Hiya Jake-518! Welcome to UESPWiki. It's great when we get new members. Just thought I'd send you a welcome with some helpful info. Check out the following links:
- Policies and Guidelines: UESPWiki standards and expectations
- Help Contents: a list of in-depth Help pages
- Quick Editing Guide: a quick guide to wiki markup
- Getting Started: how you can help
When you're editing, it's always a good idea to leave edit summaries to explain the changes you have made to a particular page, and remember to sign your talk page posts with four tildes ~~~~ (do not sign edits to articles). Also, the "show preview" button is a great way to view the changes you've made so far without actually saving the page (patrollers really appreciate it!).
City maps, ready!
Hey Jake-518! While your efforts to improve the wiki by adding screenshots are greatly appreciated, I am afraid that your most recent uploads do not meet our image standards. Most importantly, Interior Images (like the ones you just uploaded) should have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Yours have an aspect ratio of 16:9. The most common screen resolutions that meet the 4:3 aspect ratio are: 640×480, 800×600, 960×720, 1024×768, 1280×960, 1400×1050, 1440×1080 , 1600×1200, and 1920×1440. You can edit your images to one of these sizes with a third party editing software (GIMP comes to mind), or by changing your graphics settings in game to the appropriate resolution. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions! Nicholas Lee Dust 07:43, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
- Hey there, Nicholasleedust!
Would using the basic image editing software that comes with my laptop suffice? Or were you thinking of software more specialized? Thanks! —Jake-518
- Assuming you are talking about MS Paint, it would work I suppose, though it is certainly not ideal. With MS Paint, resizing the image significantly reduces the quality. Cropping it is possible, but has to be done manually (and getting an exact resolution is a challenge- 1600x1200 works, but 1600×1201 would not fit our guidelines). I use Photoshop, myself, but it is expensive and not worth buying just for the wiki. Many editors I have seen use paint.net, and GIMP also comes to mind. Nicholas Lee Dust 02:59, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
