Gifts ... Yesssssss!!.

The wiki needs images. I'm declaring an Image Creation Party for the month of August 2019. The theme is "Where is the love for the others?" . (We all have someone else in our runtime but Victoria 4 is included as well.)

Here's how it works:

  1. Create an image for any page associated with any one of the figures that doesn't yet have one (or for any other page that doesn't have an image).
  2. Upload the image that you created to the wiki.
  3. Add the image's name to the freebie's information box - where it says | image = , add the file name (without the "File:" prefix) after the equals sign.
  4. Optionally: Come back to this page and list the freebie's page in the "Entries" section below. All images uploaded between 20 July 2019 and 31 August 2019 qualify for the party, even if they aren't listed here!

I promised gifts: On September 1, I'll pick two three uploads at random, and whoever created and uploaded those images gets a $US50 DAZ gift card (one only) or a $US25 gift certificate/card/voucher at the uploader's choice of Renderosity, DAZ3D, or Fantasies Realm (the other two).

The random factor for this choice will be supplied by RANDOM.ORG. This is not a contest.

Copied from the "Page Needing Image" category:

Please remember the guidelines we have in place so we don't end up in court:
  • Make a new image; don't steal the official one or anyone else's work. (There's no problem with you re-using your own work, of course, but remember this wiki offers its content with a CC-BY/SA license by default. Also, if the resource creator gives permission to re-use an image, it's okay to re-use it as long as you link back to that permission on the image file page; see File:Lehair.jpg for an example of how to do this.)
  • No nudity.
  • No sexualization of minors.

For this party, please do not copy the official image even if it's permitted. This party is for new images.


I'll add answers as I get questions.

How big should the image be?
I usually make images 500 pixels wide and as tall as they need to be. (A render of a full-body stocking will probably be taller than a render of a pair of earrings, so there's no limit on an image's height.) The information box will scale the image to 250 pixels wide, but the larger image shows more detail. The maximum, if I recall correctly, is somewhere near 2000 pixels wide.
What format should I use?
We use both PNG and JPG - either is good. If you want to show an animation (for example, a dynamic wardrobe item moving to match an animated pose), GIF is the only option.
Can I use a morphed V4?
Sure, why not? Young or old; fat or thin; tall or short; black, white, olive, swarthy, or some other skin colour; human or not - I think diversity is a good thing. (Also, if the freebie is a morph, you'll have to morph her to show off the freebie.)
Am I surrendering copyright to my image by posting it here?
No, unless you choose to put your image into the public domain. But you are agreeing to license our use of the image.
Do I have to make an image for just these figures?
No, you don't need to stick to the theme. If you want to make images of props that is okay too.
Should I watermark my images?
That's up to you. If you want to describe your image without putting a watermark on it, you can add a caption to the image instead - the default information box has a "caption" field immediately under the "image" field.

NEW - July 27

I forgot to mention something! Should I re-upload the image?
No, just edit the File's page the way you would edit a description page, and add in what you forgot.

A Note from Rob[edit]

I apologize for not taking a larger role in the party this year. Some sad things happened in my life this month... but you don't want to hear about those.

I also want to thank everybody who has taken part in the party. Here's hoping that the final two weeks will be as fun for everybody (other than me) as the first four were!

As I post this, there is five-and-a-half hours to go and over 800 images on the list. I hope everybody's chosen which shop they might want a gift card/certificate from! --Robkelk (talk) 18:34, 31 August 2019 (UTC)


List the freebie's pages here, please. I can find the uploaders' names from the upload logs, and I'll add your name if you don't mention it.

The random numbers have been generated![edit]

Thank you everyone for taking part in this year's Image Creation Party. Thanks to all of you, we now have 810 more images than we did in mid-July. (At this rate, will have images on all the pages in ... 20 years or so, at which point we'll have more pages. So, yes, we'll do this again in 2020.)

I promised some gifts. The random draws, in order:

#398: Hanni V4.jpg, by GafftheHorse
#460: DesirHair.png, by Kerya
#224: G2FTwoTieredDress.jpg, by Mollytabby

GafftheHorse gets to choose first - the $50 gift card at DAZ3D or a $25 gift certificate at one of the other stores. Kerya gets second choice, and Mollytabby gets the third of the three gifts.
