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
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
as instructed by my graphic design teacher at an actual art school… (this was something we literally just went over in class today)
for printing: only ever use PDFs or PNGs. JPG completely screws up the quality of the image far worse than png does. (holy crap this is common knowledge) 300dpi/ppi (dots per inch/pixels per inch). CYMK color mode. if you have, like, photographed images (like I dunno, pictures of your dog or a wedding or something) jpg is “okay” as long as the resolution is 300ppi/dpi. but for digital art and design, stick with PDFs. they work out the best. and it’s really easy to save as a PDF anyway. tiffs are also hella, but PDF is the sure-fire way to go.
for digital media: pngs are hella. making a jpg at the highest possible quality also works well if you don’t really care for losing a little bit of data (it still looks as good as a png). RBG color mode. the ppi/dpi doesn’t matter as much so if you want a pretty fancy image that’s really big (as in a lot of pixels) the ppi/dpi doesn’t really matter (and it can make the file a little smaller)
ugh, if you really want to be doing printing, just, uhhh, I dunno, research it and don’t go off of the basis of just one single post.
also check these out. helpful for printing.
