  1. Sparkle, If you're running f.lux, try uninstalling it (just turning it off might not help, uninstall and reboot).
  2. OK so I whipped up some photos to make sure you understand what I'm saying. In this first object, the subject is standing on top of a bright blue prim. Later, in photoshop, I removed the prim (as well as any other features in the image that didn't belong there) leaving nothing but my avatar. Next, in Photoshop, I painted the outline of the diver all black, and then made it a bit more transparent.Now take it into Second Life and place it under your subject (and tell them to promise they will never move from that spot!
  3. OH! One more thing. If you use shadows on your builds, get used to using tints. For example, the underside of a sofa should be tinted almost black (because it's DARK under your sofa!) The more directly a prim surface faces light, the lighter the tint. Second Life will do this automatically for you (as long as you don't set it to Full Bright) but I find SL is too subtle. Tinting it yourself helps create a great illusion of depth. Hope this helps!
  4. I can't think of any tutorials off the top of my head, but I can give you a quickie step-by-step right here. Let's say you have a table in the middle of the room with a hardwood floor. In photoshop start with your hardwood floor texture. You're not going to be able to tile your floor in Second Life, so if you need to repeat a texture, do it in photoshop so that in Second Life your repeats can be set to u and v = 1. Next, on a separate layer, draw a black box where the table is going to be. Then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and blur the box until it look right. If you're trying
  5. A somewhat heavy-duty alternative that can look really nice is to paint shadows into your floor texture in photoshop (along with shadows and lighting for the room in general). You can also have them rendered using a third party 3D tool. Of course, this only applies to furniture that won't be leaving the house. :smileywink:
  6. My gut says yes, it's fine (or, no ... it's not wrong.) There are some folks who are territorial in a "git-off-mah-land" kind of way, but when you see them, just make a hasty exit and be on your way. In the olden days I used to relentlessly abuse seldom-tended land for my little building projects. This was before LL implemented better land management tools. :smileywink:
  7. Ce n'est pas exactement rock, mais je l'aime… -Aimee
  8. Great movie! Though I do wonder if the whole thing is an elaborate Banksy gag.
  9. "Honored" is nice, but I'm working towards "Gilded Gentry."
  10. Done. That seemed more complicated than it had to be (No fault of Suella, just the menu options are all over the place.) But for better or for worse, here it is.
  11. That's what I'm looking for ... :smileywink:
