ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

Howdy!

This time, let's see your favorite wild west legend. It must be real, non-fictional persons related with the myth of the wild west. Art or actual photos are fine, but no actors playing the person in question (so no Kevin Costner as Wyatt Earp or something like that).

Since entries take their time these days, I'm not setting a time limit just now. Let's see how they are coming.

I'll make the start with James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok:

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

Ar-Pharazon would you hold against me if I suggested to remove the white framing around the photo?

I just think it would make a better avatar -but that's just mho...

I didn't have any framing at first, not intentionally, I was having issues with the transparency in PS.

I have a black framing around the oval shape. How does it look now?

Thing is, it looks better in PS, then when I try to save as .gif, it makes the border look sharper than it did before the save.

Very irritating.

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

It's the same in the GIMP.

It's about how browsers perceive the transparency -afaik.

Just take a look at my current (UTOPIA) avatar¹

What it's doing to me is happening within PS. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, I just don't know what.

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

^I think it's part of the GIF-format - or transparency - rather than the apps you do it in -if you find a way to merge transparent'ish colours with whatever background-colour you post an image on -please let me know! ... I'll become a billionaire and you'll get all the credit

Hmm, gunslingers. Way outside my area of expertise, but I'll see what I can come up with.

I'm hoping there's enough leeway in this sentence:

'Gunslingers' weren't the only legendary 'bandits' in the west... I'm contemplating the mechanical kind.
