I have made some icons! I'm very proud
I am sure that most people here are way beyond me in terms of technical ability but I thought I would post how I did it. I would have been interested to know how to do it and maybe someone who shares my lack of computer related ability is also interested.
I also apologize for the apparent immaturity of the ones I made, but I have to admit to being very interested in the ability to mark my charts
with the location of bikini girls and warnings of no alcohol areas.....
Anyway, I got some suitable pictures from Google Images
, opened them with paint
.net and cropped them. Then I re-sized them to about 40pixels high, (for some reason this next bit was important) I saved them as .png. If you dont do that they wont retain the oval shape. Then I opened them with GIMP and saved them as .xpm, and put them in the folder 'usericons'.
Ta da! Open OCPN and feel like a legend, hours of fun!
I am sure I saw someone write a comment about not posting
unoriginal material so I haven't uploaded them. If anyone wanted the ones I have made I would be happy to let them have copies as long as it isn't against the rules of the community here.
In a token gesture of maturity I made a sensible one too.....
