Any tips are highly appreciated : 1G585f6UH4jErfmwHF8BiGiAZ54APnejUT

Hello everyone I am good in BBcodes and have seen people paying quite heavy for some signatures and I thought why not teach everyone how it's made and it would be good that more people will be able to do it and rather more distributed earnings for all.

I am creating this just for signatures and not going into all the attributes used.

First of all learn how it works, there are some parts and each step will take you to a higher learning. I have tried to keep it very simple but don't hesitate to ask me anything as first time we all learn something.

- How to make use the following stylings : Bold, size, change font, colour, background color

Typing anything you want and use the attributes given .. like if you want to make "bilochoa" with the styles given below

bold - simply use
Code:
[b][/b]

example :
Code:
[b]bilochoa[/b]


size - Just use
Code:
[size=10pt][/size]
you can define the size limit by the value as you can see it's 10pt you can make it anything like 15,16,etc

example :
Code:
[size=12pt]bilochoa[/size]


color of font - you can use
Code:
[color=pink][/color]
and define the colour or even use hexcode ( must have # before the code )

example :
Code:
[color=pink]bilochoa[/color]


NOTE : You can and have to use transparent color too at times.

change font - use the following
Code:
[font=Verdana][/font]
and you can define the font you want to use.

example :
Code:
[font=calibri]bilochoa[/font]


background color - Put the text between
Code:
[glow=red,2,300][/glow]
and define the colour.

example :
Code:
[glow=red,2,300]bilochoa[/glow]


links - use
Code:
[url][/url]
but make sure all the content in between, make sure you always cover all the opened tags and closed ones too you used to design the text.

example :
Code:
[url][size=12pt][color=red]bilochoa[/color][/size][/url]


Let's quickly use them all to make sure we are going in the right direction.

Code:
[size=20pt][color=pink][glow=red,2,300][b]bilochoa[/b][/glow][/color][/size]

NOTE : Important : You must use [size] outside the [glow] tag because if you use it inside it will not work properly.


- How to make use the following stylings : alignment and tables

If you want to align something use the tag as follows :
Code:
[left][/left]
or
Code:
[right][/right]
or
Code:
[center][/center]
as per your need.

Make sure you always use it outside of all the tags to make sure it works the best.

like
Code:
[center][tag1][glow...][/glow][/tag1][/center]


Now coming to the tables it's a very important and exciting thing to be done in signatures


Any table you make must start with
Code:
[table]
and end with
Code:
[/table]

How to make a table

- Define
Code:
[table]
and close it
Code:
[/table]
and now we are gonna work between these two tages to make rows and columns

Remember one thing always columns means horizontal like | column 1 | column 2 | | column 3 |

while rows means vertical like      |
                                                 |
                                                 |
                                                 |

I am using it like that so you can understand.

Now first of all let's make a simple table which would means that we put large text to the left and right side will have two lines

Hello
This is text 1
This is text 2

here is the exact code for the table above

Code:
[table]
[tr]
[td]
[size=20pt]Hello[/size]
[/td]
[td]
This is text 1
This is text 2
[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

Here you see we have made 1 row which means and 2 columns and the first column I made the text bigger so it looks good.

Code:
[tr]
defines rows and
Code:
[td]
defines columns.

Here what we did was we made 1 row and 2 columns ... in that one column is for Hello and one with 2 sentences


- How to make images as BBcodes

Since forum does not allow direct images therefore we have to add tiny particles together and make the images.

This can be done by two ways

- Manual : Draw with little elements in notepad and use it.

- Automatic ( recommended ) : visit here : https://manytools.org/hacker-tools/convert-image-to-ansi-art/go

and just upload your image ( make sure it has while background else it won't work )

or use this https://morgh.us/pixelate/ ( transparent/white/any colour background will work in this )

Please ask me anything you want and I will gladly help as you want, here or privately.

Hello,

Thanks bilochoa for sharing your lessons,
such generators as https://morgh.us/pixelate/ will not give you good results :-)

Thing is, those generators like: https://morgh.us/pixelate or http://my.asciiart.club, https://manytools.org/hacker-tools/convert-image-to-ansi-art/go will not generate a good looking BBCode image which will works and looks well on the Forums (Signature Space).Smiley

I was trying to use such generators many times.
Every time with a failure. OP say "people paying quite heavy for some signatures".

I spend literally one (rare), two or more working days on a set of signatures with 3-4 years experience.
It takes a lot of time to create good signatures.

I already was in a situation where people are asking me for help because they wasted money to pay someone who just generated a signature which wasn't even working here on the Forums.


Personally I would advise you to consider using such generators as recommended by the OP and the actual processing of what it generates in order to make it works on the Forums IMO takes more time than creating a hand made signature pixels by pixel. Just like I do.

If you want to know more about BBCodes you might also want to visit my thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1727100.0


PS. bilochoa why you didn't posted any examples of working, generated signatures which looks stunning? :-)
Please post some of your designs.


Best wishes.

WOW!! thank you very much for sharing that tutorial here.
But, after I try to upload the image there with the correct size then the resulting result is good, but I'm sure it would be difficult to edit it again because the characters produced there are very many. Honestly first time when I want to start designing the signature I learned by paying attention to the signature that is in the signature campaign in this forum and after I edit the bbcode I never got perfect results, and I can not imagine to edit the characters contained there, it's will be very difficult. But now I already understand to make a signature using BBcode and it's better done alone than we just edit someone else's work or the result of a convert. Believe me, learning to be better that means a lot to our lives. Smiley

I am sorry you took it personal and those generators can be used to make anything. I don't have any orders in my hand else I would do and show you that how effective these are. I apologize if you felt bad, but teaching others something is actually good. Some people are having to faucet whole day for pennies so I thought maybe this helps them.

