is there a WoW graphics gallery anyplace?

Is there any online resource, even if a bit dated that has the various bits of the Interface Art viewable and categorized in some fashion?

I'm looking for edgefiles at the moment. I'd hate to have to unpack and convert to something viewable if somebody already has something available.

Googling turns up so much chaf that I'm not seeing it if there is one

you can also use the console and export all the art files and use XnView to convert them to jpg or png

I looked at the art browser and it will show the graphics, but I have to go into each item separately to look. It works but is very cumbersome.

I've seen the console thing, but have yet to get something along that line to work for me. Do you have any instructions on just how to do it or point me to something that does? I can't seem to get the console to fire up. I've put -console on the end of the start command on a copy of the shortcut, but so far getting nothing. I'm still looking at this (between interruptions) and just haven't yet found it.

Click the "Show all images" link above the file/folder list. It will take you to a page showing all of the graphics in the current folder on the same page.

For example, if you're browsing the Interface/Archaeology folder, clicking "Show all images" will take you to a page displaying all of the images in the Archaeology folder on the same page.

As with your other thread, though, if you tell us what you're actually looking for, someone can almost certainly tell you exactly where to find it.

I want to see all of the graphics that can be used as edges (or borders) for frames and not having an idea of what they might look like or where they might be.

I did try the show all graphics and got a page of nothing. I'll give it another go. perhaps a compatibility setting or something.

I went back to wowprogramming to check it out again. I had clicked the link from too high in the hierarchy and there were no pictures there. I went a bit further in and got a screenful. Thanks for pushing me the right direction on that one!

Yeah, it doesn't recurse into subfolders. It's bascially the difference between List and Extra Large Icons when viewing the contents of a folder in Windows Explorer.

After you put the -console in the shortcut, you need to start the game trough that said shortcut.

Then you need to set your keyboard to on us layout; to do that simply press alt+shift together

Now press the key left of the number 1 (not the numpad one). The console should now show. Enter ExportInterfaceFiles art, press enter and wait a bit. The files should now be stored in yourwowpath/BlizzardInterfaceArt.

Keep in mind you'll need a blp to png converter to convert the files to a viewable format.

Nah, XnView handles .BLP files just fine.

Done Deal!

Blacknight suggested the console and then XnView.

I finally got the console figured out (Sorry, Miru, didn't see your post in time) and got a complete export of the art and code.

From there I used XnView's nConvert program with the following from a command line:
Code:
for /R %I in (*.*) do "E:\Program Files\XnView\nconvert.exe" -out png -o "$%.png" "%I"
To use that command, open a command window and position on the Interface folder, paste, press enter.

It runs a while but created .png's of every .blp file in the folders. Then, use windows search in that same folder for *.png and set the view to tiles. Presto! Every file in a small window to browse.

Thanks again everyone!
