Dahmage, did you use a color select tool or did you choose the color manually? When I matched the forum color for April fools before nobody mentioned it being off color, so I’m not so sure it’s a software problem. Just use oojason’s I guess.

i don’t know what i did anymore.

just kidding, color select tool. I had tried to just use the CSS color at first but that failed horribly. probably me being confused about which of the 800 shades of blue-grey this site uses…

So you are saying you are better than me? (it seems that maybe you are) I can’t use oojasons, he just created transparent pngs, those get converted to jpg when you use them as avatars, and lose the fancy transparency.

Jay lets me upload pngs, but they are always converted to jpg on the server. unless the server maintenance on sunday changed that…

Yeah, I suppose you could’ve used the wrong shade.

Hey now, I never said that. I just wasn’t sure what could’ve gone wrong in your avatar. Why people so touchy?

Oh, I didn’t look at what they were.

I guess the lack of winky confused me. Just didn’t want him actually feeling that I was typing with that tone.

Mine looks fine on phone and computer except if I zoom way in I see it is off a little. My sampling method was crude. Does my color not match or change from screen to screen?

you were my inspiration, and it looks seamless 95% of the time. At home i can tell it is slightly off, but here it looks right.

faster than a factory reset?

I know you’re joking, but on Android, press and hold on the browser icon (Chrome in my case). After a second, it’ll start “wobbling” and a popup menu will appear, with the options to uninstall or go to app info. Go to app info, click storage, and then voila - clear cache is right there! Much easier than going through settings, apps, app management, scrolling until you find the browser app…

I keep going to clean the dust spot off my monitor only to discover it’s your avatar.

It’s like it’s quite possible that Picasso would have loved to use Photoshop for some of his paintings if it was available back then, but if you take a picture from Picasso and recreate it in Photoshop, it’s not going to be the same picture and it can hardly be used to demonstrate Picasso’s brush techniques.

“I punch, therefore I am” -René Descartes

“I really don’t see CG as a goal in its own right. I really do believe it’s a tool. In the advertising industry I did a fair amount of CG, so I appreciate it for the tool that it is, and I think technologically where it’s at now, you really can achieve most of your visual goals with either it or a mixture of it and practical effects.” - Duncan Jones
