Is there an easy way to add the crystal.cafe watermark? what font/size/shading etc. is it?

Anonymous Admin 8


I used Consolas (10pt), here's a template with the text. Please add a 2px stroke for visibility :)

Anonymous 14


I made this one. Appropriate? Not cute enough?
If it's suitable I can stick the watermark on it later.

Anonymous 15

Hold on, I think I messed up the dimensions. Sorry about that, I'll be back later with the fixed version.

Anonymous Admin 16


This is the current spoiler image btw, a prettier one would be appreciated!

Really cute!

Roughly 300px is enough, it will be resized automatically.

I added both, thank you! It will take a bit until they show up.

the picture is cute, but the text needs a white border or something to be readable.

Anonymous Admin 35

Wait, wait, we're allowed to use our own fonts? I thought we had to use the template, hnnng. Lemme go to sleep and remake them when I get up :'D

Oh thanks. I see a lot of the board is embracing the whole 80's anime/vapourwave vibe so I thought I'd hop on board. Gonna remake them tonight though.

Might just be me but I'd feel mighty uncomfortable having an icon of paedophilic apologism as one of our banners.

Anonymous 144

I never saw the movie, but the book didn't read to me as apologetic at all. I can see the movie playing more sympathetic, though, what with Dolores being older and whatnot. However, the movie was also an undeniable fashion influence on several styles popular by users of the board… I can see being uncool with pedophilia but I'd argue the banner symbolizes something different from that.

Anonymous 145

That's what I was thinking. Bad idea

Anonymous 146

no thanks

Anonymous 153

>the movie was also an undeniable fashion influence on several styles popular by users of the board

The movie itself never influenced Japanese fashion lmao. At some point the Japanese picked up different variations of the word for themselves (someone more familiar with language could elaborate, I know there's various spellings that refer to different ideas in j-popculture).

But the "lolita" they use for Lolita fashion, or even when they refer to it in Larme, is meant to interpret child-like cuteness/innocence within an adult female. It's basically just an adult who has retained some element of childhood wonder.

That's very much the exact opposite of the "lolita complex" in the western world which is used to describe underage, presumably innocent, girls that are promiscuous and troublesome towards older males. It's a construct used to excuse and defend pedophilia.

So obviously we don't want to promote the movie or book here. Regardless of the original intent of the author, it represents a twisted male viewpoint of female innocence nowadays.

Anonymous 155

Oh my god that Anon actually meant lolita fashion? I thought they were talking about larme, because of the heart-shaped glasses.

Anonymous 157

That anon here and I wasn't specifically talking about lolita fashion, although I do think the actual origin of the word "lolita" there is much more nuanced than what you're saying.

If I had to name j-fashions directly influenced by the movie, I'd say Larme, although I'd be surprised if that was the only one. The movie had a huge influence on runway fashion in the west too, which I'm sure some of us are interested in as well.

Also just because something was inspired by the fashion of the movie, doesn't automatically mean it's a weird ageplay thing or has anything to do with pedophilia.

Anonymous 162

I would agree with you if the primary theme of the book/movie was its motifs or costumery, but everybody knows exactly why it's infamous and it's got nothing to do with fashion. Banners are supposed to be representational of both a board's vibe and it's userbase, and to me having an image of a fictional 12 year old rape victim projects something I'd rather not be associated with personally. I'm imagining now how the average Neckie would interpret it if they saw it.

>"one of their banners is a picture of Nabokov's Lolita. Even these dumb whores can't deny that they're inferior to prime 12 y/o pussy lmao"

Anonymous 167

If we make decisions based on how men will misinterpret things then we're still catering to them even in our own space.

Before I was just passively defending that anon's decision to make the banner, but now I really want the banner to run, if it's going to rustle neckbeards' jimmies in addition to being totally relevant to lots of fashions on this board.

Anonymous 169

You're kind of zeroing in on only one of my arguments and disregarding the others. I'm just saying that I personally do not feel comfortable having a photo of a fictional, adolescent rape victim representing my posting activities, but then again I'm not an Admin and it's not up to me. That's just how I feel.

I'd love to make a banner out of this and have managed to resize it.
But because it isn't a gif, I haven't been able to add text over it with gifntext which anon recommended.
I've done so in paint, but I'm not sure how to add the 2xp stroke to make it more visible.
Help would be appreciated for a tech illiterate like me, thank you!

I've been wanting to submit a banners or two and I just wanted to ask if you have an easy way to get the banner text onto a GIF or still image?

Ah, i personally use photoshop cs6 since it's the most comfortable to use for heavy editing, but if you don't have access to that someone upthread mentioned ezgif and it seems legit enough and easy to use.
