If you're in Image Ready, its "Save as Optimized..."

If you're in CS3, and it's grayed out, then that mean you were running a trial and its up. =P

Now, I don't know if i'm the only one who's thinking this, but seeing as TWHL3 is using a modified colour theme, shouldn't the smileys use the new colours too? I don't imagine this brownish colour would look too nice on TWHL3's theme. It wouldn't need to be a drastic change, just something that won't stick out so much.

I dunno, I think they're pretty close to TWHL3's color scheme as they are.
Posted 12 years ago2007-07-22 03:49:46 UTC Post #229907
Current TWHL has a black outline around most of it's frames, so the black outline and darker colours of the emoticons seem in place. TWHL3 has a very minimal use of black, the outlines of the emoticons seem like they're going to stand out way too much. I dunno, it just seems that they'll clash with the colours.

thats why i said colour change, but nobody gave it heed.

Well i'm going to see what I can do with my little emoticon, hopefully I can find colours that suit TWHL3 and would be easy to replicate on a number of emoticons.

..and what colours may TWHL3 use then?

Well, I only got MS paint and wally, so couldn't make it transparent. It's crap anyway, but somebody should make something like this:

for gif transparency, under image go to mode than index color...

it'll come up with an options dialog. there is a checkbox for Transparency, click it on and hit ok.

now erase the parts you want transparent and the checkers will show through.

than save as a gif.

I didn't have to save an indexed. Mine are RGB.

GIF pictures are indexed, PS automatically converts them while you save. You don't need to manually convert to index beforehand.
Posted 12 years ago2007-07-23 11:34:18 UTC Post #230046
meh, its kinda a habit to manually do it. i've made too many textures in my life.

when is the deadline for this?

I really suggest you use PNGs, Penguinboy. Not only is the acronym practically your initials, no browser (not even IE6) has problems rendering paletted transparency with them, and they're generally smaller, and definitely free-er.

Aaa, nyaaah, close but no bisquit. IE6 has some problems with displaying normal and transparent PNGs correctly, believe it or not. Sometimes it messes up the colour of them quite badly. Gif is generally the safer (but way more unsexy) way to go.

Why hasn't anyone made the headcrab yet? Or the Lambda?

I've tried a headcrab numerous times. It's VERY difficult to get a good looking one at 15 x 15.

As for the lambda - Rimmie did.

(only difference is the 2nd one's eyes are squinted [wanted to see if it makes him look angrier])

Its mouth is in a smiling position, and the eyes don't stand out enough on that color of red. Fix plox.

The new angry ones are good, but u-u-u-ultra fail (echo) for the Halo one. This is a Half-Life website.

I think the first is the best of the two, personally. Looks more cartoonish, and slightly angrier. I'd vote for it to be used.

Haha I know, I wasn't planning on using the Halo one, just made it to keep myself occupied while I waited for some downloads to finish :P It also looks pretty terrible... I would clean it up and make it look nicer if it even had a chance at making it to the list.
Posted 12 years ago2007-07-27 18:31:12 UTC Post #230444
Bouncing off of that idea, you should do an HEV Suit Helmet instead. Thats has lots of potential for the list!
