MY GRANDPA NEVER BECAME A FAMOUS ARTIST

BUT I WANT TO MAKE HIM KNOWN

This is one of the sweetest posts I’ve seen on Tumblr. ;u; There are so many stories like your grandfather’s, but it makes me happy to see grandchildren appreciate stuff like this! (Because in many cases, not a lot would — and maybe until they’ve ‘matured’.)

don’t save as jpeg

as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further

if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well

BUT

please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.

this has been a public service announcement

Side note- this is to do with how the image is compressed. In JPEG, they compress colours we can’t see well heaps but not others to make the image smaller, so it screws over reds. PNG is a “lossless” format made specifically for the net- it was made to replace GIF (which only supported up to 256 colours). This is good for the net, but IRL, JPEG is the photograph format. Also, PNG doesn’t support CMYK, which are the colours used for printing. JPEG does. Lastly, you can save JPEG files as hideously compressed files, or not compressed much at all, so that also affects final print quality.
