I dunno it must be a matter of taste, I do often look at my translucent cover and god knows how sexy it is, you can even read the interior mantra, “yours to open”… Maybe its just me but I find the sight very sexy:)
I love that! Can you please provide that as a pdf in correct dimensions for everybody to print out. Or how about a generator, where you are able to create you very own text, logo, whatever.
That would be awesome.
Sorry, I needed some time for this quick tutorial. @ElKrasso
I guess to get this done the tools I have used are more or less standard on any computer or surely it can be done with alternative programs. At last it´s rather a matter of individual choice.
Yes, but not sole.
This time I’ve used:
Irvanview (for cropping)
M$-Paint (composing, color picking/color change)
LibreOffice (Linux version)
Wine (to have M$-Paint running under Linux (windows/system32/mspaint.exe)(Gimp is fine, but I don’t know it too well yet)
Screenshot function (standard Linux function a bit more functional than M$ XP/7)
The main time consuming problem for me was finding the matching FP font.
I could not find it in Openoffice (XP), don’t have M$-Office. I run Libreoffice only on Linux. There I had to check >60+ fonts to find one called “URW Gothic L”.
Maybe FP uses one named differently from M$-Office, but mine also keeps all equal characters. Specifically these:
The thing is, to copy a character from this forum to paste it into the writer did not help me this time as the writer’s font substitution replaced it with the available fonts using more common characters. I had to do the entire job on Linux.
The battery image I saved from here.
I guess there is no further problem as it is used in relation to the product and this Forum.
I cleaned the original “mantra” with the color picker from M$Paint
Now you have a blank, gray battery image which you can select, copy
and paste into your preferred writer (offering the original FP font
Place a text box arranged in front of the battery image (which is arranged in the background, to create your individual battery mantra
I could provide you with my document template, but if the font is not available in your writer the result would be different. Unfortunately I am not allowed to upload writer files and don’t want to fake the suffix.
So only an image.
