This is great for the forum! The tuturial looks great as well! *y* . Hmm, I didn't know there was a batch resizing part in Photoshop, now I know, thanks! I think you should pin this thread so that new comer members may see. Or is that why you have this on a poll?

First I intend to get feedback from the Pirate lads and if the tutorial proves useful I'll share it with the rest of Eurobricks.

Now all we've got to do is wait until someone uploads big images to a Brickshelf folder and then I'll give them this tutorial and see if its any help to them.

Actually I resize my images with the image editing program I use: PhotoSuite II.  It doesn't update pictures in batches, but I only work on one pic at a time.

Well, whatever works for you Broadside.  If you're happy with using PhotoSuite II to resize each image individually then no need for IrfanView.

However, if someone doesn't have a program they can use then this tutorial could be very useful to them.

UPDATE

It was  bothering me how the Creating Thumbnail Links Tutorial was buried 12 or so posts into this thread.  So I split and moved those posts into their own threads then changed this thread into a discussion for Tutorials we don't yet have.  And rewrote Bonaparte's first post X-D

So if somebody wants to create a Tutorial then they post their ideas here.
If somebody wants a Tutorial created for them, then they request it here.

The Creating Thumbnail Links Tutorial has been moved here

I would recommend a tutorial on how to cut out photos and esit them onto backgrounds; however, as I do not use Photoshop (which I think most people do), I can't do it :pir_bawling: But I could do Jasc... :pir-devil:

Why not message the creators? Generally though, it's done using this or this fence piece placed on their side, with 1x1 round plates in various translucent colours stuck in the rectangular spaces to create a pattern :wink:.

Because Evil Willy and Paul Cantu's tutorials are mostly for Original Pirate sets and small pirate sloops. But I am building a the HMS Unicorn and will need quite big sails.
