Try creating a banner with a horizontal width of (say) 3000 Pixels.  This might give a banner that won't look too distorted at the extremes.

That's a great idea.  That way it's either half stretched or half squished, so it will look more normal.

 

I went ahead and created a 1080p version, and even stretched to 4K it looks okay, so for this one I'll just stick with 1080p.

 

Since we seemed to be missing some AMD love in here:

The banner I created is very dark, and needs a lighter box at both ends to make the text overlays readable, but the size of the necessary box changes depending upon the smoosh/stretch factor.

 

Since you can now specify the text color on the banner as well as the color of the menu bar, I no longer worry about lighter overlays on the ends. If I change banners and the text doesn’t show up well, it is easy to change the text color.

 

So far, I have found that white text seems to show up well even on very busy scenery/photography banners (as you have also done). I also change the menu bar color to one that is complementary to the banner color(s).

Wow, these are really great! I've created a new Gallery with all of these banners uploaded in one place. Feel free to view, rate, comment and upload any new banners there. Great work everyone!

I can't see the gallery you created, or any galleries at all.  Is this section of the forum invite only?

Thanks this one looks fantastic with my unraid theme.

That looks awesome! What theme are you using? My dashboard doesn't look that good. (v6.6.6) (I like how your items are separated in to columns with boxes.)

You will need to move to the Next branch as it is a feature of 6.7.0-rc series.
