Images for new ARC Member cards

I'm looking for ARC Members to help me select a handful of background images for the new ARC Member cards that I'm working on.

I can't use just any old image, they have to be free for use in the Public Domain.


The image(s) will be used for the background of the card, and will be dimmed/transparent to about 50% - half as bright - so the foreground text can be read.


Here's four images I'd like Members to choose from:
  1. "Colorful underwater landscape of a coral reef":
  2. "Gulf of Eliat (Red Sea) Coral Reefs"
  3. A ocellaris 2 Sesoko Point
  4. Tubastrea


Which are your favorite(s)?

We are currently without a Membership Coordinator and cannot print cards at the moment.

This thread is just for helping choose the background image for the "new" cards, and is part of a solution that will be coming soon.

Hey G,

I made my vote and wouldn't bother telling everyone what it is...

I'm sure you have, but have you tested the images to make sure the text will be visible ( or at least easily read)?

I tested previously with another brightly colored image, and I used an effect to fade the image so the text stands out.

You can see the previous example here, with the faded image background:

Do we need to ask for a card if we joined and did not receive one or do you already have a list?

I like the sample pdf file with the 2 clowns. An ARC membership card without 2 or more clowns on it; well that's just not right. A reef tank without any clownfish; well that isn't a reef tank at all.

For whatever it's worth, could we just give you a personal photo for the background, i.e. my current avatar on my log on here at ARC would be way beyond words could describe? I understand you have to be careful with photos, i.e. someone taken a photo from another author, but my avatar was taken by me of my 3 clowns.

P.S. My vote is for [clowns] on the membership card.

Right now, we're not printing cards (out of ink), and not taking requests or a waiting list, simply because I can't guarantee a time frame for delivering cards.


The issue is more of a procedural problem with handling the requests for cards rather than finding a person to print the cards - Those that have volunteered, your offers to print cards are appreciated.


Part of what I'm working on is to simplify that process.

Unfortunately I can't use that image officially, as it seems to have been a desktop background wallpaper from Apple...


I may be able to include the user's Avatar picture... perhaps as an inset image, but not the background. Too small for the background.

Just have her [Kate] wearing a cape with lighting bolts with the ninjas just above [a Google's map image of the Great Barrier Reef]. Of course, Kate would be wearing her bikini under the cape. The caption would read [Here to save the Great Barrier Reef!]. Can we get this concept added to the poll question? [LOL]

I like #2 best because it has a good balance of fish and coral. #1 is good also, but doesn't have enough fish.

#1 and #2 seem to be popular, #3 & #4 less so.

I'll leave the poll up for a few days, and I'll see if I can come up with a few other contenders.

I'll run two rounds of polls, with two "winning" images from the first, and then a second poll with 4 more images - best of two in the 2nd half.

End result, four good images to choose from, with the highest scoring image as the default.
