I read on Relic News about how to make a banner and a badge, but I didn't understand it very well since it was my first time. Actually, I'm not really trying to make one. I have a symbol that I want as a badge and a banner. Well it's actually a screenshot of a symbol on a mod for a game, but now I'm just making things confusing. So I was wondering if it was possible and if so how to make a banner and a badge out of an existing picture/symbol/screenshot whatever you want to call it.

Heres one tutorial,

RelicNews Forums - How to Make Banners and Badges

the dowfiles one is missing, i find it easier to use paint.net instead of photoshop, its free and just as good.

Ok I got Paint.NET, I open the picture I wanted, resized it to 64x64 pixels, and saved it as a .tga file to my Badges folder, and it didn't show up in the game. I followed the instructions from link you gave me, so what did I do wrong?

okay resize it to to 64/64. Then go to channel and create a new one. Normally this would make a black alpha channel. Just color it in white. (black - transparent, white =opaque) Then save it as a 24bit TGA

Don't mean to sound stupid, but wouldn't that get rid of any color to the picture? Sorry I don't use programs like Photoshop or Paint.Net, so you might have to dumb down what you said a little.

No it would not. You should have 2 tabs.

a) layers (here is what you normally see - your colored picture b) channels - normally you would see 3 red/green/blue (each should be in greyscale.). You just another another one an alpha channel

I'd be willing to make you a banner or badge for a very reasonable fee. Especially if you are providing the images.

Pricing and Examples

^different type of badge.

You know what, if you'll still be unable to make the file. Just send me the image for a banner and badge and I'll resave it.

Moving this thread to the Graphics section, as it has more to do with graphics than it does DoW.
