I decided to sign up and see if anything "new" would capture my attention and once again I am struck by all the weird graphics some of the people use to promote their products. Some are just poorly designed, while others make no sense at all.
Here is my personal list of graphics that either "should" or "should not" be included.
1)Your Web-Based Help, Support & Service Desk - I had a look at the site and was thinking of signing up, but strange enough the poor graphics led me to believe that the software itself cannot be that great! (Page 14)
2)Now the following was actually intriguing and I decided to sign up immediately.

4)Now this I did not get: Expired Domain Fetcher
What does "It's Texas Size" and a dog have to do with the product? o.O (Page 3)
5)Now if vanity speaks.... "lLet's Build a Web Page" Videos
Contributed by: Claudia Moncalvo Beltran (page 4) - explain how a picture of the woman (I assume its the owner of the product) will be of any benefit to the reader?
6)Another weird graphic that makes no sense... I imagine some fish-i-ness: OPT-IN E-MAIL MARKETING
Contributed by: Jaco Joubert (page 4)
7)Aargh! I went and clicked on the download button for "Gift Manager Pro" and was presented with a site that in my opinion... naw! I am not going there. Revamp and Redo Team in Process- Please do not Visit! lol (Page 5)
8)Create Your Biz in 1 Day for Under Ten Dollars
Contributed by: Vicki Hale - Not bad little graphic, just wish it wasn't so fuzzy! Cute smiley face (Page 5)
9)Is it a post box? Maybe multi-dimensional post boxes within each other's space? o.O
Click Cutter - A "MUST HAVE" Automatic Instant Internet marketing research tool (Page 6)

12)Blue, White, Yellow and Green? Now Yellow and green on it's own go together, and so does blue and white, but all the colors combined for a business card? You would not see me handing out something like that. The graphic can be improved upon 100%.

Overall, the rest of the graphics are fine, just wish that people would learn to create several sizes, so you have a nice little size for giveaways like this. It would look much better if half of the graphics isn't stretched or skewed because of the script resizing it.
Have you ever wondered how people perceive your graphics. In my opinion it can turn away potential subscribers if done badly.
List some graphics that you think could do with a makeover. It doesn't have to deal with the Newbie Giveaway at all.
