  3. Is there a pixel preference in height and width? I know it says noticeably longer in length but I just wanted to know if there was a good standard size format you prefer or even a ratio. Thanks!

  4. i would assume 1920 x 1080 as i think that is the modern normal resolution :)

  5. I would imagine so, I just wasn't sure if it was a wallpaper for desktop for a wallpaper for a specific area. If it was a banner I wanted to make sure it was in banner ratio, or whichever. Thanks as always, my favorite Martian.

  10. You and me both! I gotta do some editing but I actually recorded the process of making mine in case anyone was curious how I did it. I'll have that uploaded soon here, just been trying to recover from being sick.
