This is from the support knowledge base, that and the forum search function are excellent tools to find what you need in a hurry.
[ QUOTE ]

In order to set your clan crest, your clan must be at least level 3 and the crest must be 16x12 pixels and saved in 256 color .bmp file format.

Once you have met this requirement, you will need to follow the instructions below:

1. Copy your crest to your Lineage II System folder
2. In the game, access your clan tab by pressing Alt + N
3. Click on the Set Crest button
4. Enter the file name of your crest (including the .bmp extension)
5. Click Set

[/ QUOTE ]

In order to obtain a crest you can either find one online or create it yourself. Creating one yourself (or adapting it from a different image) is highly reccomended as clan tags are an identifier and using an existing one could be dangerous.

As the file will need to be in your L2 System folder, the file name should look something like this.

C:\Program Files\Lineage II\System\Crest.bmp

Of course that could change depending on whether you've moved the game files around or not, but all you'd need to do is check Properties on the file to get a full listing of the file name.

It's been a while since I've added a clan crest, but I believe the game may check for the file name itself (which is why it makes you put it in the system folder). If what I said above does not work then simply input

Crest.bmp

or whatever the name of your crest is when prompted for the file name.

In addition to Silviera's tips, this official guide on emblems might also help you out. Good luck!

You need to add the name of the file itself and .bmp, properties doesn't list that part as it's assumed. So if the file you're trying to add is Crest.bmp you add that to the end of it.

And like I said before, if the full file name doesn't work just type in the Crest.bmp part. According to Mistryl's link that should work fine if the file is in your System folder.

Maybe you'll find it easier to put the image directly in your C drive. So you'll have to type C:\image.bmp (it has to be a bmp). The \ will probably look like that funky W.

A file name like that would work, however the crest needs to be a .bmp file. You can open that .jpeg in any image editting program and click Save As and choose .bmp 256 color format in order to change it.

What Silviera said, and you can use regular paint that comes with Windows.

Tried myself after about 30 mistakes too.

1. From warcry save it to your desktop.
2.copy and paste it to paint
3.save it as image.bmp
4. put it in your c drive . Namte it your clan name, easy to remeber.
5. go to your crest set function under you character in game
6.type in this c:\folder name\image.bmp

Well when you created it and saved it, it had to be saved in BMP format and it usually tells you how many colors to save it in.
