 Subject: RE: ACNA Presentation Template - Crunch
I am having a problem.

Because the background image in the ACEU14 set is all JPEG with no way to take it apart, I
looked at the others on SourceForge.  They each have problem, especially with the name and
location of the conference being bolted into the feather images as combined raster/JPEG images.

So I come back to the one from nick:

 1. The feather and typography about the conference are beautiful to me.

 2. It is designed for a dark background and that matters these days.

 3. The name of the conference is a slight problem because "North America" cannot fit in the
style used for "Europe".


There are three versions of the background, varying where the logo goes and some small details.

The problem is that the three versions are each single JPEG files.  That is, the 
logo, and other components of each background are not separable components.


If Nick has original graphics in which these are separated, especially vector graphics except
for the building and overall background image that I will replace anyhow, I can move ahead

If not I am seriously stuck.  Morphing the jpegs directly strikes me as a Waiting to Fail. 
I would rather fail now, though I have no great Plan B.  And I love Nick's feather image.

I assume that is what I am working on.  I am adapting ACEU 2014 for ACNA 2015 as easily as

I assume that any IP issue is solved when the image is replaced.

I'm also assuming, based on silence, that this template was used and none had a problem with

If there is a particular place to upload it, I need to know about that too.

Sorry for jumping into the discussion late, but is there a chance for
[semi-]official templates to be available for ACNA15?
