The Picture Standard for BGEE 1 &2

If you have been directed here by another page, please note that despite some pages on this wiki containing portraits from The Picture Standard mod, this is a fanmade modification and does not represent the official product of Baldur’s Gate. However, this mod is frequently used and downloaded by players who enjoy mods and want to try additional artwork for their BG gameplay.

What this modification does (from the mod author)[]

This mod provides you with higher resolution pics for NPCS and for followers (BG1&2) including (!) for some mods like BG1NPC, Rogue Rebalancing, The White Queen, Tales of the Deep Gardens, Innershade, and others.

These pics are true to the content. Because some pictures aren't true to lore (I'm looking at you mods) I address this problem with "The Picture - Alternative" which replaces some of the immersion breaking pics and adds to overall coherence. In other words - The alternative pack is highly recommended. This mod is or should be the picture standard for BGEE. If you find something better, then by all means - use that. But don't fall below this standard.

Pics optimized: 500+!


Vanilla: All pics of BGEE & BG2EE have been optimized! Pics of many popular mods have also been optimized! Alternative: Lore-breaking/not character adequate pics have been replaced by new pics majorly improving coherence = BETTER GAMING EXPERIENCE. Since this also is a preference issue (I mean, I'm the one choosing new pics...) some might find the Vanilla actually better for many reasons. But those reasons can't be because of coherence. If you still want to switch back after installing the alternative, just install Vanilla over it again (and then the followers or whatever...).

Followers/Companions: All vanilla followers lookin' nice and crisp. Uto Followers A & B: Some pics are the original ones (like Sky or Dynaheir), some changes are the same in both (like Coran and Kivan), and then there are differences between the two (like Alora and Mazzy). Just look into the folders and see for yourself, switch around or kick em. It's your game after all.
