    elvui panel textures

    So I noticed the area where you can add textures to your chat panels a few days ago but I cannot figure it out. I added the .tga textures I want to use into the elvui texture folder like this

    /Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/ElvUI/media/textures/bluecircles.tga

    and I restarted my game after. Then I go in and put that in the "Panel Texture (left)" box but it just makes a green square show up in my left chat, not the texture. I also tried just doing "Interface/AddOns/ElvUI/media/textures/bluecircles.tga" but neither works. Is this b/c I'm on a mac? or am I doing something wrong?

    Are you sure the tga file's dimensions are powers of two? That's a requirement if you want WoW to load the texture.

    Make sure your image dimensions are a power of two like Treeston mentioned

    256x128 or 512x256 are good dimensions for your image to fit inside the chat frame without becoming distorted.
