Should Contrasting Sequel Main Character have a transparent background? I think having the cheerful character on a white background and the moody one on black adds to the image.
It's effectively impossible to see the white background on Normal View.
The page image for Misty May seems to be outdated for Night Vision mode. It's showing white spaces.
Primis fixed it.
I made a transparent version of the Contrasting Sequel Main Character image. Pinging ~Trans Fan 180, who added the image: was it intentional to have Judai on white and Yusei on black to reflect their contrasting personalities?
Yes, having black and white as part of the background was absolutely part of the idea (I felt it wasn't obvious enough, otherwise), but if everyone else thinks the transparent version would look better, I'm fine with the change.
With no background you really can't tell the two are from different series.
How does the background color help that?
If anything, we should have the series' respective logos underneath them.
The white/black contrast makes them feel separate. Without it they just look like the optimistic hero and his cynical friend.
My problem with the white (besides night-vision issues) was the fact that it kinda seemed to wash out the character; while this loses the contrast it looks better aesthetically IMO because there's not an ugly white-on-white situation.

Should I start an Image Pickin' thread for Contrasting Sequel Main Character?
Object Madness has the opposite problem as usual: it looks fine in night vision, but bad in the default view.
GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class has a white background, and I can't find a transparent version. It does have an image links page with other cover illustrations that might work better as the main work page image. Thoughts?
I've been thinking about this for a while now- shouldn't this be in Image Pickin', like the other image maintenance threads are?
I was told to open it here because we had just moved a lot of image-related cleanup threads from IP to here. Apparently people were getting annoyed at all the pinned threads at the top of IP. That was never a big deal to me, though.
Now there's a ton of them though and I feel being in IP would get this more traction.
Stock Shōnen Hero has a white background, I took it to Image Pickiní but it hasnít been opened yet.
...Uh, the reason we have this thread is so people don't have to open image pickin' threads.
The Image Suggestion thread voted unanimously to put this image◊ on Paste Eater, but it has a white background.
Found a transparent version◊.
Yo. Whipped up a transparent version of the 2017 Ubisoft logo to use on the page; the one that's on there now is the version they had prior to that, but it's still being kept per suggestions made here a year ago.
Current page image:
I believe the justification made before was that using the typical all black or all white versions of the logo would be out of place on one viewmode or the other. The blue's derived from the company's identity for its Uplay app, and works with both light and dark backgrounds.

Works for me.
Classic Disney Shorts looks pretty bad in night vision.
The new pic on Scavengers Are Scum needs to be made transparent.
...isn't that image kinda JAFAAC?
