Anna Nova Posted June 13, 2020 Share Posted June 13, 2020 So people are saying that making alphas is easy. So I'd like the tutorial please! The way I do it is with GIMP and Firestorm. 1) In GIMP I open a copy of a Robin Wood UV-map of appropriate size - usually 512x512. 2) Use the eraser to wipe over some bits near where I want alpha, not taking much care. Export a png of it, but keep GIMP open. 3) In Firestorm make a new alpha in inventory, and attach it along with the item to be 'alpha-ed'. 4) Edit the alpha item and mount the exported png from (2) as a local file on the required part. 5) Edit the GIMP version, re-export. Repeat until everything perfect. 6) Upload the final png to SL paying the L$10. 7) Save the GIMP file for when you discover you made a mistake.... Now this is hardly 'Easy'. So I am wondering if I have totally lost the plot. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
