A portrait is a picture associated with a character.

Players choose a portrait for their character at character creation.

Converting Portraits

  1. Place a jpeg into your NWN "portraits" directory (for example, C:\NeverwinterNights\NWN\portraits\Mystic.jpg).
  2. Start NWN and either start a new game or load a saved one.
  3. Start the console by hitting the "~" key (may be "`" on some keyboards) in the upper left hand corner.
  4. Type "Conv" and then Tab which will auto complete the command "Convertportrait".
  5. Add the name of your image. For example "Convertportrait Mypic" (don't add the extension) and hit enter.
  6. This will automatically create all the different files needed. Zip it up and share it with the community.

Changed portraits

BioWare changed some character and NPC portraits originally included with NWN in a patch -- apparently because the artist copied aspects of the images from pictures of celebrities or other sources.
