thank you so much! i was really confused trying to do it on my own. Just by using your instructions i was able to use some free clipart, trace what i wanted in gimp, saves as bmp/jpg and made a couple really cool stamps. YAY!
This has helped. I have made a few seamless that turned out well. I have to quick questions.
1)When I export my patterns where does it go?
2)Do you know how to get rid of that nasty copyright thing on the picture.
I don't know what it's called.
I'm glad to hear the tutorial is helping! Crazyshortkid, when you export patterns, they should appear in your launcher under uploads. To find them more easily, click on tab for patterns only, which looks like a checker board pattern. By the copyright thing on the picture, do you mean a company's, website's, etc. name over a picture? I don't believe you can get rid of this from what I know. What website is the image from so I can try to help more? My only suggestion would be to search for the image elswhere if it has a specific name.
On istockphoto, the only thing I can think of to do would be to click on the small thumbnail of a picture before actually selecting the picture. However, this would mean your image might be rather small and end up blurry.
Thanks so much for the website, iDiru! It looks fantastic for images. Also, I tried making channels for a while but with no luck, so I'm going to take a break for now. I'll probably pick back up working on that once Via Discovolo is done (in a month or so). I'll still be here to answer questions, though, so ask away!
You don't need another pattern creator to create patterns. What you need is a photo editing program. I'd recommend Gimp, since it has many good features and is also free. This is just required for patterns from your own images. You don't need it to create simpler patterns or patterns from images that are already seamless. You can download Gimp here: http://www.gimp.org/ I hope that helps!
sorry if this has been covered aready but i looked through and dint see the answer. i made a pattern and exported it, and saw it in my upload of my launched but i cant see it in my game and cant see how to get it there, anyone know why?
Thorna- I'm not sure if there is a better way, but what I have end pattern and then downloading it from my studio into my game.
RepulsiveDesire1- You can recolor the entire pattern using this tutorial, if that's what you mean, but you can'trecolor individual parts like this. I believe it is possible, but pretty complicated and I'm not sure myself how to. This tutorial just covers the basics of seamless patterns.
