:lol: I'm just saving some links from the blender forum, because I don't think we will have one, when the forums comes back, and I know the Voice forum will be made.

 

 

it will just be Idol, Voice, SYTYCD, DWTS, and Off Topic, maybe and Entertainment forum.

If they can save new threads then you can post stuff you find in here also to save it, even if it's not from this forum. just in case o:)

Welcome to Imagery Discussion! Yay! Below are the most frequently asked questions in the forum. If, for any reason, you have a problem with the description (IE, It doesnt work for you), just post about it, and someone will do their best to help you. Good Luck!

----------

 

How do I make/get a Blend?

 

Make a Blend

To make a blend, most blenders use either Paint Shop Pro (PSP) or Photoshop (PS). Both are very pricey, PSP being more affordable, but lots of people prefer PS. Try free-trials before you purchase.

 

Here is a tutorial for blending in PSP

Here is a tutorial for blending in PS

 

Request A Blend

If making a blend is not your thing, request a blend in the Blender from one of the artists. (IMG:http://images.idolforums.com/style_emotico...df/thumbsup.gif)

 

----------

 

What are blinkies/How do I make blinkies?

 

They are made with many programs, including Animation Shop, which is extremely user friendly.

 

Making a simple blinkie in Animation Shop

Step One: After you have made your image in your image program, copy and paste it as a 'New Animation' in Animation Shop.

Step Two: Then, change the font color/what you want to blink back in your image program, then paste it 'After Current Frame' in Animation Shop.

Then, save it! You have a blinkie now!

->To change the time that each frame flashes for, right click on the frame, go to 'Frame Properties' and edit the number.

 

Putting a Blinkie in my signature

Easy! Just follow the instructions for adding a blend to your signature (IMG:http://images.idolforums.com/style_emoticons/idf/happy.gif)

 

----------

 

How do I download and install fonts?

 

***The Font Bible Thread***

http://idolforums.com/index.php?showtopic=204692&st=0

 

After the font is unzipped it should go into the

 

C/Windows/Fonts folder, then it will be available to all programs on the computer

 

Downloading Fonts

Downloading fonts is as easy as clicking the link and saving the file, but there are usually lots of questions on common fonts

Some commonly used fonts include:

Baby Kruffy

Base 02

Delarge Marker Pen

Desyrel

Hour Photo (Used to make Filmstrips)

New Romantics

Scriptina

Will & Grace

.....For more fonts, see the Font Bible

 

Installing Fonts

 

Windows XP

Once you download the font, go Control Panel>Fonts>File>Install New Font. Then find the path to the font you saved, and hit OK.

What are textures and how do I use them?

Textures are just 'backgrounds' or collages of many images. patterns and gradients all swacked together and effected, and they are used on graphics to create depth and effects.

 

 

Finding Textures

There are many sites with textures, including

http://www.deviantart.com/resources/textures/

 

 

Using Textures

No matter what program you are using, just copy and paste the texture on top of your graphic and change the 'Blend Setting', to something like overlay or screen, or change the opacity.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD A TEXTURE, JUST COPY AND PASTE IT.

(IMG:http://images.idolforums.com/style_emoticons/idf/flowers.gif)

What are brushes/How do I download brushes

To Optimize.....In Photoshop

 

To optimize a JPeg---File- save for web, the adjust the quality to make it fit the number you need.

 

Gifs--all animated files must be gifs, jpgs cannot move. simple blinkies are usually very small. In ImageReady--to optimize your image lower, you can change the number of colors that are used and the quality by adjusting numbers in the optimize window. Try all the different options---When you get it down to the right size--Save optimized as in ImageReady.
