Hey people,

I'm working on a mobile guide of my own but I'm kind of stuck at the mo'. I have almost all the written info I need but I'm lacking any kind of visual aid. I'd like to create some windcharts, landmarks and other stuff involving screenies and images/imaging, but I'm a big noob when it comes to that sort of thing. For example, I've no idea how to make a windchart, let alone a decent looking one. I'd also like to know how to draw vertical lines over screenies, other than doing it manually, which is going to make it look like crap and, even worse, make the image inaccurate and useless.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

How stupid do you think we are? Girls don't exist on the internet.

Back on topic: to make windcharts, just use an existing windchart and change the numbers by editing it in Photoshop. Just erase the original numbers with the eraser or place a text box over them. For the drawing straight lines, Photoshop can't automatically do it just based on the landmarks on the screenshot (i.e. it can't "see" the landmarks to place straight lines over them). However, you can easily draw your own straight lines by pressing the "Shift" key when you use the brush tool. I think you can also click anywhere with the brush, hold "Shift", and click on another point.

@ Trin: On the contrary, teh intarwaep is the place to be when it comes to finding willing, and more important, easy women. See postresses below you for proof.

@ the girls: Date, place, time, I'm there. Pictarz plz?

@hellic: I'll bring a camera when us girls meet up, we won't let you down. <3

OT: I didn't even think of photoshop as I don't have it at the moment, I'll try to get my hands on a copy (read: crack), thanks for mentioning that. About the lines, I'm perfectly able to draw lines using Paint :P, the thing is however, I'm not able to draw them 100% accurate. Say I'm using a screenie from GB, which consists of 800 pixels, and I'd want straight vertical lines at exactly 200, 400, and 600 pixels, how'd I do that? It gets a lot harder to manually divide the screenie into 20 or 30 parts, instead of 4. I'm wondering how other people made their 4, 8, 20, 30, UHA etc lines over screenshots, surely they didn't draw 30 lines by hand? I'm wondering if there's a way to make table-like things which you could just paste onto screenies. Like setting the number of columns to 30, rows to 1, adjust column height, and voila, your screenie has 28 evenly divided vertical lines across it.

Thanks for your replies. ^_^

So now you have 1/3 of the information :)

EDIT: Just saw your more recent reply. Somehow I missed it. This should do the trick though.


I'm going to aplogize in advance in case you don't have Photoshop or Microsoft office, but this is how I would do it.

To create accurate circles with divisions in them, use excel to make a pie chart. If you want 16 divisions you make a chart with 16 pieces. It's slightly harder to do the first time than it sounds, but it is the most accurate way in my opinion. After that, hit the Print Screen button and paste the screenshot into a new document in Photoshop. Crop the image so that you just have the pie chart, and you can add text labels and numbers around or inside it.

Vertical lines can be done by transferring a screenshot into Imageready and going to
View->Create Guides...
Check "vertical" and uncheck "horizontal" obviously. You can then do it by number of pixels or by number of divisions you want.

If you have uneven divisions, you can do it one line at a time in Photoshop using View->New Guide and typing a number with "px" at the end in the box, such as "132px".

After you have your fancy lines on the image, you need to actually draw them on for it to be of any use. Make a new layer for the lines. Get the pencil tool and set it to 1 or 2 pixels, and then zoom in on the first line. Click as directly on the line as you can, and then hold shift and move the mouse down. Holding shift ensures that the line will be straight, and the guide ensure that it is placed correctly. Repeat for all the divisions you want. This can be pretty tedious, but you won't be making these things every day :)

Good luck! If you have any more questions (you should ... photoshop isn't exactly intuitive if you haven't had experience with it) feel free to ask.
