Community Rules

This comm is open to anyone to post codes, layouts, resources, tutorials, and requests for help and content. Of course, we do have some rules, so please read through them before jumping in; thank you!

Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. This is not a drama comm, and we expect you guys to be awesome and stay civil. If a situation gets out of hand, please contact a mod, and leave comments intact so we can accurately handle the situation.

Please tag your posts and check out the tagging guide if you have any questions!

■ Very long posts or posts formatted with your own div styling for organization should be behind a cut to save people's f-lists.

Work safe above the cut, please!

■ If posting codes, guides, etc. absolutely do not post content that you did not make. That's stealing, and it's super uncool, bro! If you are posting expanded/edited codes made by yourself using another user's coding as well, please be sure you have their permission (You do not need direct permission if they allow edits to be re-posted in their blanket rules.)
■ Do not post tutorials/links to tutorials that show people how to steal codes from other users. Again: Stealing. Not cool.
When asking for help with something, please check the help tags (help: coding, help: graphics, help: icons, help: layouts, help: other) first to see if your question has already been posted and answered to avoid duplicates.

We do not allow game ads to be posted on this comm since there are so many communities specifically for that already; if you're pimping a game as an addition to a regular post, that's fine. (OK: You post an RP code and mention in the post, oh hey, also I'm running this game! NOT OK: Posts dedicated to game promo.)

We do allow other types of community promos if they are related to RP (icon comms, other types of resource comms, etc.) Just shoot us a comment in our dropbox beforehand and we'll let you know if it's cool to post!

question for you all

All righty. I've noticed that requests aren't as much of a thing on IJ that they used to be, less because people aren't making as many icons and more because the journals that used to are mostly purged, deleted or abandoned. (Boo.) So I'm kind of testing the waters on this idea, and if I get interest, then I'll set something up.

I tend to make icons and gifs for myself, my fiance or my friends. I don't have all the free time in the world, and both gifs and icons do take time to make, especially the gifs.

Would anyone actually pay for icons and gifs? I'm specifically thinking of icons from lesser-known actors, or actors in less iconned roles, and of gifs that are too long, too big or too high quality for tumblr to handle (since as far as I know, most people pop over to tumblr for their gif hunts). I make about half of the [info]supersuits icons (here is my tag) and I also make the gifs that crop up in the community sometimes. I also do some character photoshopping (also as seen here, with some of [info]buckybear's bases used with permission, and here).

I'd probably follow [info]tessisamess's model of using PayPal (though my rates will be nowhere near hers, because she's a blow-your-mind professional making layouts, and icons are... noooot that) and charge between $5 and $20, depending on what's being made, how difficult the source material is to find, whether I'm working with caps given to me or take them myself, whether I'm being asked to buy the source material myself or I'm sent a file, how many icons come out of it, how many gifs happen, etc. The real question is really if this is something people would actually pay for if it's done by request. I've also made gifs and icons from Dragon Age: Inquisition and would be willing to make character icons or take in-game footage of other people's custom Inquisitors by request. Or really, of any game I actually own, my game library is just small right now.

If your answer is "uh, no?", that's totally okay. I'll still keep making my own stuff (which I'm clearly very content to be doing!) and just won't do requests.

I have fruitlessly tried to figure out on my own how to create animated gif icons for IJ. I've tried adjusting the color index, removing frames, optimizing, etc. and still the file sizes are too large. I've noticed, too, while using GIMP, that a gif icon that's originally 132kb imports at closer to 550kb.

SO HERE IS MY REQUEST and also my cry for help. For all of you icon makers or those of you with experience in making animated gif icons for IJ, I would love, love, love to see a tutorial on how to do this. What are some tips and tricks? What do you do from start to finish? Are PS and GIMP the best tools for this? Would you suggest other programs/web tools? Basically, I just really want to see a tutorial that's comprehensive and allows me to use it to not only diagnose what the problem with my attempts is but also know from start to finish how to create a final product without first trying to pull my hair out. Nothing else I have googled has been tailored to IJ and the tutorials on tumblr are unhelpful as they are not limited to 100kb for the final file size.

Thanks in advance!!

While I'm still trying to get to grips with the copy of Photoshop I've had for less than a week, can anyone point me in the direction of anywhere I can find or ask for manips? I'm specifically looking for crossover ones featuring characters from Buffy/Angel, Supernatural and the Vampire Diaries.
