HOW TO  

HOW TO:

So, let's say you're new to the world of icons and creditting, and want to know what the hell you're supposed to do now that you've seen this site. So below, I've created step-by-step guide on what exactly you do.

First, you're going to follow this link and watch the community-which is also located on the left sidebar, here.
After that, you can click on
[info]coffee_fix at the top of the page, and return back to the main page.
So now you have access to the icons and the posts, which means you can choose any icons you like and use them on your journal.
So you scroll through the page and find one you like, for example- this one:
You're going to right click it and select 'save picture as'. (screenshot)
Continue to save your icon to a folder you'll remember and then select 'ok' or 'save' depending on what type of computer you have.
After you've saved, be sure to comment the icon post that you took it from! I cannot stress that enough. 
          +Click 'leave a comment' and just give me a short little note saying which icon you took, and yaddah yaddah yaddah.
Once you've finished with that, you can upload your new icon to your lj account over here.
Now, your icon should appear at the bottom of the page so scroll down and find it.
Next to the icon there are a couple of bars, correct? One for 'keyword' and one for 'comment'. (screenshot)
In 'keyword' you can put whatever you'd like, it will be the text that appears when you go to choose an icon.
In 'comment' you're going to put the credit for this community.
          +Type in the following:
Your finished credit should look like this:
Click 'save settings' and enjoy your icon!
