a little bit too much on that small space... However I don't know where else to place the ruby/cup of coffee :?

I don't think any of them is better than the original.
Nevertheless David's logo is the best shown here. I would strongly condemn the shiny version because its readability is very poor.

I rather like the shiney versions.

The big problem with it is that the background is a fixed color (bluish) with ridged/abrupt edges which makes it difficult to put the image on any background that isn't the exact same shade of blue.

IMO it would be better if it had either more of a clear border around the entire thing (maybe a 3D-pushbutton like effect), or gradually faded off with use of alpha blending.

EDIT:

Also beware that the links to those images are NSFW.  I just went to one and saw a nice porn ad with some topless chick.  Fortunately nobody at work was looking at my monitor at the time.

I think I may have a solution to that

Disch: Holy crap i never knew that  :shock:

Sorry, I can't see the ads, and it's one of the rare non-blocked sites where you can upload images

BTW the background is optional and only for show. I have the psd and can upload it if my design gets picked

With transparent background (I hope):


SFML:


JSFML:


rbSFML:




*Click to show the transparent background & better quality*

And scroll down ASAP to avoid the "NSFW" ads that's blocked on my comp :P

EDIT: Jajaja, if you click on the Feature Gallery tab, a warning pops up saying that they don't filter the obscene images, which probably explains why there's creepy ads

I would make the Java cup of coffee a little bit smaller (the smoke is far above the actual logo at the moment), then one might also recognize it better ;)

P.S.: Could you use direct links to the high quality images? Then we don't need to visit that dubious site...

Since I had no idea what you were talking about, I just uploaded to my previous site, and I'm pretty sure that there are no ads:


SFML:


JSFML:


rbSFML:



*Click on the image for the same reason as last time*




I'm probably gonna end up vectorizing them to make them look cleaner



EDIT: Oops, I completely looked over your suggestion


JSFML (with smaller cup):

I like it. :)

Many edges look aliased, though, any way that can be compromised?
I know that's being picky, but overall it's really great, it should be in a fine tuning stage! ;)

Thanks! :D

Like I said, I might vectorize it at some point to refine the edges
