[Tutorial]Flickr Box


Recommended Posts

Step 1: Create a new document


First of all create a new document 500 by 500 pixels. Now we are going to be filling the background with a dark brown colour, to do this go Edit > Fill and use Color with the colour number #2C241f.




Step 2: Draw the box


Secondly, we are going to be creating the actual box that we are going to be sticking everything into. So create a new layer by going Layer > New > Layer (or Ctrl + Shift + Alt + N for the shortcut). Select the rounded rectangle tool and set the following settings.




Now click somewhere in the document around the middle so you have a outline of a rounded box. Now right click and go Make Selection.




Set your foreground colour to #483A2E and your background colour to #30271F. Now select the gradient tool and set it to linear gradient (and make sure that it is going from the foreground colour to the background colour). Left click somewhere in the top left and drag to the bottom right of the selection and release.




Now it should be looking something like this.




Step 3: Draw the header


Next up we are going to be applying an outer glow to our box. To do this we are going to be going Layer > Layer Styles > Outer Glow and fill in the settings below (the colour is #1e1815)




This is how your box should be looking now:




Step 4


Thirdly we are going to be creating a header for the box. So select the area of your box (Ctrl + Click the layer in the layers window). Select the rectangular marquee tool and while holding down the Alt key drag across from the bottom right up to the top left (leaving 30-40 pixels at the top) - this will deselect most of the selection so we are just left with the header part.




Set your foreground colour to #d0d63e and your background colour to #819026. Select the gradient tool (this time set it to radial gradient) and left click near the top left and drag to about the middle of the selection and release.




Step 5: Add a reflection


Using the move tool move the selection down about 20-30 pixels so that the top of it is in the middle of the header (hold down shift so that it does not go sideways when you are moving the selection).




Now go Edit > Fill and fill the selection with the colour white (the hex number is #ffffff). You can deselect (Ctrl + D) now because you don't need that selection anymore.




Select the area of the green header like you did before and invert the selection (this will select everything except the header - the shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + I).




Hit delete on your keyboard and you should be left with something like this.




Now set the blend mode of the white layer to Soft Light and the opacity level to 30%.




Step 6: Add a title


Using the text tool add in some text for the header of the box.




Step 7: Add the thumbnails


Lastly we are going to be adding in some Flickr images to show you what it would look like. So get some Flickr images (I've got some 75 by 75 pixel ones) and stick them with 10 pixel spaces between each other.




Now we are going to be applying a stroke to the Flickr images. So go Layer > Layer Styles > Stroke and enter the settings below (the colour is #483a2e).




Your completed box should look something like this :)

    • First of all you need to understand that there is no ultimate guide "how to", server sources has some similar things but it also has some differences that you will be hard to adapt without skills. Saying skills I mean not only java skills, the most required ones is understanding lineage 2 core processes task-scheduling and client-server networking  communication.   You need to: -learn some core information about Java language -learn some lessons about java programming to understand what is java classes, packages, imports etc. -learn how to edit java source code with some IDE (one of them eclipse) -learn how to compile java source code (with ant for example)   Then for the best way you need to get most popular sources form thread above and try to integrate that scripts like for native, I mean as I can see that mostly provided scripts are for acis, so take acis sources and ty to integrate or find something directly for mobius etc.   Doing all this you will need to understand three things First - How player communicates with server What is action bypasses (when player clicks some link in HTML) and where your server handles it (find RequestBypassToServer packet and learn how its working) What is user/voice/admin commands (when player writes some in chat with "." or "/" or "//") and where your server handles it (find VoiceCommandHandler and learn how its working)   Second - How server doing core logic If addon has some logic that not depends on direct user action it will mostly required some scheduled task (some logic that will be runs periodically), so you need to  find some ThreadPoolManager and Runnable usages and understand how its working Maybe you will need some data storage, so you will need to find how server working with database (try to find how server executes SQL requests, SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE)   Third - How server communicates back to player You need to find how server sends packets to player, find some sendPacket() method and its usages, for example Say2 packet (its when server sends some chat message to client) etc   Unfortunately there is no easy way, some sources will be easier to adapt cuz of similarity between sources some will be harder  
    • I'm starting on this. I know enough to be able to make my website with php, html and css. I also know linux to maintain a server but I don't know anything about java and its compilation.   Can anyone help me learn how to add this type of code to a server? I'm using L2jMobius, but I have no idea or concept of how to start to add codes. Do I need to add it before compiling? Can it be added once the datapack is compiled? How do I know where I should add it?   I would appreciate any kind of information, please!   I wanna to add some codes nex collection, like TvT events, etc:     See you guys and thanks for all the help are in the forum!
    • it says standard here , that is , without protection , it is made from another source code , the goal of my dll is just to kill the game guard , the hwid code is cut out there , since no one uses the old protections on projects - but your answer is clear   ps then choose another option for yourself )
    • remove  DisableGameGuard() from code at all.  compile and send here new dsetup.dll  
    • I shared my dsetup with the HWID system but I can't log in that Error. When I put yours it gave this error.
