The problem with mediafire with images is you can't directly link to the image so that you can show it right there in the forum post or show it in a browser window. You have to download it to your hard disk, then look at it.Yazou wrote:Hmm, I thought that MediaFire do both (files & images). But he doesn't even consider PNG as image format... So I will follow your advice from now .
For the logo, it's really yours : I just used rotation and moreover I used the "CD cover" version. I didn't see that you have posted the logo.
For the effects on the logo, I thought that it will look better. By looking Linux Distributions logo on Wikipedia (openSuSE, Fedora), they look nice and simple with none effects. But on their website, they add some effects on it. So you're right : the official logo should be simple and have no effects. Then we could add some extra on it for the website, covers...
To vectorise your logo, it's easy :
1. Set the background as transparency instead of white.
2. Import it in Inkscape.
3. Select it then do Path > Trace Bitmap > OK.
4. Move the new image (vectorised) and then delete the old one (non-vectorised) that is below.
5. Select the new image then do File > Document Properties > Fit page to selection.
And now you have your vectorised logo .
PS : When I look at ReactOS logo, it reminds me an atom with electrons around or a planet with rings. Don't you guys think the same ?
It is? I thought it was rotated at first, but the perspective on the "Rims" looked off. I didn't draw them as sheared ovals, I drew normal circles, then stretched them with Gimp's perspective tool.
Wow, I had no idea it was that easy! I spent like, 2 hours messing around trying to recreate it @_@
Here is the SVG version of it, then. Feel free to mess around.
EDIT: I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be an atom, with the "Rims" being an outline of the orbits of the electron (which isn't wholly accurate, as electrons don't "orbit" the atom in the same way the earth orbits around the sun).
