Permissions and credits
A very lore unfriendly mod.  No benfit to the game play.  A very silly mod. 

SSE version available

What is this

  • A simple book contains 48 pages of a picture per page. One is located in the Breezehome, and another can be purchased from Riverwood trader Lucan. Two landscape layout Sketchbooks can be purchased from Riverwood trader Lucan for 2400 gold each.
  • Each page can be replaced using your own picture.
  • The picture format must be in PNG or the game will CTD or you'll see this 'missing' image
  • If your picture format is not PNG, please use MSPaint or GIMP to load and save it as the PNG format.  Renaming the file extension to .png will result with the "missing" image page.
  • The picture size should be 713x1080 layout or higher, and no less than 310x471. The layout calculation is X = Y * 0.66 or Y = X / 0.66.  
  • The Sketch book will let you view a landscape formatted picture.  A 16x9 picture  (1920x1080) be rotated 90 degree clockwise, and save it as the PNG format.
  • Each picture book has its own cover, and you can replace the texture with your own or from a book cover mod.  Place the texture files to the textures/clutter/books directory with the following file names.
  • "1 Picture Book of Skyrim"
  • "2 Picture Book of Skyrim"

This mod has the Skysan_PictureBook.ini file for the following book brightness configuration, and you no loner need them in the Skyrim.ini file.  It also has the book zoom configration.  Without this configuration, the picture will look too bright and washed out.  You can adjust this file to your preference.

For the 21x9 screen format such as 2560x1080, fBookLight2Radius=250 worked on my Skyrim.

The book has only 2 pages of pictures, so please add more of your own pictures to the following directory.
Data/Textures/clutter/books/skysan_book for "1 Picture Book of Skyrim"
Data/Textures/clutter/books/skysan_book/1 for "2 Picture Book of Skyrim"
Data/Textures/clutter/books/skysan_book/sk for "1 Sketch Book of Skyrim"
Data/Textures/clutter/books/skysan_book/sk/1 for "2 Sketch Book of Skyrim"
