IMHO, these look good enough for me.

Now, if we could automate this, that would be brilliant. I did some
testing with gd and it looks like it's not very hard once you have the
font, but I'm not sure how much it looks like whatever comes out of
photoshop.

BTW, the font you ended up using eventually is still a proprietary font,
right? And if so which one - we should buy ourselves a "project copy"
assuming your wife still needs her, so we're not stranded again. I'm
sure one of the commercial entities can help out with that ;-)


Either way, can I bug you to create the following images, so we can get
moving on some of the changes. I would like them all in blue, that's
going to work better with the frontpage layout - forget the gray ones.

Also, Dave really wants to see what it looks like with all the headers
in orange (the same one we use for the text header, which is
rgb(236,88,0) or #EC5800.

I'd like the following texts:
FEATURED USER
LATEST NEWS
UPCOMING EVENTS
UPCOMING TRAINING
TRAINING EVENTS
LATEST RELEASES
SHORTCUTS
SUPPORT US
BLOG POSTS
BLOGS
PLANET POSTGRESQL

(there are a couple not used now, because I don't know what they'd look
like. Thus a couple of versions of the blog stuff)

Thanks for the help! Not exactly the one I would have expected to dig
into web image stuff ;-) (no offense intended, of course)
