Graphic/Avatar/Badges/Etc. FAQ

Tue, Jun 19, 2012 at 8:08 AM

Okay so people have been asking CONSTANTLY about signature help, avatar help, badges, gifs, points, profiles, how to make your text colored, how to make it centered, ETC. So I hope that this will help all of you new swifties who have no idea what they are doing.


SIGNATURES/PICTURES/GRAPHICS
Probably the most common question of them all, here is how to put a picture into your signature,profile, etc.
All you do is this: put [ IMG ] link to the picture (right click the picture then click "copy image URL" or something like that) [ /IMG WITH NO SPACES

AVATARS
Not the most common question, but common enough. To put a pictureas your avatar do this:
go to your profile --> click on your little avatar box --> click upload --> click on the picture you want --> click open --> scroll down and hit "update".

BADGES
What are badges? Badges are little things that you earn to make you look cool. Other than that they have no meaning. But they're nice to have.
How do you use them? You don't. They just sit on your profile.
What are they for? Nothing, they just make you look cool. They don't actually do anything but again, they are nice to have.
How can I earn them? There are a bunch of different ones, the most common (soon to be the most uncommon) is the Founder Badge which you get if you were here during the trial period. (Febuary - May 2012). Other ones you usually earn by being social, posting on forums, having a lot of friends, or getting a lot of page views.

POINTS
What are points? They are things that you earn by being social, posting blogs, posting on the forum, leaving comments, etc.
What are they for? Currently, they are just nice little things to have around. But I sent a message asking what they are going to be for and they might turn them into things to trade for merch. Athough, I'm not really sure.
How can I earn them? Like stated above, you can earn them by being social, posting blogs, posting on the forum, or leaving comments. But I'm sure there are other ways.

MAKING GRAPHICS
I want to make a graphic but don't know how! Well there are several things you can do: You can buy a program, download a free program, or use a site.
I want to buy a program, what should I get? The best in the buisness is Photoshop, but if you google some stuff I'm sure you can find something cheaper.
I don't want to buy a program, but I want to download one. What should I get? A very popular choice is Gimp. But you could also find someother stuff if you google it.
I don't want to download a program, what should I use? Picmonkey (begginers), Fotoflexer (intermidiate), Pixlr Editor (expert/gimp level) or Lunapic if you want to make some animations.
NOTE: These are just MY ideas. Go and ask some other graphic makers what they use if you do not want to use the above.

GIFS
What are gifs? Moving pictures.
How can I put them in my signature? The same way you do it with a regualr .jpg or .png picture.

LINKS, UNDERLINING, BOLDING, AND ITACICIZING
link code: [ url = your link url here ] text here something like "my graphic shop" or what ever [ / url ] WITHOUT SPACES IN BETWEEN THE [ url ] OR [ / url]
underlining: [ u ] your text here [ / u ] WITHOUT SPACES IN BETWEEN THE [ u ] OR [ / u ]
bolding: [ b ] your text here [ / b ] WITHOUT SPACES IN BETWEEN THE [ b ] OR [ / b]
itacic [ i ] your text here [ / i ] WITHOUT SPACES IN BETWEEN THE [ i ] OR [ / i ]

COLORING, TEXT RESIZE, CENTERING
coloring: [ color = blue (or whatever color) ] your text here [ / color ] WITHOUT SPACES IN BETWEEN THE [ color = ] OR [ / color ]
text sizing: [ size = 15 (best size for big text. 200 is way to big.) ] your text here [ / size ] AGAIN, NO SPACES!!
centering (this one is a little different) < center > your text < / center > WITHOUT SPACES


EMOTICONS
It's easy: [ smile ] [ sad ] [ cool ] [ heart ] see? This is what those three will look like: Get it?

So I hope this helped. Just ask below if there are any questions.Thanks and have a swiftastic day!
