Wallpaper Challenge FAQ

Q: Can a wallpaper incorporate more than one of my creations?
Yep, you can incorporate as many of your own creations as you like, as long as you include at least one.

Q: Can I use a creation that I already made? Can I edit an older creation and use it in this?
Yes, you can use any of your own creations as long as they were originally authored by you.

Q: Will my wallpaper change the look of the Sporum?
A: No, the goal is to create a desktop wallpaper for use as people's desktop backgrounds. The Sporum skin will not change as a result of this challenge.

Q: Can I use a creation someone else made in this in addition to my own creation?
A: No. All creations used must be by you, but you can supplement the art with scenery from Spore or any of the images available in our fansite kits.

Q: Should I be nesting quotes with other people's images in them?
A: Please don't. If you need to nest quotes, please remove embedded images to keep this thread organized and clean.

Q: Can I use images of the Grox?
A: Yes, the Grox can be incorporated into your image.

Q: Are we allowed to use the stylefilter cheats when taking screenshots for our pics?
A: Yes!

Q: Can I use the Spore logo or Spore Hero? I saw that I can't use copyrighted material.
A: Yes, you can use any image in the fansite kit, including the Spore logo. The copyrighted material rule has been updated to clarify this.

Q: Can the wallpaper be animated?
A: No. Your wallpaper should be in PNG or JPG format.

Q: how do u put ur spore screenshots on one of the available backgrounds?
A: If you take screenshots of creatures using the black background in the creature editor, the saved files will have transparent backgrounds. Use an image editing program such as photoshop to layer these images to your liking. If you use screenshots from Spore Gameplay, you may want to use character art (provided above) to overlap the screenshots. Beyond that, it's up to you, just be creative.

Q: So this background, can it be anything? Like, one of the supplied artwork posters, or can it also be a screenshot we took in-game?
A: Any of these ideas are acceptable. The point is to incorporate some of the Hero art we've posted, and at least one of your own creations (so we have something to feature). How you do this is up to you!

Q: Can we tamper with the background? Like, use various editing tools to change it?
A: Yes!

Q: Can we tamper with the picture of our creation?
A: Yes!

Q: Are we allowed to have text on the walllpaper?
A: Yes!

Q: Can we have more than one entry?
A: Yes, but keep them in seperate posts.

Q: What file extension should my entry be in?
A: JPG or PNG

Q: Do we have to incorporate some of the elements supplied in the OP to be eligible for the contest, or are we free to disregard them in favour of our own components?
A: Since the theme of this challenge is Hero Wallpaper, you must include some thing from Spore Hero, but this can be as prominent or unprominent as you like. It's up to you.

Okay I'm kinda confused as to what the criteria is,

1. So this background, can it be anything? Like, one of the supplied artwork posters, or can it also be a screenshot we took in-game?

2. Can we tamper with the background? Like, use various editing tools to change it?

3. Can we tamper with the picture of our creation?

4. Are we allowed to have text on the walllpaper?

5. Can we have more than one entry?

1)i would think so. with GA you could possible make your own Spore Hero background/
2) OBVIOUSLY YES. it wouldn't look very good if i just slapped one of my creations on one of the spore hero backgrounds.
3)refer to no.2
4)my opinion: rather don't add any, except for the name "Spore Hero".

MC: What about file extension? PSD, JPEG, PNG, BMP ?? let us know please, and am we totally free in using the power of our graphic programs, including filtering, layer effects and the whole circus?

I will join, but just for the fun of it.

tip to the community: Imageshack has a better free support for larger images, Photobucket might autoscale them down on a free account!

I missed the last wallpaper challenge, but now that it's here I fully intend to have a punt at this one.

Just a small question- do we have to incorporate some of the elements supplied in the OP to be elegible for the contest, or are we free to disregard them in favour of our own components?

I would assume the latter, but I'd sooner be certain before I got stuck in.

Thanks.

EDIT: Also, can we put forward vehicles as the entered creation, rather than just creatures?

WHOOPS!

Sorry MC, I seem to misread it somehow, but no matter, luckily I always save my layered PSD files for a quick re-edit:

Now including Spore Hero given ART, and I've changed the text a bit to fit the scene better.






EDIT!: Also made a second one!




Asset used both images: Mewy pre hero

Just some friendly advice: MC wrote this:

Now I don't know if all the images have to be 1024x768,( MC??) but yours is 600x448.
