Problems with Store background images

I have a problem with the images that the Store team pick for the Store. Could one of the mods please draw this to the attention of the team?

 

They do it over and over again. Not every month, but not so very rarely either. :smileymad:

 

Some of the images they pick are just too light for the text that goes over them. Either that or they need to introduce a much darker drop-shadow under the text.

 

I've reported it more than once in the Store blog update, but I think I've been ignored or misunderstood. I've mentioned it more than once in the forums.

 

Last month, I started taking pictures, because I don't think I'm getting my point across. On 14th March, it looked like this (as I've already mentioned):

 

 

This week, it's actually worse:

 

Now I realise that there are many other 'view modes' to choose from, and light-coloured backgrounds only affect the one view mode with text... But I always browse the store in this mode because it's the only one that gives a description of the item (so you can easily tell if it's a game, demo, DLC, theme, avatar, video, whatever) and because, more importantly, it gives the prices.

 

 

When will this madness end? Somebody pleeeeease sort it out!

Why on earth do they not just make the icon backgrounds dark? It's really not rocket science...

Yeah - I can't use my favourite theme because it renders the PSN notifications in the top right hand corner useless. It makes them white text on a white background... Genius.

Another issue i have noticed today QW is the visibility of the red purchased icon on the new 'Essentials' range. Red icon over the red edge of the Essentials branding very clever.

Thanks. It would be simple to put a little dark or light border round the red purchased icon... but maybe I'm being naïve. :|
