The graphics sector is a collection of resources, contributed by various members of the forums. Things like textures, tutorials, patterns and brushes can be found here, and there is a freebie section as well. Please feel free to use anything you like!

Adding resources and freebies

If you would like to share your resources and freebies with other members, send a PM to me, Valentine, or dragonite. The topic of the PM should be 'Re: The Graphics Sector'. Tell us what you want to add, such as a free signature or an imagepack.

Adding textures
Link us to a page (or pages, if you've uploaded them on deviantART) containing all of the textures you would like to add.
Ideal texture sizes are 800x600, 1024x738, and 600x450.
Note: Icon-sized textures (100x100) must all be on one single page.

Adding patterns & gradients
Link us to a page (one single page, no exceptions) containing all of your patterns or gradients.
Only 100x100 patterns and gradients will be accepted. If yours are bigger, resize them in a program such as GIMP.

Adding brush packs and imagepacks
Upload a compressed folder to a file sharing site that DOES NOT delete the file after a certain time period or deviantART. DeviantART is preferred. Link us to the download.
Note: For imagepacks, you can just link us to a page containing all of the images (on one canvas; all of the contents are on one single image), but I'd like it if you used the method above instead.

Adding tutorials, icons, signatures, etc.
Link us to the image.

Compressed folders

Compressed folders are what I really want for the resources to be in, if you have multiples (6+). I'm aware that not everybody knows how to upload the compressed folders to the internet, however, so I'll tell you how.

DeviantART
- Go to a folder (such as My Pictures) and right click somewhere in the open space. Under 'New', click on 'compressed folder'.
- Right click on the compressed folder and rename it (example: if you're going to add 10 icon textures, name the file '10 Icon Textures').
- Select all of the images you are going to put in the folder, right click and select 'copy'.
- Open your compressed folder, right click and select 'paste'.
- Go to your page (usernamehere.deviantart.com) and click on 'Submit Deviation'.
- Under 'category', go to Tutorials & Resources > whatever you're uploading. If what you're submitting isn't on the list, choose 'Miscellaneous'. Note: If you're uploading a big pack of avatars, put it under Desktops & Customization > Icons > Avatars > Miscellaneous.
- Press on 'Add a file' and select your compressed folder.
- You will notice that it will say something along the lines of 'preview image required'. You should have known about this (and already made one) before, but, if you didn't, open up your image manipulating program and make a preview image. The preview image should be 300x100, and it should contain previews of your work.
- Add the description and tags and press submit!

Other file sharing sites
- Go to a folder (such as My Pictures) and right click somewhere in the open space. Under 'New', click on 'compressed folder'.
- Right click on the compressed folder and rename it (example: if you're going to add 10 icon textures, name the file '10 Icon Textures').
- Select all of the images you are going to put in the folder, right click and select 'copy'.
- Open your compressed folder, right click and select 'paste'.
- Go to the file sharing site and upload your compressed folder!

Be warned! WinRAR messes things up; you don't have a compressed folder option. A good choice would be to uninstall it, but, if you don't want to, use one of the other methods.

Regulations for contributing

- Realize that everybody, whether they're signed up on the site or not, has access to your resources.
- Unless you tell us that you want credit, credit will not be required for the use of any of your resources. So, people might be using your free avatar on another site without you ever knowing about it.
- Even if we let people know that you want to be credited for the use of your work, we cannot guarantee that people will acknowledge you when they use your resources. We're not responsible for some kid's actions, so don't put the blame on us if your work is stolen or used without credit.
- Brushes MUST be in a compressed folder. No ifs, buts or whys.
- The content you submit has to abide by the forum rules, obviously. No pornographic material and the like.
- Stolen work is not acceptable. When someone tells me that your resources and/or freebies have been ripped from another site, they're removed just like that and you will be reported to the admins.
- When submitting works in compressed folders, do not upload them on yousendit.com; your upload will expire in 7 days or 25 uploads, whichever comes first. If you don't want to use deviantART, use a site like maxupload.
