Could we please get a forum for tutorials and guides? With the back log on tickets, I don't foresee author pages happening soon and it might ease down a little on the help requests. Please? With um.. stuff on it? :D
Edit: Submitted a (partial) guide. I haven't quite finished it yet, but I want to see how the forum works. :)
Hi and congratulation on the guide! I'm looking forward to see how to save TGA files in Photoshop with custom Alpha channel as I've been unable to accomplish this...
Just a bit of nitpicking:
BLP files are not TGA files ;)
- simply: BLP files in WoW are Blizzard's version of DDS files
- detailed: BLP files are Blizzard's image files containing either indexed (palette based) images or compressed images using DXT or JPEG algorithm. Each file can contain Mipmaps down to 1x1. JPEG compression is not used in WoW
XnView (at least for me) doesn't support all BLP formats :(
Xin, do you think it would be OK for guide authors to create a project page? For example, in my case, I'd like to be able to have them translated, etc, and I could then provide a zip for each localization via tags. Then I could store relevant images directly in that project's image section.
