RE: Speedy Deletion
I just woke up, so you really lucked out. :P WWTDD? 13:49, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
- yes, I use gimp to make image backgrounds transparent.

To add transparency using GIMP do this from the main menu, select:
Layer > Transparency > Add Alpha Channel
That is what it is under the English language version 2.6.3 it might vary with other versions, but essentially the concept is the same, which is to add an alpha channel (which is a fancy way of say transparency layer). After the alpha channel is in place just select the stuff that shouldn't be there and Cut (Ctrl-X) it out. It helps to have your selector Tool Settings set without antialiasing as this gives a clean cut when you go to cut out the background. If you are working with an anti-aliased image it can be helpful to have the antialiasing turned on, however that usually ends up making the file larger than it should be just to get the edges the way you see them. This is why for images that are going to have the backgrounds removed (transparent) you should captured them without antialiasing as it gives clean lines (pixels) between the foreground object and the background junk that is to be removed.
For the wiki, it's good to index the image's colours as this makes the files smaller and generally is unnoticeable. Again from the menu, select:
Image > Mode > Indexed...
this will reduce the number of bytes used per pixel from 4 to 1, which (due to compression thingies in the PNG format) almost always make the file way smaller than just especially when you set the Color dithering to None (dial-up users will thank you).

- Seriously? Cool, erm, Ok! I'll go read the terms then, I think I know where they are, like some sort of special page or something, I'll find it. Maybe they could accept me. Thanks! 15:30, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Editing user pages
- Thanks for the heads up about editing user pages, but I know. I edit my own userpage without logging in. I'm just too lazy to. If you check the history on it you can see that both my account and my IP have made many edits, none of which have been conflicted. So just so you know, I also am AJS1992 184.108.40.206 16:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
- Yes for some reason the cookies don't work and make me stay logged in. Very annoying, but I edited my user page to show that I also edit it as my IP. 16:23, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
