ID card for Nine/ CE wallpaper

Ok. Given the lovely UNIT ID card for Three (Pertwee) that I saw over in doctorwho and the conversation regarding the one that was used for Nine (Eccelston) in "Aliens of London/World War Three" I decided I'd have a go at making a better and more accurate one than the actual prop (which I strongly suspect was some kind of in-joke). So here's my attempt:

Anyone who thinks they can make a better one, have at (and please share). If you want to snag this to archive it or what ever please credit and do not hotlink. Thanks. Enjoy.

Also here's a new Wallpaper I made with pics of Christopher Eccleston (various roles):

(2/9/07 EDIT:*facepalm* realized I forgot to list my sources:
For the ID card: Better with Two and Aftershock. For the wallpaper: Smugmug for the Second Coming cap, Better with Two for the pic of Nine. I seem to have lost the web addy for the third one. I think that candid shot- labled as Chris at home-- came off of Christopher Eccleston info, but if it did, it's gone now. I got that nice picture of Chris as Claude from smugmug. If anyone sees that "exclusive shot", and it's from your site, let me know; I will give credit. Usual tool: Jasc Paintshop pro 9 )

You might want to consider cropping those images in the wallpaper so they're more uniform in size.

I noticed a lot of images in your wallpapers have harsh edges, which make them appear to just be slapped into a background. Feathering the edges and blending the images into the backrounds could help.

Thanks for the suggestions. Regarding feathering: I haven't figured out how to do that as yet. It took me a while just to get that negative image in the ID card. I have used soften/sharpen and blur effects, but they only work on whole (selected) objects. I am not certain that, even if I knew how, that I would use feathering for a plain background like this. I would have used it in my "My Doctor" and "Dream" wallpapers though. As for the way the pics are cropped, I did consider making them all about the same size but something bugged me about cropping them further than they appear above. I'm not sure why. I resized them to fit the wallpaper dimensions and I did try to get the scale roughly close too. I was just going for a minimalist approach, this time around.

Well, you've certainly got MY attention :)

Just wondering where you go that third pic along from? as it was only available for a very limited time online and in a local magazine that only get's distributed to residents of Salford. I'm pretty sure you're not a Salfordian and I also doubt you got it from their online site.

I could have sworn I found that pic at http://www.christophereccleston.info. No, I'm not from Salford... kinda wish I was at times.

Some of my mates are from that area and well it was pointed out to me at the time but even I didn't get a copy because the circulation of the mag was limited to east Salford.

Here. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I can't find the page where I got it from back in January so I put it in my photobucket.
