Copy a picture into the comic[edit]

  • (Cut and paste from main discussion page):

For people who wonder how to insert a picture that is not mouse-drawn. Follow these steps:

Find the picture you like.
In a grapical editor (such as GIMP) on your computer, make sure that the image only has two colours: black and white. in GIMP this is the 'posterize' option under the 'colors' menu. Save and export the image.
Go to http://base64online.org/encode/ and upload your image there. Tick the 'format as Data URL' checkbox.
In the following script, replace the 'BASE_64_ENCODED_IMAGE_HERE' for the dataURL you've made in the previous step. Copy this to your clipboard.


 function draw_custom_image(){
   context =  $('canvas')[0].getContext('2d');
   context.clearRect(0,0,100000,10000);
   base_image = new Image();
   base_image.src = 'BASE_64_ENCODED_IMAGE_HERE';
   base_image.onload = function(){
     context.drawImage(base_image, 0, 0);
   }
 }
 draw_custom_image();


In Chrome or FireFox (open on the xcloud page where you can draw an image), press Ctrl+Shift+I to open the Developer Panel.
Go to the 'Console' and paste the script from step 4 here. Press Enter.
If all went well, you'll see the image appear on the canvas, and you can submit it by clicking 'Upload Image' on the xkcloud page.

For the best results, ensure that your images are 451x338 pixels in size (as this is the size of the canvas). Good luck! 141.101.64.83 13:27, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
