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! :)
