We Need Pics

We want to start adding images to the bestiary and also fashion shots to the item pages. To see what I mean about fashion pics, check out the Lucky Fishing Hat. Basically it should show that individual item worn on a character. If you are interested in helping out, please take screen shots (the Print Screen key takes WoW Screen Shots) of any mobs you come across or any armor and weapons you or your friends are wearing and then crop them and convert them to either jpeg or gif format. For mobs, please turn on the names before taking the shost. Also, please keep the file size as small as possible. Feel free to discretely add your character or guild name somewhere on the pic to get credit for them. Then e-mail them to me at allakhazam@allakhazam.com. Please include WoW Picture in the subject line so I can sort them easier. Also, make sure you mention what item or mob the picture belongs to. Because of the sheer volume of this, any pics that are not cropped or converted correctly will likely not get used. Also, we will use pics as we get to them, so if someone else's goes up on an item or mob instead of yours, it is simply because we opened that e-mail first. Thanks.

I've sent in about 15 images over the last week or so. I noticed they aren't uploaded yet, just wondering how often it gets updated?

Not in any hurry or anything, just interested.

no dice, for me.

The screenshots that are created in your screenshots folder. You will need to re-save them using a photo veiwing software such as Photoshop or there are several other programs. Once you can veiw it save it as a different file type, preferably jpeg and then you can send it in.

On a personal note. I have always hated games that saved screenshots as a Bitmap or TGA file. They are way too large. I can often take 50 screenshots in a single session. Add those up over 5-7 days and at 3megs each that's a **** of alot of file space.

As a programmer, I can give you an idea of why they are bitmaps or TGAs. Basically, that allows them to just dump the screen to a file...quick and easy. To do jpeg or something else requires more setup and possibly compression, which would take up time/resouces on the computer and slow down the game. Considering that screenshots are treated as low-priority features, that's a major no-no.
I'll be sending in a bunch soon

I've sent in dozens upon dozens of pics to the DAOC section of Allakhazam. I am working on a massive collection for WoW now. Will be sending them tomorrow!
