Portraits 🖼

To configure portrait generation you need to create a folder like the one found in name-generator/imgs/portraits. From there, enter the module configuration and select the folder in the Portrait Directory setting.

All images inserted into the directory with the correct format will be available as a portrait to be randomly generated.

Image Name Format

All images in the directory should have their names formatted as the examples in the imgs/portraits folder, the module uses their names as tags for matching pictures, following the rules:

  • All names should be in lower-case;
  • An underline (_) act as a separator for different tags, you can have as many tags as you want for any picture and might use spaces as well;
  • The tags from the entire folder becomes individual filters as well, so adding a new tag to any image also adds a new filter;
  • If no match is found for the applied filters, no image is returned;
