Tips for posting Images
« on: December 26, 2013, 02:33:01 PM »
Note: This tip is written for Photoshop but most likely can be used with other software.

By default, images posted butt right up to the text when you use the Float Left or Right Tags. They look like this:



To make some room next to the text, open the image in your photo software (Photoshop, Gimp, etc.) and go to Canvas Size:



Next, add about 25 Pixels to the right side (for Float left) or left side (for float right):



Now, save the image as a .gif (not a .jpg):



You do NOT need to set a transparency, just save it and upload it to the E Wiki. The result is this:

You can achieve the same thing by using the floatleft/floatright tag and inserting a padding to your IMG tag - this will make a space between the image and the text. Virtually the same result, but embedded in the code. ;)

[floatleft][img padding=10]http://elliquiy.com/forums/avs/avatar_4080_1386537960.png[/img][/floatleft]
Code: [Select]
[floatleft][img padding=10]http://elliquiy.com/forums/avs/avatar_4080_1386537960.png[/img][/floatleft]
Will result in:

Sed tincidunt sapien rutrum, bibendum leo sed, eleifend ante. Morbi tellus lacus, facilisis non lectus et, luctus ultricies neque. Mauris at tortor at ipsum lobortis luctus congue quis massa.

I usually just add a few spaces between the url and float codes.
