How can I create an image like this?

Recommended Posts

I have been using PDN for a while now, and am absolutely amazed at what it is capable of (In the right hands...). I have read through a lot of the tutorials, and they have been tremendously helpful, but I haven't found one that has answered this questions, so I wanted to ask.

I really like the look of these graphics Microsoft made, and was wondering if or how I would make something similar in PDN. I would really appreciate some help, as I think they are VERY nice.

I'm sorry for the LARGE images, but I didn't know how I could resize them...

Thank you very much,

Hello and thank you very much for your responses. I will try that Aurora Tutorial today if I have time. I downloaded the Chaoscope application, and wow is that complicated... I'm going to have to spend some quality time reading up on it. Hopefully there are some good tutorials on their site (There are some GREAT examples of what it can do...).

I thought maybe this could be done in Paint.Net, but I will try my hand at Chaoscope. Paint.Net should get together with the folks at Chaoscope to integrate it into PDN for a future release... That would be cool.

I tried to resize the image, but they're links from Microsoft's site, so I can't see a way to resize them in the forums. I didn't upload them or anything, as they're kind of Microsoft's property and I wasn't sure if that would be O.K...

Thanks Again.

To resize the images, just put th before the images file extention. Exaample: http://www.thesitethatyourimageishotedo ... mageth.jpg

Hope that makes sense. :)


Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

You can always post your image as a thumbnail instead. Try putting a th_ in front of the image name, this is what I did within your quote. For example...

(examples show parentheses () where brackets [] should go.)

Instead of: (img)http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o234/germanoma/gun008.png(/img)

Try: (img)http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o234/germanoma/th_gun008.png(/img)

Also, if you want the thumbnail picture clickable to show the full resolution you can try: (url=http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o234/germanoma/gun008.png)(img)http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o234/germanoma/th_gun008.png(/img)(/url)

And that will give you this:


If you click this picture it will open another window that will be the full size picture.

Hope this helps. :D

Lol this should do the trick!
