Writing text onto your pics

Recommended Posts

Hi, can someone tell me how do you put some text onto your profile pics.  I see people who do this and have no idea how its done. Do you need some kind of special editing tool for it.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Darcy.

You need to open your pic in a program you can edit images with.

If you have the pic you want to put text into only in your inventory´s photo album, you need to download it onto your pc first, download it either as .png or jpg best.

Open the image edit program, e.g. the one Freya suggested, and from that open the pic, find the option to put text in your image.

Or you can even just do it in your browser, on sites like this one: http://picfont.com/

When you´re done, upload the edited pic with your text on it to SL, you do that in the Build-menu, with Upload Texture, you´ll find it not in your foto album folder but in the texture folder then but can use it just like your fotos for your profile.

 

 

(If you want to do more, but need to invest more time then too, GIMP is a nice free program with a lot of functions comparable to photoshop if you play around with it some time you can do all sorts of things with your pics. You´ll find plenty tutorials on how to do things in GIMP, e.g. this one on youtube for putting text in images:

Have fun.

Easiest way I have found is to save the pic onto your computer then edit it in a photo editer like ms paint or photoshop then upload to sl. Your going to be spending the 10L anyway..
