Lightbulb for fun: motivational posters...

I recently saw a website that featured many "motivational posters" geared for RPG's (roll playing games) that were created by the members of that forum. Many were hilarious and well-done. I thought it would be fun to take that idea and focus it towards the gun world, and see what our members can come up with.

You can make these posters one of two ways:

1: I have templates (for both landscape and portrait layouts) made up in Photoshop for all you Photoshop users out there. You just insert your image, and change the text, and save as a jpg. Here are the templates (NOT dial-up friendly - 1.6MB each), set up at 300dpi for quality printing:

http://home.comcast.net/~dave_in_del...-landscape.psd
http://home.comcast.net/~dave_in_del...e-portrait.psd

or

2: For dial-up users, or people without Photoshop, I found a link to an awesome little online program that creates these posters for you:

http://flagrantdisregard.com/flickr/motivator.php

All you do is provide a picture, and add your text, and change colors (if you want). I'm not sure if you can then save your image to keep it, or if it stays on that website, or what. I've never used the site to create these posters, but it seems to be pretty self-explanatory.


Now, keep in mind, this is strictly for entertainment's sake! You can make your posters serious, funny, personal, whatever you want. The point is to have fun making it, and then share it with your XDtalk family! I'm sure everyone will have some great posters with great pictures and sayings!

Here are my contributions to this thread. I made them using my Photoshop template. They're reduced in size for bandwidth, so if anyone wants a copy for their own use, let me know and I'll give you the full-size.


(Thanks to XDman1000 for the motivation here)

(I just had to make a poster of him!!)


I think you get the idea. Have fun everyone!

Although this is not my idea, I liked it so much I had to buy the T-Shirt. You should see the looks I get from Liberals when I wear it! I love it!

For anyone interested, these are available from ThoseShirts.com

Bwaaahahahahaa!! We haven't set a date yet... but that whole long distance thing isn't working out for us.... so I think it might be over....

Smartass!!

You *do* know that R/T's color scheme was the inspiration for my fiancee's gift, right? They're really two different guns. No, really.... honest....
