I will not point which ones were edited because ppl will complain even more.

I feel like they should just comment here, instead of PM'ing.. The only reason they would have to hide it is if they are not 100% certain the pics are photoshoped. I'd especially love to know which ones are, seeing as one of mine was selected and I don't even know how to use photoshop, so I'd hate for people to not vote for mine just because they think it is photoshopped :/..

Self-explanatory. Thats how it works.. a person without much experience with editing programs will not see a difference. I'm a person who had to deal with photoshop at work everyday for 3 years. I puke with it now and see it everywhere tho I may still sometimes be wrong (yes, I thought wings are photoshopped too).

I disagree. I think it is healthy to point out our doubts, because that way we can clear them. The case of wings, for instance, is the perfect proof: I didn't know if that was an in-game effect, so I had doubts, though I would never assume it was photoshopped as a fact because I knew I didn't have enough information. Other users have pointed out that they actually create that effect, so now people can vote that picture without being influenced by any doubt :)

there are a LOT of ingame effects, that u will mistake for photoshop)) i also worked with photoshop, lightroom and so on, retouching model and scenery shots, but i also spent a LOT of time messing around with screenshot camera in bdo, vignette here for some reason gives blinks to all light sources, sometimes it looks even cool~ and much more

million times i took a screenshot and thought "wow, that wont even need any photoshop editing, it already looks like it's been through it %D"

 

the only reason i would use PS on bdo screenshots is to smoothen some low-res textures' edges or fix ugly character's hands, but that's it...

Ya so it's a little underhanded to just throw out an accusation like that and have NOTHING whatsoever to back it up, don't you think?

"One of the people in this room is a fraud, but I won't point out which one or present any proof because ppl will complain" oh okay how.. constructive

sadly I cant agree most of the nominated screenshots, some were just screenshot of your character and nothing related to seasons, wasn't the event supposed to representing the seasons? some even used desert for summer event, tho desert is all year thing, its nothing to do with seasons.

 

First sentence in 1st post:

Take a screenshot of your characters in the theme of each season

 

So I cant agree with all the landscape screenshots.

I've seen a lot very well done screens on here I feel are superior by far to the ones selected (picture composition, color scheme, lighting etc). Better than mine, so I'm ok with not being picked. The October was tough, it had a few very good ones but the majority of the others ... c'mon, really?

Please next time just tell us what resolution you will pick so us with lower end PC don't spent the effort though ...

I don't want this to negatively impact me so, I just wanted to clear up that I did not photoshop the wings effect in my submission. That's how it appears in the game. Here's another example of the wings effects.tumblr_ofwou5PNTn1qd1xuuo1_1280.jpg

I second this a really cool effect!

Btw one pic I wanted to point out is one of Risas winter pics, she dyed the Witch Weeny Looney Outfit in Santa Elf colours which work really well:

A really nice shot that didn't make it in sadly but one of my personal favourites, well done Risa! :)

Mine is the wizard in black silhouette with an eagle on his shoulder, hehehe.

haha. I made november #5... this is how november looks to me in The Netherlands (the foggy weather and the cold at least). Take in mind november is really close to christmass and winter too. I'm probably not going to make it in the calendar, because there's 1 picture in there that absolutely steals the nr.1 spot. But I really tryed my best on that. I was really happy I made it into the voting section, but due to all the complaints and angry people, it kinda makes me sad now. :/

Your picture gave me a winter feel and you're right, since you mentioned that, November is practically winter. It's just that my favorite season is Autumn/Fall and the most beautiful part of Fall is the trees changing colors and the colorful leaves on the ground <3  #4 reminds me of my summer nights in the mountains watching the sun go down. Especially my summer nights in Puerto Rico and Montana. Very beautiful. But, that doesn't mean it reminds everyone of summer. With #3 It was more like "the characters look badass in it and so cool! Like for the cover of a game or comic book" because thats all u really see and the moon of course  but that wasn't the point of the event >.< I was just slightly disappointed. It doesn't mean I'm not grateful for GM's throwing this event for us :D  Nobody and everything isn't going to be 100% perfect. Congrats on making it to voting! Goodluck! Dont feel sad D: You guys made it up there for a reason, bcuz your screenshots are very nice!

Thanks for liking them! ♥

P.S Goodluck for tomorrow guys! Can't wait to see the winners!
