Guidelines for Images (Guides and Databases)
- Adobe Photoshop CS2 (or higher) or GIMP is required. Please DO NOT use MS Paint!
- Images should be taken in-game by yourself. Due to copyrights we are not allowed to use image from other sites. (Note: This includes images from the Jagex Knowledge Base.)
- Images should be taken using the Old School preset with the Action Bar minimized.
- All graphics options should be set to their maximum settings. Exceptions to this are Anti-aliasing with 4x being preferred, but not required if your computer cannot run it. However, it must be turned off completely for images to be made transparent. Bloom is also preferred, but is not required and lighting detail may be set to low if you are in a dark area.
- Images for the site are saved in PNG-8 format, whether transparent or not. The GIF format may be used for animated images for guides, if needed.
- Images for the Persons, Items, or Monsters Database should have transparent backgrounds with a 1 pixel border. This means that there is an empty space that is 1 pixel wide from the furthest edge of the image including shadows on all four sides. (See below on how to make the background transparent.)
- Proofshot images do NOT need to be in a specific format as long as we can read the information, so that we can check that the Person, Item, and Monster Names and examines have the correct spelling and punctuation.
- Images for guides should not contain extraneous content. (example: taking a picture with other members in the background or private chat on.) They should also be cropped to the size of the playing window, with no borders.
- Please do not take images saved in other formats and resave them in PNG-8 format. Once an image has been saved as a certain format, there can a loss of quality if it is resaved in another format.
- Images submitted should be posted and not attached as thumbnails, linked to your gallery, or contain embedded links.

Unable to make transparent images?:
- Crop your images to only have a 1 pixel border around them.
- Fill in the background with a bright color. (see below for an example)
- Save them as PNG-8 format quality.
- Post them in your topic and note that you need help with making the image transparent.
