Discussion in 'Gaming and Software' started by stoatman, Jun 29, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. There's some good flag designs going on - keep it up!

    Mine:

  8. For those who can't be arrsed to find out for themselves:

    You can create an image on your computer and upload it as your nation's flag.

    Your flag must be:

    1. In JPEG (.jpg) format
    2. About 107x71 pixels in size
    3. No larger than 10KB
    4. Appropriate. This means conforming to site etiquette and being suitably flag-like. Images likely to cause widespread offense (e.g. nudity, swastikas) are prohibited, and your nation may be deleted if you post them.

    Apparently more nations get deleted for wildly inappropriate flags than any other reason - good to see they've got their priorities straight.
     
  9. Done a flag, but how do i go about shrinking it to fit the required size, not very pc literate, so if anyone could help that would be great, Thanks S-D
     
  10. Open it in paint, go to Image and Stretch/Skew. Change the size from there.
     
  11. or.....

    Not a computer expert myself either but, have managed to get by with the following:

    Make a copy (in case it goes to rats)

    Open it with Microsoft Office Picture Manager (which seems to be the default programme on my computer)

    Click on Picture menu

    Click on 'Compress Pictures'

    Click on e-mail option (which tells you what size the original is, and what size the compressed version will be)

    Should get you down to about 10KB or less

    Save file


    Hope that helps

    .
     
  12. Thanks, got it sorted now.

  13. Apparently it doesn't like certain historical German emblems for some reason!

    So I knocked this one up instead;
