If all I want is to see white, why would I need more than one giant pixel? It's not that I don't want to see the fine variations between a 100% white pixel and another 100% white pixel... it's just that it's useless... There's no white image that is lighter than 1 white pixel... 1 byte? I don't even know...Zacchia wrote:Oh, that really works fine
Thank you. Why 1 Pixel Image?
I have both this white pixel and a black pixel in my textures library
LOL There are several methods!Bob James wrote: How do you make a 1 pixel image?
A - From an image editor:
1 - Open your image editor of choice;
2 - File > New...
3 - On the image size dialog you set it to 1px x 1px.
4 - Open the paint bucket tool
5 - Paint the only available layer white;
6 - All your pixels are now white;
7 - Export your image in your prefered format (I tend to love png but why bother, you can use jpg, tiff, gif and if you want your white level to be really powerfull use an EXR with 32-bit depth and crank the brightness to the max! That should be fun!)
B - From Thea:
1 - Setup any kind of scene with a light source;
2 - Create a camera with a resolution of 1px x 1px or override your current camera resolution on Darkroom;
3 - Set exposure settings like this:
- ISO 99999;
- F-Number 0.1;
- Shutter Speed 0.1;
5 - Save the image to any of the formats above (HDR should also be fun)
C - From Sketchup:
1 - Delete everything from your sketchup model;
2 - Set your style to have a white background with no sky or ground;
3 - Set your style to don't display axis;
4 - Export 2D graphic;
5 - 2D graphic options set your widt or height (wichever is the biggest) to 1 px;
6 - Save as any format you seen above (minus exr or hdr)
D - From the Internet:
1 - Google Search;
2 - Download.
E - From here:
1 - Download:
As a bonus I'll offer, completely free, gratis, and without charging a "Black Pixel" in extra quality png format: (This is a limited time offer for Presto 1.5 and limited to existing stock)
