Group Icon and Info by Rainny-Stock Group Icon and Info by Rainny-Stock
With all the new groups running around DA & new group icon contests going on, I thought I should give people a few pointers on GROUP ICONS

So here's a very quick tutorial

:bulletgreen: Unlike deviant icons (which are 50 pixels by 50 pixels) Group icons are 100 pixels wide by 50 Pixels tall

:bulletgreen: Group icons must be less than 15kb You can find out how many KB your icon is by hovering you mouse over the image on your computer & right licking, scroll down to properties & left click. This should bring up a window that provides it's file size, type, & location.

:bulletgreen: when you are ready to upload your groups new icon go to your groups main page& hover your mouse over the current icon.
The icon will become outlined. On the top right side of this outline is an image of a pencil.
Left click the pencil from there you can upload your new Group Icon.

:bulletgreen: The deviation attached to these comments is the same size of a group icon.
You may download this image to use as a template for a new group icon
There is no need to link back to this deviation but mention would be greatly appreciated. :aww:

if you still have questions on Group Icons comment below.


Comments welcome! :)

It's alright. I'm hopeful that I can end my strike soon.
Send the note anyway, at the very least I can e-mail you a file, if I can do your request.

I don't make logos & icons through this account.
Send a note to ~A-R-Allen with details about what you want as a logo & I'll see if I can do it.

How do you show the Group Icon in a comment or on your page? I don't want it to be JUST the word like: #ZeCityBelliscellisco :/

:iconrainny-stock:
Rainny-Stock Featured By Owner May 3, 2012
It works the same way as posting user icons. Type :icon & then the user of group name, then :
like this :icon Wildlife101club: (with out the space) to get this :iconwildlife101club:
Or :icon Rainny-Stock: (without the space) to get :iconrainny-stock:
"dev" gets you the name "icon" gets you the icon :)

That's odd.
Try deleting your cookies off your PC. That normally fixes that kind of problem.
If it doesn't you may wanna check the DA FAQ &or put in a help request to DA.
