To be blunt: not in a design I work on. I can only recommend to abandon the
practice of using images with text built-in in general, against using
images as headers because they are obnoxious and distracting. I also advise
against collages as they look unprofessional.

To the people who are responsible for Kdenlive, kdenliveorg and people who
will write blog posts: please let us know whether you would like this
design to be applied to kdenliveorg or if you prefer to keep the current
look. I hope a decision can be made before or during IRC Cafe on February

By the way, here are screenshots of how the website is supposed to look
like with JavaScript enabled:

Thanks & cheers,
Iwan (qubodup)
