Obtaining item artwork for new wiki entries

Postby fusilli » Thu Feb 26, 2015 8:00 pm

I've noticed a few items have not yet been added to the wiki and would like to add them, but I'm having a hard time finding a resource for item artwork. I've attempted a few avenues and these seem to be out of date. If anyone would be so kind as to walk me through this process (PM's might be required?) I'd be much obliged.

Here is a page explaining how to take screenshotsl. There is also a video.

If you just want a picture of the item itself what I used to do was drag it over the black area and take the screenshot. Move the cursor at the same time if it gets in the way.

There is a program called uoreader which reads EC files, though everything is numbered rather than named.
The way I use it is to get the item id from game using the EC client and then close the client and look up the number in UO Reader under 'tile art'. I actually use the windows 'snipping tool' to get a picture I can use.
