How to create simple frames for comic strips

Post#1 by trandoductin » 28 Sep 2016, 03:57

So I created this simple program to help create frames easily for comic strips.
The program can be found here: Comic Strip Frame in codeskulptor
Click on play button once the page loads,
Click "Add frame line" button to add horizontal frame line
Click on any end point of the added frame line to move/edit line
Right click on image to view image or save image as (when complete)
You can change the first 4 constants of program and run it again using play button.
or Comic Strip Frame in codeskulptor with automatic snapping to line functionality <-- (This is much better version I think)

If you really want you can play around with constants at the beginning of program code to change some settings such as width, height, linewidth, blacklinewidth but the default should be okay (width*height is defaulted as 800*600).
Once you run program, the view area might be smaller than the full image (you can hover over the edges of the window to resize the window to see the whole image)
Once program is running, click on "Add frame line" to add a default horizontal frame line.
Click on any endpoint of a frame line and drag to change its position
Once you're happy with the frame you've created, you can right click on image and "View Image" or "Save Image As" just like you would any other web image.
Here's a sample of what the program can create (very quickly).


Alternately, if you don't want to use this simple program, there's a really easy way to create these frames in GIMP as well (using the Path tool) there's a trick on how to get a constant width frame. --> Check out instructions for GIMP here on my blog
