@  Idiot : (14 August 2017 - 01:08 PM) Aside from maybe a twitter, and a Skype I no longer have access to lol.
@  Idiot : (14 August 2017 - 01:08 PM) I don't actually have any public contact information, though. So that would explain why you don't have it.
@  Fire Blazer : (14 August 2017 - 05:08 AM) ahahaha. can't fault that logic.
@  kirant : (14 August 2017 - 01:41 AM) A quiet forum suits me better I think...so few hours in the day that I don't feel like sorting through all the activity on an active one for the nuggets of gold. Sturgeon's law and all.
@  kirant : (14 August 2017 - 01:40 AM) Ha. Someone assumes I leave forums. I think there's been 2 (?) that I've quit before their servers got shut down.
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 09:08 PM) hmmmm~
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:43 PM) i dunno, just thinking with these forums being kinda lifeless, i'll get sad thinking i have no way to talk to some people anymore. even if they are an idiot :P

@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:42 PM) if you have Discord you should at least add me there.
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:42 PM) now that I think about it, I don't have any of your contact info, Idiot.
@  Fire Blazer : (13 August 2017 - 08:41 PM) there's really no shortage of bad or concerning or upsetting news lately, so I can agree with that. though maybe it's a bit of an understatement... lol
@  Idiot : (12 August 2017 - 12:03 PM) I think meh is an accurate description of current times in general lol
@  zac : (12 August 2017 - 03:59 AM) it's been a very "meh" kinda time
@  zac : (12 August 2017 - 03:59 AM) nothing is going on right now, game releases i'm actually interested in have been slow
@  zac : (12 August 2017 - 03:59 AM) honestly i have wanted to post, but just haven't had anything to post about
@  kirant : (09 August 2017 - 03:50 AM) I'm starting to imagine it like a twice shy situation (or as Wikipedia tells me, mamihlapinatapai)...we're wanting to post but don't want to be the first one to post.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 August 2017 - 01:32 AM) *sees "45 users are online"*

So I just barely joined and am already asking questions.

 

Anyways, I wanted to try messing with Portraits, and as an exercise, I spliced Ephraim's head on Franz's body, and gave this guy the hair color of some boss in FE8, and used Ephraim's hair color for the armor (Which I think looks pretty cool!). Now, after finally getting down to 16 colors and the 128x112 dimensions, I went and tried to insert it into FEditor. Alas, this all occurred (see attached pictures). 

 

I tried the classic click and drag in FEditor, which usually solves these kinds of problems, but it didn't work this time.

 

I used the portrait of Franz as a template, so I thought I had dimensions correct on the half-closed eyes and closed eyes sections, but I could be completely off. So my question is: Are there any glaring mistakes on my portrait thing? I tried shifting things around a bit, but it didn't seem to immediately fix the problem...

 

Any advice?

That's an alignment thing. You'll need to shift the portrait(specifically the mugshot portion) until it lines up. Your best bet here is trial and error, just keep trying until you've gotten it close, then start counting how many pixels off you are. You'll get there eventually ^_^

Your best bet is actually the use of a grid that comes with some image editing programs. It specifically shows you the borders you need to follow.

Thank you both so much! I followed your instructions, and it turns out that I was just trying to be lazy and just do whatever I could without any sort of grid. But in my defense, I wasn't able to find a template like the one Mercurius had until now. I'm definitely saving that to use later! 
 
So thank you both so much! :D  :D

That template is twice as big as it should be (because I had to show the grid properly), this is the properly sized one (although as mentioned in the guide you really should use a program that has layers if you are going to use it, like paint.net or Photoshop)
