    And another webpage is using the SkinCity-Pics :mad: .
    It´s seems like a new sport.

    Example-Page

    UT2003.de

    Edit : And the downloadlinks are from one BU-Mirror .
    Mail is on the way.It seems to be a professional page (they have lots of domains for different themes).Let´s see what they answer.

    Use a Watermark, over some image that would be hard to re-adjust (Not a white area).

    I'd also see if they where also using the BU ftp for download aswell.

    What Program do you use to create/rearrange your screen shot images?
    I bet will be able to do it (It looks like you use layers to create your screen shots), if so then just use a skin city logo & layer it over adjusting the opacity (Actually vbery easy). :)

    Thanx Mick.

    I can help you here as I'm a PSP Fanboy. :D

    See what you think of this idea/screen shot (I have attatched the Watermark within this post) if you like it then I'll go to the next step on how to use it. :)

    It´s great . Let´s go to the next step.
    I asked SabbathCat to create a new infobox(the ugly thing in the left corner ;) ) for me with a SkinCity-Logo.

    I really like your idea,so I want it on the pics :D and a new box , too .

    OK, no problem.
    Btw, let me know if the Watermark is to big for you?

    Here we go....
    Please note that anything in Red is from the tool bars is PSP6.

    Once you have created your screen shot:

    1. Open the "Watermark.psp" image & go to Edit & then Copy, then open up the screen shot what you would like to place the watermark on and select Edit> Paste> As new layer.

    2. Place the Watermark by moving it with your cursor to where ever you want it (Better over a darker area).

    3. Adjust the Layer palette/Tool (Looks like a Red & Blue square overlapped) so that the Watermark is set to aroud 60% Opacity & that the blend mode is set on Luminance.


    Hope that helps. if not shout some more ok? :)

    Not just lazy and plagiarising, but using your bandwidth too. On the other hand, this has the nice side effect that you get to choose what's displayed on their website :D

    If they aren't extremely nice to you in the near future, I'd be inclined to copy the image to a different filename, edit the HTML page on Skincity to point to the new copy, and replace the old one, perhaps with an image of some appropriate text.

    Attached a faked screenshot to demonstrate what I mean :)

    Haha psychic, that's a good one :)

    I do hope though that the webmasters are reasonable and just remove the images as they were asked.
