Does anyone have any photos of their curry cooking efforts, that they are particularly proud of and would like to be included in the random banner at the top of the index page of the forum?

If so, please post them here, then perhaps we could ask other members to vote for their favourites for inclusion in the random banner.

Similarly, if anyone has any suggestions (or, better still, actual designs) for a better banner, then please let me know.

Cheers,
Regards

CA (aka Admin) :)

I was thinking about having a go at taking some good quality snaps, CA, for consideration, but as the KB size is restricted on the site I do think this prevents some curry pics looking their best.

Are we ok to email you images for consideration instead?

By the way, it's a great idea using genuine curry pics from forum members instead of air brushed, glossy mag shots :D

Hi Alchemist,

Thanks for your comments and suggestions.

The photos in the forum banners are actually of pretty low resolution (and certainly consistent with the size limit imposed on image uploads on the forum).

However, I have absolutely no problem with members emailing me with higher resolution photos of their curries, for inclusion in the forum banners, if they wish (email: bircurries@hotmail.com)...though I'll probably end up shrinking them, to fit, anyway.
Regards

To be honest. Forget exactly, but all the curries are either chicken tikka/lamb madras/vindaloo/Pathia except for the sizzle dish photo, that is chicken tikka shashlik (improvised forgotten experiment).

The madras/vindaloo are the CA recipes.
The Pathia is adey Payne curried away.
Naan breads Happychris recipe.

All of them are uploaded and appear to randomly rotate OK for me. Perhaps you need to clear your browser cache, or something?
