    hey guys.
    just wondering what the best technique is for creating a bios splash screen so that it shows up crisp
    what size, DPI, and colour format etc...
    and how i would create something in a chosen ( say 16bit) colour in PS:CS
    im presuming its 16bit colour ? but im not sure :S

    also advice on fonts... best way to get them to show up crisp :)

    I'm taking a guestimate that it will be 320x240 @ 256 colours, i'd be surprised if it was 16-bit colour!

    thanks mate
    lol i presumed 16 bit was that horrible color settign you get from a fresh XPinstall with no GFX drivers :p
    ill igve it a try... my theory is if it looks good in 256 on PS it will look good on the bios... ive tried a few 'photo quality' pics and they come up terrible... there bust be a kind of point whenre greys are either red green or blue... and they just shot up terribel lol
    thanks
    ill give it a go :p
