I was commissioned to add a temporary equipment sale page for Mike & Jean's Berry Farm in Mount Vernon, WA. I felt there was a need for the temporary pages to have a header image like the other pages on the site for consistency, and felt this would be a quick enough fix.
I based the header images on the already-existing images on the main website. We still had most of the source materials available, though there was a missing image mask. I was able to make use of Photoshop to set up an image mask very close to the original header images' masks. I then managed to make the new headers virtually identical to the originals for the temporary pages.
I further optimized the images in order to reduce file size without sacrificing image quality.
Several years ago when I was a web designer for JJJCOM, I was tasked with creating a web site for Clites Design & Builders. While this was a prototype site that was never fully deployed (as the project was placed on hold by the client due to their workload and my departing that position), I do include it as a sample.
A header image I created for a test site of mine. I gathered some public domain pictures (except one which was Creative Commons, which I attribute below).
