Got a question about making TC's in paint. I just started doing it yesterday, and made the ones in my signature...but as you can see, the trainers look a little funny, because when I pasted them in, they had a black background, forcing me to use the paint bucket to get rid of the black. Anybody know how to fix this problem so my trainer's don't look like they have spikes sticking out of them?

Well you could always try to get the trainers from a different location. The stickied resources would be a good start.

I think the problem might be paint, its craptacular, try get Photoshop, (PM me if you want it illegally) or download Paint.Net (google it) which is sooo much better than paint, not as simple but easier to use than photoshop with as good results, all my TC's turn out good and thats what i use.

EDIT: Also the reason the trainer sprite looks craptacular, is when you used the paint bucket it removes the black from the sprite aswell as the black background so what i use to do was get the pencil and make a 1 pixel line border between any black i want to keep and want to get rid of.
Look at the difference between your trainer sprite and the trainer standing next to the Bowser Lvl 70 Blastoise, theres a big difference

The black occurs because the graphic was made to have a transparent background, so there really isn't much you can do about removing the black yourself, cept for trying out Parania's suggestion.

And by the way, it isn't what program you use at all.

Anywho, a while ago I intended to set up my own TC shop, and I may do so one day. But at the moment I can't be bothered, so I'll just display my two designs here.

MiniTC: Involves a trainer sprite and 6 pokemon icons.

LargeTC: Involves a trainer sprite, 3 pokemon and a space for moves on the side. Inspired by the Battle Trainer Ecards

Yeah, that's how I prepared them for my shop, and I even went to the trouble to create a lil RGB tutorial for those who might not have understood ^^;

I have a question. DOes anybody have any normal Coordinator cardd templates, frontier pass templates, and gym leader card templates I can use? I can make TC's, but I can't find any of those templates.

I'm thinking of opening a shop(again) for my pokemon info cards.
<<< Example

But there is a problem, I have a very short attention span and thats why my first shop got closed. Do you think I should still open one.

The reason it's a that speed is if someone wanted to look at the info on your pokemon, but I could easily speed it up. If you mean the transition between each card, I think I could speed that up too.

I just started making trainer cards a few days ago. Here are my first two:





The first one I made for myself. That was my first card. Then I made a Kanto Fire themed one. Now I am making a Kanto Grass themed one I love Kanto.

What do you guys think?

@MrDreavus:

The only issue with the first one may be the colors...you may want to stick with one color and its shades (like blue) or pick less saturated colors (not as bright colors.)

Second one is very nice, the yellow and red go well together and the background doesn't overpower the rest of the card. Well done!

EDIT:

Okay, out of boredom I decided to scratch a template to test my own card-making abilities. NOTE that the data here does not reflect my current status...I don't own Diamond and Pearl yet. Also, the ID no. and Friend Code are NOT mine. They are FAKE.



Credits are as follows:

Pkmn Icons: PokemonElite2000, Pokesho
Trainer: PE2K, major edits by me
Overworld Sprite: Original screen is from Serebii, restored by me to the best of my abilities. STEAL AND SUFFER.
Background: Spriter's Resource
Mini-Pokeball Icons: ME. If you want to use them, PM me.
Badges + Ribbons: Again, here.
Pochama Sprite + Item/Ball sprites: Serebii
Template: ME

--

Comments + Critique greatly appreciated.

Hm... maybe a 6? I'll try to ignore the 1000s of pixels of white you left on there. Hopefully you were planning deleting it when you're finished.

Ok - First thing: Why did you resize it? Never, ever resize cards.
Second: The name looks out of place on the card. Maybe use a different font?
The badges look slightly misaligned, but it might just be the resized effect.
The background looks very nice, and the pokemon are all in the boxes. Good.
The trainer looks fine also.

It's nothing special, just the average 6-pokemon card, with badges, trainer sprite, and name. Not much to be said about it.

You might want to edit that into a link, it's kinda huge.

It's decent, better then some people's =P Though a couple tips

Save the File as .png, as jpeg WILL pull color out of the cards, and make them fuzzy.
Bring the file into paint and get rid of all the white around it by pulling the ACTUAL card (not the white stuff) to the top left corner so that the top and left ends are on the edge of the screen, then pull the rest of the cavas to the bottom and right side, which gets rid of the whiteness (Paint can also save as png, that's where I do all my cards )

Hey guys and girls, I've made a nice trainer card today to pass some time. So here it is!


...hmm, now that I look again, I think Mewtwo's a tad off-center...

Tools used:
Microsoft Paint
Paint.NET
The Internet (via Mozilla Firefox)

Resources used:

Very Good. Though I do have one suggestion: Change the green to a red-ish/pink-ish color. The green conflicts with the red too much.

@White Mage: I like it. Alot. The shiny 3D-ish effect on the black looks very nice, and the background picture doesn't overpower the sprites, but stands out. Just a few places that didn't get the white deleted; above typhlosion's flame at the top there's one pixel, under it's right arm there's a fairly large space, and between raichu's ears. Other than that, it's perfect, imo.

Well, they look pretty good, and I think alot of people would request them.

Many Requests + Short Attention Span = bad.

I wouldn't suggest it :\

Well, the forum description does mention showing off designs, so here's my latest creation.



As you can see I used a map of Shino for the background. Thanks to Alana for the badges.
