so I’ve just discovered soundrown, it’s sort of like rainymood except there’s 10 different sounds that you can listen to and combine to create whatever sort of environment you want (i.e. campfire and night, which is quite lovely)
are you telling me i could listen to the sound of a coffee shop on fire
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
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
this post goes pretty counter to everything i know about image formats - im pretty sure png is lossless and jpeg isnt??? all i know is that if i tried to turn in jpegs of my work to my graphic design prof he would crucify me. can the science side of tumblr explain this
it’s literally the opposite of good advice
jpeg is for compressing filesizes for the sake of storage/bandwidth and is generally a good pick for uploading online (if the image file uses few enough colours it may even be wise to use gif)
lossless formats like tif and png are for preserving the original work and are good picks for printing it
also, a lot of people misuse the term dpi and describe it exclusively as a setting you choose when printing/saving your work. I’ve even seen people talk about what dpi you should save a file at for uploading online, which is meaningless if it’s not actually going to be printed. dpi is the ratio between the pixel and print dimensions of a file, so it’s not something you just sort out in the final steps when you save it; it’s something you should be accounting for before you even begin work
super protip: use a compressing enhancement tool like pngcrush or pnggauntlet in order to get extra small file sizes out of png without risking lossy compression
gif rarely has a filesize advantage over well compressed png, although most image editor software will only save directly in non-optimally compressed png where gif will be smaller
e: incidentally, png versions of comics can often result in lower filesize than even jpeg depending on the source image, so it’s always worth trying out a well-compressed png for ur comics as well as jpeg
YOU MIGHT GET MARRIED ONE DAY AND GET TO LIVE WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND AND DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH THEM AND DO EVERYTHING TOGETHER LIKE WATCH LATE NIGHT INFORMERCIALS JUST BECAUSE AND SEE THEIR SLEEPY FACE WHEN THEY WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND HAVE A SECRET HANDSHAKE AND BE REALLY WEIRD WITH THEM AND THEY’LL STILL LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT AND IF THE POSSIBILITY OF ALL OF THAT DOESN’T MAKE YOU SMILE IDK WHAT WILL
What the heck is Wentworth?Wentworth is a modern-day Australian drama series remake of Prisoner. It focuses on badass ladies in prison trying to survive while maintaining their sanity and other badass ladies who sometimes fuck shit up because they feel like it. Things get pretty intense.
Afraid it’s not worth your time? Well it’s good enough to get renewed for a second season after only five episodes so maybe you should check it out anyway. Also supportive friendships and lesbians.
