New layout and sharing a Grimmjow background

Whoohoo I finally finished working on my new Grimmjow themed layout! Har har. This time I used basic codes by minty_peach. In other words I took this particular layout and modified it to my wishes.

The biggest problem I had to work out, was how to get some of my backgrounds transparent. I tried it with opacity, but it didn't quite work out the way I wanted it to. That was where the LJ community s2flexisquares came in handy. I searched through it and found a helpful entry.

How to reach transparency on entry backgrounds:
Basically you can reach transparency by creating a color filled image in PS, setting it to 80% opacity and then lay it on top of a transparent background. Merge the layers, save it and upload it to an image hosting site and then use that image as a background. That's it. Really simple, ne?!

I only tested the layout in Firefox, my sister told me it looked fine in Opera too. I don't know what it looks like in other browsers though. That's why I'm asking you, if you use a different browser, could you please tell me if the layout looks like this or somehow wonky? That would be absolutely lovely of you!

Oh and I also made my very first wallpaper/background. I always wanted a Grimmjow layout and I loved that sexy silhouette!Grimm image ever since I first saw it, so I thought why not make a background from it.

I like to share:

Gremo likes! No really! You know I don't like Grimmjow that much, but I understand your obsession for him (isn't it great to have a fantastic hobby).

By the way, I really envy your PS skills. I wanted to get better on that part, but sometimes I just have too much stress to take some tutorial and improve my skills. :(

Sorry for spamming! My laptop "entered" before I wanted to enter!
Hahaah, your first comment only consisted of "Gremo". *grins*

I can't understand why you don't like Grimm-baby. He's sex on legs and he's so cool and awwww! What's there not to love about him?

Anyway, I'm glad you like the layout!

Thank you, but I think I'm still not that good with PS. Anyway, it didn't take me a lot of time to "improve" my skills. Just 2 or 3 hours in the evening when I had some time. But it takes a lot of patience!
