Using GB badges
Posted by mailwalker on Sunday, May 31, 2015 4:29 PM

Can someone provide a quick description on using the GB badges. As in how do I get it to show up on my posts?

Go to your sig, you can add the badges there in the same way you add pics to a post. But the sig will only hold so much, 510 characters if I remember right. So once you have a couple of badges, will either have to put them in a rotating GIF image or place them all on one image using a photo editor.

Using Photo-Bucket, how do I get multiple badges posted. Seems like an easy simple thing, but it's driven me nuts.

Which photo editor do you recommend Bish?

Here's a good site for making GIF's, if you want to go that route.

Click on "choose file."  That will bring up a window with places on your computer where you've stored files and folders and jpegs and stuff.  There will be a little "open" command box at the bottom right of the window.

Click on the image you want, then click "open."  It will then return you to the Picasion screen, showing what you just selected, and allowing you to add more..

They have three "choose file"  buttons showing, but if you keep clicking on "add one more picture," you can go up to ten.

Once you're done adding images, click on "create animation," and the site will do the rest.  It will also ask if you want to save to your computer.  You'll want to do this so you can upload it to your photo hosting site, like Photobucket.

One suggestion, when you complete more than ten group builds.  Use the GIF you created for builds one through ten as one image:  click on that GIF so it adds the whole thing as one file when you "choose file. " Then you can add the file image for group build number eleven.

Hope I made that clear  Confused

This will avoid running into the problem Bish mentioned.

Thanks mucho CMK. I'll save this post for when the need arises. Then I'll give it a shot. It doesn't help that I'm pretty much a techno neophyte.Lol.

I use paint.net to make my larger GB badge.

Checkmate....thanks for the tip! I used it the other night and got my badges up and running. Looks better than just being able to show just two of them.
