I was given a great suggestion: Post a sticky topic with links to the various excellent tutorials that have been popping up on these forums lately. This should make it easier for newcomers to the Dundjinni community to quickly find all of the great tips and resources that all of us "old timers" take for granted. So, this thread is for exactly that.

Please post only your tutorial's name, an optional brief description, and a link to the tutorial.

Please refrain from discussion in this thread.

Feel free to link new tutorials here, as well as any old ones.

Not in the forums but hopefully also of use to people... my website has tutorials on

Making Tile Sets
Making Objects (especially how to separate them from the background of a source image)
Taking Photographs for use with Dundjinni


Emphasis on Paint Shop Pro but the concepts may be useful to people using other graphics programs too.

The link is http://www.madreporite.com/rpg/rpg.htm

(Edit: updated links)

Using Wall PNG's For shadows and Effects

Have you ever needed a special effect or shadow for your landscape picture but just did not know how to make it?
Here may be a way for you to do it. Walls can be used for shading or different effects besides just walls. If you leave the "Shadows and Raised Walls" off you have a flat effects when using the pencil.

Here is a picture of a finished work that wall PNG's were used for all the shading.
Here is the tutorial: Tutorial
