Thanks for sorting out the permissions guys, these are all good banners.

Sydney: Mar. 7
Muscat: Mar 8.

The Kuala Lumpur banner is great, but the source page has a All Rights Reserved notice on it. Do we have permission to use this image?

Title: Oslo - Akershus Fortress
Description: 700 to 800 year old Akershus Fortress in Oslo seen from Oslo fjord harbor bay
Info: Akershus fortress was first initiated in the 1200s. After a fire in the old city in the 1600s, a new Oslo (or then Christiania) was built closer to the fortress.
Source & Original photo: Cola21 flickr photo. Released under Creative Commons 2.0 - permission not asked yet, I will do so within a couple of days or if I see any interest in it as banner.

Just a suggestion. Oslo unfortunately isn't a city that's too easy to make a banner from, partially because skyline photos are hard to get, there's hills in all directions mostly.

Ok there was a problem with the "aspect ratio" of the banner, as well as a bit of blur and poor colors.

Here I have made a new version of the picture, with better colors and clarity, and without resizing it to banner size totally. Can someone please resize this picture tryin not to destroy the aspect ratio and clarity? I tried my best but it was really hard to make a good resize of the photo that works.



This version of the "banner raw material" has also better colors and clarity, like I mentioned. Details is the same as my previous post.
