Yes it has several images. If you are using Firefox try using a different browser.

Feathering is impossible. I can't do it. It never looks like a sword....

I just find it all to be really difficult. The feathering takes a ton of practice, but just doing basic things takes me so long to do that I get frustrated and go look for ISOs to download.  :(

Question: How the buggers do I get a Custom Decal to work? I can't make any sense outta how to tell the freaking Build Mode how to find my Custom Decal Pic. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. For now, I have the Pic to become a Test Decal simply sitting in my My Pictures Folder. I was gonna try applying it to a Dummy Shield to practice Decaling before I try doin it in a serious way, but I can't even begin till I can get the Decal into the game. :(

Many thanks for your time. :)

Hello Tyrax, I just started using Decals last night so I think I can help.
First off make sure your picture is 512x512 pixels, you can edit it by right clicking and selecting edit.
Save it as a PNG image, JPG doesn't work.
Then it's just a matter of making sure you spell the path right and include all spaces, dashes and capitals.
E.G C:/My Pictures/(your image name).png
Your image should pop up in the window then you just create it by clicking the button.

Hope this helps.

No amount of trying to path to my My Pictures Folder helped, but I FINALLY got it to work by sticking the Pic into my C Drive then pathing to it there. Makes me wonder if it's impossible for the game to find anything Decal related that's not in your Drive directly.

New Question: If a ISO with Custom Decals is Uploaded to ISO Planet Explorer, does that Upload include the Custom Decal File along with it automatically?

I just checked and you are right, it will not path to My pictures or Documents it does have to be on the drive sorry about that.
And as for the upload question, I simply don't know just assumed that it did, it seems i have way more to learn.
The worst thing is, i already uploaded some stuff without giving the decal any thought at all, won't look right without it.

Yep, it load every thing you need to create the iso like you post it in your VoxelCreationData.
