How To : Features

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 9, 2012, 3:02 AM
Since i get asked a lot how i create my Features i decided to write a short tutorial about it, i hope it will help some of you :

1. Feature
What we want to create :

17. by Kaasik91
Black Tree by Menoevil
Of course you can add a lot more photos ! ( Example :… )

The html code :

<da:deviation id="312488093" width="600">
<da:deviation id="328534872" width="200"><da:deviation id="309814893" width="400">

- the first part ( <da:deviation id= ) is always the same

- the number you can read in the " " is the thumbnumber of the photo you want to feature
       Example : Thumb Code : :thumb416115653:
                        Thumb Number : 416115653

- width="600" refers to the size of the shown photo but this just works for the width and not for the height of a photo

- if you want to add more than one photo in a row you have to devide the 600 into two, it will take some attempts until they fit perfectly,
  to get what i mean i will add another example code :

<da:deviation id="244977861" width="600">
<da:deviation id="308752257" width="258"><da:deviation id="322423011" width="343">
<da:deviation id="327608338" width="402"><da:deviation id="309308522" width="198">
<da:deviation id="322713010" width="240"><da:deviation id="328051143" width="360">

- this kind of Feature take a lot of patience and time

2. Feature :
What we want to create :

Electrifying - European Bee-eater by Jamie-MacArthur

La Chasse aux Coccinelles by Somebody--else     Color with me? by lieveheersbeestje     Autumnal II by Alessia-Izzo
Of course you can add a lot more photos ! ( Example :… )

The html code :

<da:deviation id="334769788" width="600">

<da:deviation id="296618268" width="180">     <da:deviation id="336689145" width="180">     <da:deviation id="335978346" width="180">

- This works pretty similar to the first Feature

- the sizes of all photos in rows with more than one photo should all together have a smaller size than 600 since you want to leave spaces between them

- it is important that you use only similar photos ( e.g. only squares ) in one row, if you do that you can use the same width for all photos, which is a lot easier and faster

- use a blank line between each row

I hope this will help some of you ! Have fun ♥
And if there are any questions just ask me

I think this only works if you have a premium dA membership - on my account which had a premium membership I used to do features, then when my membership expired the journal skins disappeared and the text was just full of code and no pictures :(

No, i have another account without a PM and this codes still work, only the journal skins aren't allowed anymore :meow:
