Monster images[edit]

Hey! Nice images you are getting in there. If you allow me, let me give you a tip regarding dark environments (which I forgot to mention in my talk page). Try to always target the monster when you take the picture. This will slightly 'lighten up' the monster, making it more visible. However, of course this will not solve all the problems with dark environments (as if I was an expert on the subject, be aware this is a personal opinion).

  • Oh, I actually usually try -not- to target-lightup monsters when taking screenshots, I avoid that on purpose, because target-highlighting an enemy subtly changes the shading of their name, which doesn't matter for most common mobs but can sometimes make it difficult to tell the difference between an orange-name and a red-name, so I don't like it. But your advice is appreciated, so I will reconsider this and maybe highlight critters for future screenshots! TheWarforgedArtificer (Contribs⇑ top ⇑) 15:22, October 13, 2020 (EDT)
  • (and random sidenote; although it -is- one of the few screenshots I accidentally had the mob targeted for, I think I'm most proud of my Boromar Alpha screenshot. I've still got more coming, will put the rest of them up later, but -that- screenshot in particular I think was captured at exactly the perfect time and angle, hahaha!)

    • That one is very funny. It seems it REALLY wanted to play with you! MrLizard (ContribsMessage) 15:31, October 13, 2020 (EDT)
