Ever wanted to make a beautiful picture in-world without editing it in Gimp or Photoshop?


I came up with a solution:

Login to Second Life and teleport to the location you want to take your picture. Remember: It has to be “Build” enabled.

Once you have found the place. Right click on the ground and choose: “Create”. Rez on the ground a primitive box:

Then go to the “Texture” tab. Set “Texture” to be “Blank”:

Set “Color” to Yellow (default):

Set the “Transparency” to 85:

Set “Glow” to 0.20:

Now go to “Object” tab and set these to the size section: X: 5.000, Y: 0.500, Z: 5.000:

Move the prim (by the arrow keys) to the place you want to take your picture. Rotating it to head to the direction. Zoom onto the prim by holding the ALT key:

Take a snapshot and upload it in-world! :D

Here is an example of a picture I took with this method at Straylight:

I came up with this idea myself, took me a long time to find this out. So please respect copyrights to this tutorial. Thanks.
