How to start a life thread.

Post by Ice Crambler »

Hello folK!

Well, since I got a pretty active life thread and were asked several times how to do one...... here is a small Tut. how I order/manage my own thread.

Step 1.

Show who you are.

- Screenshots of your Outfits
- Screenshots of your Eq
- Short statement of your person
- which world are you playing
- how it started



Step 2.


Do intresting Screenshots !!!!

No one wanna see a Screenshot where nothing happens, try to press your Screenshot button on level/Skill ups
On same fascinating places, or on massiv pulls, something that people doesn't see all day long.

Step 3.


Edit your Screenshots.

- Use photoshop programms to put masks on it ( learned in the past to use Artweaver)
- Or just use Paint.


Example.

Image

- Make a Screenshot
- mark an area
- paste the area on a new screen
- Add a frame

- Now add a new Screenshot
- and another frame

etc.

Now about the background Collour, you might have noticed, that every post got a different background collour (There exist a white and a blue one)
That means, you add that background collour, that your post will have.

Image

=> Make a screenshot of the Site, make a taste of the background collour and paste it. (the effect will make look like a transparent background)

Now use an Picture upload site.

Some links:

Ofc there exist thousands of ways to start with a life thread.... but well..... thats some basic stuff :)
If you got any question just ask.

Cool, but if I may ask, why wouldn't you make a background really transparent?
It's so easy to do in for example, 'Paint.NET'.
You just gotta open new tab, click ctrl+a(easiest way to select whole picture) and delete/del :P

Also, i would not recommend using imageshack for Tibian pictures, as their security is so poor.
Three times there were few months when people could easily see IP of the host just by having a link to the picture. That resulted in me(and many other people) getting DDoSed by some tibian jerks/kids.

@Edit
Ah, i get it, it's just in case someone wants to stick with the Windows Paint, nvm then!

I use greenshot. It has an option to save directly to images and only capture the window you are currently using
