Museum Graphics in Second Life

You can make a sign by going into build and creating a blank rectangle.
Then drag text and images which you have created as a jpeg or even better a tga from inventory onto the sign.

You can also have the exhibit graphic give a notecard when it is touched, see the Pi Glass instructions above.

The notecard will contain text, it can also give an image to the viewer. The notercard can give another notecard to allow the viewer to access deeper information. It can give landmarks that send the viewer to other locations. It can also give a URL to send the viewer to the web.
