[Guide] How to use Chatlog Magician

How to use Chatlog Magician


Hello!
Today I'll show you how to use Chatlog Magician by Kendrick_Underwood. In the spoiler you have the interface of the tool.

Basically, using this tool, you don't need to screenshot the roleplay text which is going to appear on your screenshots later.
You only need to make screenshots with no text and save your chatlogs.
To save your chatlogs you can also use a chatlog archiver — Shammy's Chatlog Archiver.


1. What is Chatlog Magician?
Chatlog Magician is a tool created by Kendrick_Underwood that makes people who posts screenshots on forums' life easier.
You can edit your screenshots very easily with this.
2. How to use Chatlog Magician?
Choose the background of the future text picture — best is white (code #ffffff).
Select a font face — best is Arial (default).
And then select the size you want - I chose default.
Afterwards, copy your chatlog inside the box below the settings.
Under the box, you'll see the text.

3. Ok, I inserted the chatlog and everything. Now what?
You can use a very basic method - press PrtScn on your keyboard, go to paint and press CTRL+V.
Then crop only the text area and save it as .png.
Afterwards, import it in photoshop and remove the white background with magic wand tool.
Or you can use a screenshot tool such as Gyazo or Lightshot to screenshot the area with the text. These programs will upload the picture(lightshot can save it into your PC without uploading it) and then you can download it as a .png and use it in your photo editing program.
4. That's it!
I hope I helped you with this, if you have any questions about the tool, ask its creator - Kendrick_Underwood.

When I use the magic wand tool the text still looks screwed up with white spots and stuff like that. How do I fix it?

Thank you for the guide but I think you should add the link of this web application, sorry if I missed it.

When I try using the Chatlog Magician as you said, the chatlog output comes with a weird size.

You're best to use Photoshop or GIMP to remove the white background using a magic wand tool, or similar.

If you want to just remove the white background, use these settings in Photoshop. Click the white when you have these settings, and then delete.