Nice and good @bilochoa. If i hadn't already learnt all these things (thanks to @roslinpl for the tutorials) then i'm sure i would have learnt a lot of things out of your thread. It is a good start for those who haven't yet tried designing signatures at all (i'm not one of them anymore, good for me, lol).
But, as said by @roslinpl already, the site (for generating ansi code from images) does not actually work for signatures. I have also tried them, and the outcome was not really convincing. I thought maybe it will generate the characters in a good way which i may be able to fit in a signtures, but turned out, it generates the characters but when you try to make it look better, it either gets too large (sometimes even more than 4000 letters, which is maximum allowed for a signature here) or looks totally different when you try to lessen the characters. So, the only option i see also, is to draw them manually, and to keep checking whether your image is not taking too much space as we need to stay in a limit while making designs. If there were no limits, i guess every beginner would have been an expert soon in this field. But it needs experience, and knowledge about each and every thing. Even the smallest things can ruin your design and the smallest things can make it look way better as well.
Good luck with your tutorials anyway, and keep sharing good information.
Regards.

That is exactly true. everything you said is right on point. I've spent many many hours here mastering the Signature art. It can be frustrating at times. What you said about the smallest things ruining your design....... That is not an exaggeration. Then finding out why it all the sudden isn't working right or why it looks perfect on your PC but your circle looks a fighter jet or a popped football on an iPhone.  There are small tricks of the trade seemingly specific to this forum. So unless you have many frustrated hours creating signatures here at BitcoinTalk, Even a BBcode expert will find a challenge in creating a full set of nice looking sigs. I'm on my companies profile now but I've been active on roslin's thread for a while.

I am here just to clear doubts. With all the due respect for roslinp and others give me anything you guys feel and I will draw it with those generators, give me Smiley

I am among those who believe that if a software can save your time why even work hard, it's like you have calculator and you solve long calculations manually which though is not wrong (actually good) but isn't effective.

I haven't made this guide to disrespect any designer and I know how hard they work but if others learn there is nothing wrong either, is it ?

You don't have to be sorry. I don't feel bad at all because all designers around Forums know those generators from years.
They are not new Smiley

And we know how hard is to use them in order to get any good results Wink

So all I want is to warn people before they use those generators.

Please make a nice signature using those generators and then recommend them ;-)

ps. I know that you feel like you hit the jackpot ;-) but you are not the 1st person who post links to generators Wink
Same generators were 'recommended' in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 ;-)
And somehow still people don't use them frequently to make sigs ;-)

I know what you want to do here ;-)
I don't mind you learning people how to make BBCode sigs but please - post some examples of nice, unique, working generated signatures ;-)
It's easy to talk about it when you don't really have to use it in a professional way ;-) If you 'recommend' something you should at least post some good examples ;-)


Good luck with those generators and I think they can help when you are a newbie.
But professional BBCode Sigs Designers will probably agree with me that those generators are just a waste of time ;-)

Anyway ;-) All best.
Thanks Wink


I knew most of the codes given in the op already but converting images to bbcode was something I was looking for long, thanks for letting us know about the tools that exist there for us to get help of. Quite useful thread op.

I suggest to learn how to use Google.

Open google.com search engine then search for: 'ASCII Image Converter / Generators'.
That's only an example how to find 'Image to ASCII' converters ;-)

Amazing and you can play with size too Wink

Yeah amazing. Now try to put it into a signature ;-) and make it works, add all links, add text, make it not stretched, don't shrink it. 1:1 with original 'logo'. Make it looks sharp and visible and follow Forum rules like 4000 chars max.etc. etc. etc. ;-) Good luck with those generators ;-) I was trying to use them many many times (always failure). Failure is always an option.
 


PS. Your 'Minion' example contain around ~38000 characters.
I hope you remember that forum signature can be made from maximum 4000 characters.

Your generators are very nice to post a BBCode image on a thread (maybe).
But they are pretty much useless for signature designers.


Best wishes.

The generated minion seem to be fuzzy to look at, and roslinpl is right, it contains more characters compared to the number of maximum allowed characters in signatures which is 4000, which also makes the minion unusable for a signature example.

Roslinpl himself have his own BBcode tutorial for those wanting to get a nice knowledge about them and to somehow monetize your signature design skills with it. BBcode designs, though harder, can be a way to use less characters but have a refined and unique look if you used it correctly.

Try the manytool... link and it gives required characters my friend but anyways I also agree with roslinp and I had no intentions to do anything bad, maybe some guys can earn some free dollars.

thanks for sharing your knowledge of BBCode generators with us. a piece of advice though. Take your address off the top and move it to the bottom of your post. Seeing that first before anything else kind of discredits everything that follows.
present your information, then subtly, place it somewhere towards the bottom. Don't make the font bold or larger than the rest of the characters. I'm not trying to bash you here man, it just comes off as tacky. And definitely, add some working examples of sigs if you are teaching sigs. Good luck man.

What's the max character limit in signature per rank?

Not knowing this makes it hard to design bounty sig code beyond my rank.

Member (me) is 4,000.  Can anyone test theirs and report?
