Tip! Would you like to have the cards in a different order? No problem. After creating the source code, you can change the order in the URL with the "& cards" parameter. Simply put the numbers in a different order and separate them with a comma. The allocation of the numbers can be found above in brackets.

Step 2: Width of the star map

Please enter the width for each selected graphic. This may be between 500px and 2000px.


Step 3: Number of columns (optional)

If you have selected more than one map for graphical display, you can specify the number of columns to display star maps side by side.
If you select a star map, this value is ignored.

Number of columns: :

Important note! Please note that the maximum extension of the overall graphic is 2,000px. If the number of columns in combination with the width of the star map is greater than 2,000px, the number of columns will be corrected automatically.

Step 4: Basic data

Select a heading to be placed above the graphic. If the field is empty, it will not be taken into account.


Note ! You can only use letters, ciphers, spaces and hyphens for the headline. The maximum length of the headline is 60 characters.

Not in all fonts, the Greek characters are available! Therefore, please check the result in advance when changing the font and selecting this language.

Important note! Italic font style is not available for the following fonts: Droid Sans, PTSans Narrow, Tillana

Transparent background and graphic format
Display transparent background instead of background color

Graphic format
JPEG (very small file size, good image quality)
PNG (transparent background possible, large file size)

Important note: When the transparent background is activated, the file format is automatically changed to PNG format (Portle Network Graphics). Only in this file format can the transparency be used. Please note that this setting makes the graphic many times larger than the jpeg format. If you do not want this, please remove the check mark for transparency and set the graphic format to jpeg (File Interchange Format).

This is a sample container with the font color and background color you have selected. This allows you to check the different contrast between background color and text color.

Please note that you will need a modern browser with JavaScript enabled to select the colors.

If the color does not change after your selection, please use the "Show Preview" button.



The following preview diagram is the result of your settings.

File size of the graphic: Please update

Important note on the display! The graphic displayed here will be reduced in size in the preview if the screen width is too small! To get an impression of the correct size, you can click on the preview. This will then be loaded in a new browser window as a separate graphic.
