    Default How To Use a Sig/Image Guide

    If you don't know what an image host is, pixel dimensions, or the difference between .jpg and .png, then you probably need to read this thread, if you want to navigate the internet at all effectively.

    The internet is largely made up of images and you will want to use them alot for various reason but alot of people don't quite understand how they work or how to use their forum signatures and avatars, or even how images work at all, and most end up accidentally lowering the quality of their sigs, or getting confused. Here is what I hope is a simple, easy to understand explanation to how images work in the forums.

    The basics

    Quality.

    Spoiler:


    Sizes.

    Our Forum

    I) Signatures

    Spoiler:


    II) Avatars

    Spoiler:


    III) In-Game CoA's (Coat of Arms)

    Spoiler:


    Signature Rotators


    Spoiler:


    Graphics Forum Dictionary
    (Under construction)

    I think that's the basics, if anyone thinks of anything else to add please let me know and I will include it, I would like to make this a general reference point to direct people to, so anything you have to add, let me know.

    Very good read Harb

    Just some suggestions for future updates on this, you may need to include how to add an avatar on, how to add a personal COA in-game, and how to add a tribe COA in-game. That way every TW related question will be answered

    I'll update it shortly with COA's and avatars (Unless someone wants to write a section on it, feel free :P)

    I might include a "dictionary" of terms aswell commonly used in the graphics forum and in general related in images/graphics.

    Edit: updated with avatar/coa information.

    You may also want to spoiler each section with a header above it,

    making it much easier for people to target the specific section they would like to read

    Added a section on sig rotators. Please let me know if you think of anything else useful to add, so we don't have to repeat ourselves anymore :O

    Started on the graphics dictionary. If anyone has anything they can add to it, please post it, it would make it alot easier and quicker :P

    I don't know how many viewers here have browsed the .us forums lately. I actually didn't know that other servers had the same thing, as I don't browse other tw forums, as most are in other languages.

    Given the amount of people coming through here that don't know a thing about images and how to use them, I would say it was needed here.
