Comic Bubbles

Postby Remyth » Thu Feb 08, 2007 5:13 am

I am sorry if this has been asked before, but how do you make the comic bubbles on a MOC? I have been fiddling around and I can't find a way. Any help here would be very helpful.

Thanks,
Thomas Wunz <><

First off, what program do you have to mess with your pictures?

I am forced to use paint. If you do, here is what I would do. I would simply use the rectangle box with curved edges in paint and have the edge color and the fill color white. Create the box, then go to the "line" setting, and creat two lines out of the box to the person speaking fill in, and vola! A speaking box. Simple yet good. Add text by simply using the text place.

As I said, it is a simple process using "Paint," but don't use paint for ANYTHING else. It is SO annoying to resize pictures in paint! :lol:


Hope this helps!

Ninja, your post has nothing to do with this topic. Please refrain from this in the future. This is something for which you could have used the Private Message system.

I think he was going to post in the announcements (Athos's topic), but posted it here instead ;).

I think you're right. That would make a lot more sense! :)

And this is all of topic!!! Now about word bubbles. Remyth, with paint I just put the text with a line from whoever said it. You could also make a white circle with a cone sticking out of the bottom, shouldn't be to hard, just make sure the text will fit.

I'm not in tune with the world of LEGO publishing, so please don't laugh. However, is it possible to just use the speech bubble callout on PowerPoint?
