From the specific forms to submit each type of contribution, to the Contribution Programme pages, Tutorials and F.A.Q's, as well as a Contribution Highscore list (called "Hall of Fame") and your own Contribution List.
The link mentioned above will lead you to a form where you can upload the image and tag it, to connect the screenshot with the content available in our data base (items, monsters, achievements, etc). Once you uploaded the picture and selected the tags, just click the "Submit" button.
You can also send Screenshots using the Contribution Tab, at the end of every page in our database, guides, etc.
A good and well took screenshot, should follow these standards:
As we already stated, you must take care of editing the image properly, not unnecesary big (unless you need to upload the whole game window image), but not too small either. If you prefer and you don't need to upload an image desplaying the whole game window, you can add the official fansite frame to the screenshot or our Tibia Royal official frame. To do that just follow these steps:
First, you must know how to take a screenshot. You just need to hit the "Print Screen" key.
Open Paint, and paste the image. You can do it using the shortcut "Ctrl+V"
The next step is to select the frame you want to add to the screenshot. Use the Tibia Royal frame. Download it here!.
Go back to paint, and select the option "paste from", then select the file of the frame you chose, it will be pasted on the screenshot you took.
Once you see the frame on your screen, you will notice the white background on it. To take it of, make sure you enabled the option "Selection/Transparent selection". Now, move the frame to the center of the screenshot where the "game window" is, or where.
Once you see the frame on your screen, you will notice the background on it. To take it of, make sure you enabled the option "Selection/Transparent selection", or just put the color you want to remove as background color in paint. Now, move the frame to the center of the screenshot where the "game window" is.
Unselect everything (click somewhere in the image, outside the selection) and the frame will be pasted. Now, in order to remove the extra spaces, you must move the whole image to the upper left-corner in paint and then adjust the image to the borders of the frame.
To do this, hit "Ctrl+E" to select the whole image, and move it to the upper left-corner. The corner of the frame needs to be exactly in the point 0 px - 0px.
Time to adjust the rest of the extra spaces...
Voilà!... your screenshot has a nice frame now.
As we said, when it's a valid screenshot that is at the same time unique and it adds something new and fresh to our data base. Something you wont find in other sites around the Internet. For example, Nostalgia screenshots, bugs, hardcore Huntings, extremelly lucky loots, rare events, or just something we didn't have already. Be creative and impress us!, by giving 2 points for this kind of screenshots we want to encourage players to share their most valuable moments on the game and offer to our members things they would not see in other sites about Tibia. In the example at left you can see how old armors look in the past (the screenshot was taken in Nostalgia Island, only accessable during the 15th Anniversary.)
Cause it doesn't follow the minimum standards, or it is a repeated screenshot and there is no point on having it in our data base, it simply doesn't add something new. For example, many users uploading an image in front of a gold coin, or many users uploading the screenshot of a boss in the same location, etc. If you want your screenshot getting approved to receive points, you should help us to create a very unique data base that offers variety to our community. That's our main goal.
