Hi everyone smile
First I would like to say that this site is just awesome! I've learned so much here....the knowledge you can get here is fantastic, its been a great help to me thank you very much.
I'm almost done with my sticks and stone kit/din set except I'm having a problem with my dishwasher and trash compactor
sad I've tryed different things but cant seem to get them to match my counters, do I need to start over sad I used the same size graphics but as you can see in the picture the counter top on the side is above the counter.
I tryed moving them forward backwards and sideways, I also added more counter top.
thank you for any suggestions you might have.

*hugs*
Jessica
not sure lol if I added this image correctly.

The picture is too small for me to see anything clearly on my resolution but I've had that problem in the past.

It is usually a result of my A channel being different from the counter's A channel. That can make an object seem to be a pixel bigger even if the graphics you are looking at in Photoshop (or what have you) are exactly the same.

Thank you Raeven
I think if you click on the picture it will enlarge, unless I did it wrong.
Is the A channel fixable?

edit: ok lol the alpha I will check that again

Looks like the Alpha to me.

Perhaps there is some wayward shading on your DGRP sprites (the yellow ones... what do we call them?) that make it look out of alingment.

Possibly your Zs, but it dosen't really look like it to me (I just like to say everything I can think may possibly cause things by some strange stretch of (ill)logic).

What about the x/y positioning - ie does the dishwasher line up on the tile with the counter? ie are they in the same place on the tile? To me the dishwasher seems to be back a little on the tile. It's not lining up with the back edges of the counter or at the front base.

btw, that is a GORGEOUS kitchen. I adore the stove!

Looks great so far! Nice to know you got it figured out.

BTW, if you're linking to an ImageShack image, you don't need the extra [img] [/img] tags -- the "Forums:" code that ImageShack gives you is enough by itself (it already has the [img][/img] tags in it).
