I am still having issues - I have tried a couple of times to make this work. With needing the black background for all images, but also needing to be surrounded by the combine frame - I can' get the picture to show an all black background.
The template on the art link has a white background - wouldn't it be easier to post a template with a black background? Then, you can put you picture in without having to work on the white outlines in the frame.
Any thoughts on how to make this work for me, would be greatly appreciated.
THe images in the art forum should be transparent - if you are getting white background likely you are either copy/pasting or your art software is not so great.
If you are using GIMP/photoshop, then save the border image. THen, when you make the image, you have 3 layers, one for the pure black background, one for your NPC image with the background it naturally comes with deleted, and the top layer with the border.
If you are using something like Paint, either get GIMP or Photoshop and do as above, or get someone else to do it for you.
