Hey, all...

In keeping with the community spirit, if anybody has a killer photo of a local foodstuff, I'd be all to happy to add it to the banner rotation, with a little credit for the member in the corner. It has to be pretty hi-res since it's a large banner, and if you're not well-versed in Photoshop I can clean it up if it needs a little exposure or color correction, that kind of thing. If you have one and you're not sure whether it'll work, just drop me a PM.

What's the banner size in pixels to make it easier on everyone?

I'm not sure which one you're looking at (there are five that rotate randomly), but if it looks spicy, I'm guessing it's the water-boiled beef at Szechwan Palace.

Beautiful, phxmacbear! I'll put one of 'em up. Do you have a favorite? I'm leaning towards the Thai toast... I'd pick up the orange in the lettering.

I need you to email it to me, though. When it's uploaded as an attachment, it's downsampled to 800px width. You can click on the envelope to the right to email me.

Yeah, I liked the orange splash in that Thai Toast picture, too...that's one positive thing about Pete's Thai - the presentation was very nice!

I'm partial to the pic of the seeds, only because I smell that picture when I look at it. :)

I don't have the picture here at work with me, so I'll mail it to you tonight (crosses fingers and hopes to remember to do this)
