Making your own stat cards?

Postby Lord Cohliani » Thu Oct 23, 2008 5:07 pm

How do you make your own stat cards? I don't have the funds to pay $800 for photo-shop(What a rip-off!), and MS Paint is useless for this type of stuff. So how do I go about making my own stat cards? What do you guys do?

1-You get a pirated Photoshop
2-You get Gimp 2, which is free
3-You do nothing and you BrikWar instead of making stat cards.

crayons... they work wonders.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

You can actually do some decent image editing in MS Word, although it won't be up to pro standards. Here's how it works:

1. take the blank stat template, copy and paste it into MS Word. Square it (go to the Picture toolbar, click on the icon of the little picture with the dog, and scroll down the options menu to "square").
2. take a picture of whatever you want to put on the card. Upload it, copy into Word, square it, reduce it to a size where it will fit on the card, and just superimpose it on the card.
3. fill in the text areas on the card by making text boxes.
4. Save and print.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

You can try Paint.net (http://www.getpaint.net/). Its free and supports layers. Works very closely to Photoshop.

...Probably the OP hasn't checked the forum since the 2nd day he registered and logged in for the last time.

But it can help somebody else.
