Taking Screen Captures

Images on the Wiki are in-game screen captures taken personally, so please no original artwork AND NO images taken from other fansites or sources.

1) Find what you want to take a picture of in-game.
2) If the game icons are in the way, Press "ctrl-g" on your keyboard to make them go away!
3) Press "Print Screen" on your keyboard to take the picture. (also labeled as "PrtScn")
4) Your Pirate101 Screen will show in Blue the name of the image you just captured.
5) Find your file in the "Desktop/My Documents/Pirate101" folder and open it.
   Open up a new file in Paint or any graphics program and press "ctrl-v" to paste the image into the new file.
6) Crop your image to a decent size (see the examples below) centering the item, but not trimming too closely that edges are removed.
Please don't cut-out the images without a background, they don't look great on the wiki.
7) FILE TYPES: All static images on the Wiki are .png files, so please save your image as a .png BEFORE you try to upload it.
To convert other file types to .png format open the image in a graphics editor such as Paint, click File > Save As, and select PNG as the type.

Example Images

Wearable Gear Items - hats, accessories, outfits and boots - look best closely cropped on an unmounted pirate standing in a well-lit place with a neutral background, and having distracting items removed (face paint or weapons). Tokens, Charms, and Rings are usually captured in the inventory and vendor windows, as unselected items. Housing and ship items should be placed before taking the screenshot, if possible.

Uploading Images

Quest Dialogue Images

1) FIRST, enter the number of images to be uploaded on the Quest page.

2) Press "Edit" at the top of the page, then add the line:

| imagenum = X
(where X is how many dialogue images you want on the page)

3) Press "Save page" at the bottom of the editor window.

4) Now Upload the Images on the Quest Dialogue Tab!

Please add categories to your images when you upload them. See the Uploaded Image Categories below for names!

To categorize an image, simply add [[Category:Name of Category]] in the "Summary" box when you upload the image. (See Below Example)

For example, for Boot Images, type [[Category:Boot Images]] in the "Summary" box on the upload page.
For Quest Goal and Quest Dialogue images, the world in the [[Category:world Goal Images]] should be the same as the world shown at the bottom of the quest page.
Also, for Creature, NPC and Location images, use the world in the category name, for example, [[Category:world Creature Images]] to place the image in the appropriate sub-group.

Did you forget to add the category?

Click on the File after you upload it, "Edit" the file page from the tab at the top of the page, and type [[Category:Name of Category]] in the editor instead. Using the Summary box after uploading the image will not work.

If you still really aren't sure, ask a Wiki-Master on Central!

Manual Image Coding

If ever needed, you can manually include a file in a page by using a link in one of the following forms:

  • [[File:File.jpg]] to use the full version of the file
  • [[File:File.png|200px|thumb|left|caption]] to use a 200 pixel wide rendition in a box in the left margin with a caption
  • [[Media:File.ogg]] for directly linking to the file without displaying the file

You can also:

To view or search previously uploaded files go to the list of uploaded files, (re)uploads are also logged in the upload log, deletions in the deletion log.
