Personal templates and Lua modules[edit source]

Hi, I've moved "Template:GED/User:Sahima Badir" to User:Sahima Badir/Template:GED, and "Module:GetItemData/User:Sahima Badir" to Module:Sandbox/User:Sahima Badir. As personal templates they should be contained within your userspace (or as a subpage of Module:Sandbox for the module) - you can continue to invoke them as you normally would. Thanks, Iiii I I I 23:07, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Regarding transparency[edit source]

Hey, I just saw your recently images that you're adding transparency to, but I noticed that you might not be using anti-aliasing? Talk-to Kelsey 02:40, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Just adding on to this - first off good job with the images! Remember to autocrop your images once you remove the background so that there's no extra whitespace to the sides of the images. Also, I can still see some white outline near the hair of this image - are you using the lasso tool?

Hey, thanks for the feedback. I'm new to Wiki contributions, so my apologies for any cock-ups (go easy on me!) I noticed the left-over artefacts only after uploading the anti-aliased revision. I must admit, I'm not great with the lasso. When it came to removing the grass, I adjusted the curve of the red/green channel of the image in Lab colour, since the bright green would be represented distinctly different from the other colours and would itself act as an alpha channel. Then, when I got to the sky, and please don't crucify me for this, I shame myself, I used the Magic Wand Tool :hides:
I've fixed the visual artefact around the hair now. Is there any way to delete previous revisions so my many attempts aren't littering the file's history? Sahima Badir (talk) 04:02, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
Congratulations! You nearly have 200 edits. Keep going! I'm Firecracker, and a warm welcome to RuneScape Wiki. Feel free to ask any questions, or seek help via our lovely, friendly community! Again, welcome! Firecracker (talk) 23:47, 19 March 2019 (UTC)


Hello Sahima, your transparency work is great, though please remember to remove the {{trans}} from the image summary after you upload your transparent version :) Merds msg 22:50, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Translucency[edit source]

Hi there, just wanted to say thanks for all the work you're doing on images :D I noticed that you had done this image File:Blight afflicted core.png - I have no idea how you've managed to remove the background so well but I wanted to point out that we have a whole category of "translucent" images like this where we are really stuck on how to remove the backgrounds (at Category:Images needing translucency). If whatever method you're using can be applied on any of those images it would be very helpful! and we'd still count it as work on the transparency goal for the One Small Wiki Favour projects :D Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 08:45, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey, no problem. I've been quite enjoying this; it's therapeutic ๐Ÿ˜„ I've had that category open in a tab the last few days and I've been poking my head in from time to time, but that's the first image I've had reasonable success with. I did have a go at File:Druid (echo, prestige 2).png, assuming that the yellow on blue could prove useful in extracting the alpha values, but it turned out to be more complicated than I'd hoped.

The plan was to finish the fifty transparent images for the One Small Wiki Favour, then move on to tackling the images needing translucency. Given the technique I've been using for the transparency is especially useful in removing contrasting backgrounds like in the screenshots taken in the PoH with the bright green background (For example), would it still be preferable to start on the translucency and leave the transparency to other users?

On another note, I've been playing around with programming Photoshop plugins and I have a few ideas for ones to facilitate adding translucency to images. If I get anywhere with it, I'll be sure to share it ๐Ÿ™‚ Sahima Badir (talk) 09:42, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello, please share your secrets ๐Ÿ‘€ Thanks. Merds msg 12:29, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Sure, I'll write up a tutorial when I next get the chance. I can't promise it'll be coherent, or even useful, but maybe someone will be able to take something away from it ๐Ÿ˜„ Sahima Badir (talk) 13:54, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Ok so, actually teach me, I'm jealous. Merds msg 18:07, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
Brรถder is there any video that roughly explains what u say in ur guide? I'm struggling to comprehend the guide in its full extent :( My colors are always slightly off :c Merds msg 23:21, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Hey Merds, I'm afraid there's no video, at least none that I'm aware of; I've just sort of been winging it so far ๐Ÿ˜› That said, the guide I'm working on is far from complete. The theory section is pretty much done, but still needs images, and I still have to write up a walkthrough of a few examples in the later sections, plus completely rewrite the Creating the layers section. When it's near-finished, I'll give you a shout and you can point out all the bits that make no sense ๐Ÿ˜„
As for the File:Augmented_staff_of_limitless_torment_and_sadism_detail.png, you did a pretty good job considering how difficult it is. I struggled a lot with that one myself, hence why I only did the other image on that page and not this one. I'd recommend trying on something a little easier, something with alpha values or colour values that are a little easier to predict. Anything like this where you'd typically be able to recreate it using the method outlined on the wiki's guide for adding translucency. Once you get your bearings on images with simple backgrounds, alpha values, and foreground values (purple in the case of the blossom lantern), you should be able to move on to more complicated images. In the meantime, if it helps, here are my layers and layer masks for that image. https://imgur.com/a/COg7OyP
Alpha was used in the calculation of foreground, and was then applied to foreground as its mask.
Background is simply the areas of the image behind the translucency.
Foreground is the colour of the fire and the spizzly thing; notice the smudges - I had to play around with the colours of this quite a bit, since the alpha channel wasn't the easiest thing to recreate.
Staff mask was applied as the mask of the original image to get the cut-out, in the same way as images needing transparency. Sahima Badir (talk) 13:55, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Tysm, I got through the 1st, 2nd and 4th images after watching some video, but as I didnt quite understand the 3rd It looked weird (the image I uploaded was done through a different process after i gave up but I'll try again with some other now :). Merds msg 14:04, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, the third image was the spanner in the works. When I set up my layers to calculate that, it differed significantly from what you see up there. You will have to play around with it slightly. In the case of File:Buzz.png, I actually ended up having to redo the entire thing from scratch, meaning it was entirely pointless using my method ๐Ÿ˜† Just remember that what you end up with will look a little weird most of the time, but it should always be reasonably easy to clean up. Sahima Badir (talk) 14:24, 3 April 2019 (UTC)


So I've updated the guide with a rough draft of a walkthrough. I've left File:Augmented_imperium_core_equipped.png in case you wanted to have a go on that one, since it's pretty much the same as the image in the guide ๐Ÿ™‚ Sahima Badir (talk) 17:39, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Regarding detailed images transparency[edit source]

Hey, just saw your translucency on the augmented noxious bow and thought I'd mention that the player should be removed also :P just the item should be left for a detailed item image. That said, your recent transparency and translucency work has been on point, I'm loving it. Talk-to Kelsey 12:19, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey, I was actually just in the process of removing the person. I spent a while cleaning up the transparency around the player, only to see that the page was about the bow. Serves me right for not paying attention I suppose ๐Ÿ˜„ Sahima Badir (talk) 12:22, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
