Answers


Can I use your graphics?

Of course! That's why I made this journal, to share my passion for icons, layouts and other graphics. Any graphic you find here is by myself and is free for snagging.

EXCEPT if you see a NOT SNAGABLE in the post. Then please, do not grab the graphic.

Can I use your stylesheets?

You may snag the CSS and tweak it to your liking. But please give me credit if you do.

TOP



Can I request a graphic?

No longer open. Sorry.

Commenting and crediting

If you want, you can leave a comment on the post containing the graphic but it's not necessary (though it makes me feel all fuzzy ^-^).

The same applies for crediting. You can credit me but I won't hunt you down if you don't ;)

How do I credit your icons?

Go to Your Userpics and upload the icon. Enter in the field beside it <lj user="mercscilla">



If you use one of my icons on the web (a board or forum etc.), please link back.

How do I credit your layouts?

Go to Personal Info and enter in the Bio field 'Layout by <lj user="street_of_mercy">'

How do I install your layouts?

I wrote a set-up guide (with screencaps) in English and German over at this post.

- CSS Set-Up Guide (English / Deutsch)

- Profile Layout Set-Up

- Sidebar Customization

- Changing the default Mini User Icons

located HERE.

Can I repost any of your work?

You may if you do the following:

1) Leave me a comment on the post where you found the graphic/layout.

2) Upload everything to your own server.

3) Credit me in the entry when you post my work.

Graphics can not be modded, whereas layouts can, as long as the following dual credit is given and required of anyone else using your modded version(s):
Layout originally by <lj user="street_of_mercy">, modified by <lj user="YOURUSERNAME">

What program do you use to make your graphics?

I use Photoshop CS 2. I wrote tutorials for Photoshop which you can find here. You can also request a tutorial for a graphic by leaving a comment on the respective post.

Where did you get the screen captures/pictures for this graphic?

To take a look at my resources (the stuff of the awesome people I wouldn't be able to work without), go to this post.

TOP



What if a download link doesn't work?

Leave me a comment on the respective entry or send me an e-mail to mercscilla[at]livejournal[dot]com. Be sure to name the link which doesn't work!
