Feature 3 - 125x125
Bookmark Tags
Desktop

We were working on something for July's news:
https://bug885529.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=770240&t=1PVmnXIVUY

Can you try and cut out some of the tab area above the awesome bar, and white space on the right so that the circle isn't cut off and the focused part of the circle might can be a little bigger/zoomed in?

We'll get the EN version looking perfect and then I'll send on the l10n screenshots for editing.

----
Feature 4 - 125x125
Firefox for Android 

Carry over from August for l10n versions - will use:

Feature 5 - 125x125
People’s Choice Award Winner
Firefox Flicks

I'm thinking it'd be cool to have an Oscar-like trophy image that's a gold Foxy... :)

Hi Jess, 

I'm going to assign this over to Matt. I need to push back on the due date, since it only leaves four days and he has several other projects that are also due next week. I hate to say it but it might be more realistic that he can finish this by September 4.

Cool deal - thanks for the heads up. We can make the 4th work if needed.
Thanks, Jess.
Due Date: 2013-08-27 → 2013-09-04
Howdy! I just wanted to check in to make sure we're still looking good for the 4th? Thanks!
Hey Jess, 

I am aiming for end of day on the 4th.  I will keep you posted.
Thanks MT! How's it going?
Hi Jess, just about finished. However I am still tracking down the feature 1 graphic (I think Ty created this, but I believe he is on PTO). Also I am unable to track down the theme graphics with the links you've provided.  In the meantime, I can start posting what I have finished.

Hey MT!

Thanks for these. I see what you mean about the broken theme links! Thanks for flagging. Can you try these theme links?

For Feature 1: Do you know when Ty's coming back from PTO?


I'm loading in the other images now to see how they look in the newsletter. I'll keep you posted on any edits or if we're good to go.

Thanks!

Jess
Heyo!

I just played with the images and have some edits:

* Feature 1
Bug 888355 - maybe Sean can help get you the PSD? If not, can you resize this image?


* Feature 2
Thanks for giving my direction a stab. I think it's just a little too crowded to see/process what's going on in the image - and it's going to be a lot of work to properly localize the image into 7 more languages.

What do you think about just showing the blue star in the URL bar? Maybe with a little bit of the the gray/brown/black drop down section showing like you've just clicked it? Maybe even include a cursor clicking on the star?


* Feature 3 = perfect


* Feature 4 = we're going to go with the slightly taller, but it works image:
http://image.e.mozilla.org/lib/fe9915707361037e75/m/1/125x130_android_02.jpg


* Feature 5
I love the logo trophy! (best for our localized newsletter too :) )  
What do you think about taking away the whole background color(s) and just have the trophy with the shadowing below it? I'd like for it to match the style of the mobile image that's cut-out and not a solid block.


* Addon Typing lessons
Can you make the keyboard artificially bigger and crisper?


* Addon Google Translator
Can you make the T crisper?


Thanks MT! Let me know what you think.

Jess, I've reworked this one to put more focus on the blue star..but I also wanted to give it a bit of context, so I didn't zoom in too much...also added the arrow cursor to show what we are looking at.

Hey MT - these look much better! Thank you for hopping on it so quick!

I like the direction you took with the bookmark image. I have a few last edits if you can try finagling it a little more:

* Show the end of the URL bar so that it doesn't look like the URL bar was cut off so abruptly
* Add in some fade to the sides (at least the bottom and right sides) kinda like this image: https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/gallery/images/2013-03-13-15-27-12-4f0679.png


After that, we're just lacking the logo evolution image (Feature 1) - and the 4 themes for this month.  Do you think you can crank these out today or by Monday mid-day perchance?

Thanks again for your help this month.

Jess

Hey Jess, give this one a try.  I've kept it so that the natural rounded top right, and faded out the bottom and left side.

I am still working on sourcing the original graphic for Feature 1.  Out of curiosity, did you want all the info that is on the original to appear in the 125x125 size? I am worried that it will be a bit cramped if thats the case.  Here is an example of the original scaled down. http://cl.ly/image/2u2l3J032Z1A

Oh no! I'm looking for a horizontal big image for this one (check out comment #1)

Feature 1 - 300px wide no more than 250px tall (if possible)

The new bookmark image looks fantastic!
My mistake on the sizing for Feature 1! But I think I will still need to work from the PSD in order to arrange if for those dimensions. Can this one wait until Monday? Hopefully I can connect with Ty on it.

I was doing some surgery on the jpg you posted and managed to create a layout that might work for the 300x200 size.  Although I wasn't able to get the title 'Firefox logo evolution' in the graphic...is this something that could be added in the written blurb next to it?
Great work! The image looks perfect post your surgery skillz and will work seamlessly across all locales! \o/

Brilliant.

On that note - I think we're done here! Thanks again MT! Have a great weekend!
