Dominion Card Image Generator v1.3

https://shemitz.net/static/dominion3/

Forcing people to use Photoshop or GIMP or whatever with elaborate downloadable template files has always seemed a bit of a silly barrier to card (mockup) creation, so I wrote a quick tool that lets you type in your card's text, choose some colors and a picture, and get the image generated for you. (Tested on desktop in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera--doesn't work in IE11, but not in a way that gives any error messages or anything, so I don't know what's going on there yet.)

The URL updates itself as you change the various fields, so all you need to do to save a card is copy (or bookmark) the URL and you'll be able to come back to it later. Once you're done, right click the image preview and your browser of choice should give you some options to copy and/or save the image (at a much higher resolution than displayed in the webpage).

Uses edits of the Action template image on BGG,the Event template and Traveller arrow from this thread, plus specific card scans and the Shuffle iT images.

Note: This tool should be viewed as a work-in-progress for the time being. The card images produced for specific texts and other options may look different in the future than they do now. The latest update is version 1.3; replies prior to this post are responding to earlier versions.



Some samples, but written more as excuses to test the various colors and icons than as serious efforts to make good cards...

Wow, I always wanted to make this myslef but I lacked the skill! A few comments:

Text in the middle is Times New Roman, in coin symbols and the such it's minion heavy std.

I have some nicer templates I could PM.

It would be nice if there was a way to upload an image, and an easy way to resize it.

A quick wording/punctuation guide at the bottom would be cool.

The preview coins are off kilter

VP symbols and Big Treaure icons aren't properly implimented.

Still, wow. It's not as good as making them by hand but it's still pretty good.

Thanks for the tips!
Text in the middle is Times New Roman, in coin symbols and the such it's minion heavy std.
Times New Roman should be right unless I messed up the syntax for setting up a multi-word font name... I can double-check, though. The coin symbol thing is a good tip, I didn't think to check that and it should be easy to implement.
Quote
I have some nicer templates I could PM.
If there's something that's generally accepted as the best template (and at a similarly high resolution), that would be good... I won't enjoy redoing all the hardcoded sizes and offsets, but it shouldn't take too long.
Quote
It would be nice if there was a way to upload an image, and an easy way to resize it.
Uploading shouldn't be too hard to implement, but it wouldn't be possible to maintain the image across visits to the page, so there's a tradeoff there. :( It's probably a good idea, but didn't feel like a Day 1 feature. By resizing I'm guessing you mean zooming in so you don't use the entire image? That'd probably more than double the code (and I'd want to minimize it in the API somehow, to keep things simple until you need them complicated), but there might be libraries somewhere I could find...
Quote
A quick wording/punctuation guide at the bottom would be cool.
If one already exists, I could include it?
Quote
The preview coins are off kilter
Ah, I forgot to double-check the positioning on all the corner icons, thanks.
Quote
VP symbols and Big Treaure icons aren't properly implimented.
VP symbols should be okay, you just have to precede % with a space or it won't be parsed as a symbol... I can probably get the rules to be a little more flexible, but again this was enough for a first try. There is indeed no way yet to have the extra-sized treasure/VP lines; I don't know if there's a formal rule that predicts when those are or aren't used, and I hoped if I posted here without implementing that then somebody would tell me how it's supposed to work. :-[

Had to test it myself, so I quickly slapped together an idea I had for awhile...and I was impressed. Thanks for this quick and easy tool!
Edit: Got a decent looking custom color for Seasons cards a la asper and co0kiel0rd. The numbers: 10, 1.1, 1.35. I find it looks better if you set it as both the primary and secondary colors.

A few more things:

The cost and types need to be centered a little better

Type font should be smaller

and their numbers (like on catherdral) need to be bigger and bolder

It would be nice to have an option to specifically bold/itallic things.


I'm working on a quick Wording guide that I'll pm.

Neat!  Any plans for an Event/Landmark generator?

Sure, but since such a thing will reuse a lot of the same code--including, I suppose, the custom color stuff--I'd like to get this done first so that I only have to make changes in one place at a time.

Hmm.  I noticed that the lettering for the cost of the cards seems a little thin?  If you compare it to normal dominion cards, the cost numbers are a little thicker, bolder.  Is it possible to tweek that a little?

I emailed him nicer templates, and all the Cost and Coin icons he could need (+/.) He should update it sometime soon, but it's a lot of work I belive so be patient  :).

Could you add a way to add italics?

I believe things like "(This is not in the supply.)" and "(This stays in play.)" are supposed to be in italics.

Edit: Also more control over Bold. It seems to try to auto-bold things for you, but messes up sometimes. Here's an example: http://shemitz.net/static/dominion3/?title=Bold%20Test&description=Choose%20one%3A%0A%2B1%20Card%20and%20%0A%2B1%20Action%3B%20or%20%2B%20%242&type=Action&price=%243&preview=&picture=&color0=0&color1=0

Hey, this is cool artwork.  Fan cards can have whatever name the designer wants, and if he does change it, he can call it "Golden Fountain" to keep this picture.

I apologize, my intention was not to sound rude. However, it is still a good idea for fan cards not to share names with official cards. At the time I posted that, I couldn't think of a way to change the name and keep the artwork, and tried to do something that turned out looking really stupid...

I didn't think you sounded rude. I just kinda like the picture.

Interesting idea. I fear that it is either too weak in Kingdoms with no other durations or crazily overpowered in Kingdoms with cheap durations.
