Ever wanted to be able to use Tokentool to create anti-aliased token borders with effects such as drop shadows?
With a simple trick, it is easily done - here's how.
First you need to find or create a nice border of the right size with a drop shadow: here's the one I use for my 4th edition campaign (256 pixels square):
Then create a simple 'trimming' border to chop out the picture prior to using the above nice border (256 pixels square):
1. Add both to the Tokentool overlays.
2. Choose the trimming overlay and drag your desired picture into the Tokentool window. Save the token. This creates a round picture with transparent surrounds.
3. Change the overlay to the final border version and drag the newly saved 'trimmed' token into the Tokentool window and position so the edges of the trimming guide are hidden. Ensure the 'Solid Background' option is not checked
and then save this token:
So with the minor task of doing it twice you have now got tokens that can have pixels outside the token layout edge that are not 100% opacity, i.e. anti-aliased edges and/or a drop shadow.
Hope this is useful to some.
