I used to save all of my images as .png. I never really paid attention to the file sizes. However, when some users started to complain about cache issues and the icons saving as .bmp’s - I decided to save my icons as .jpg’s instead. Then when I tried to upload the .jpg ones to use - they would not load because the file size was over 40KB. However - my .png files were always over 40KB, one I am currently looking at that works in LJ is 108KB.
Now when I save .jpg’s I use the “save for web” option and my file sizes are smaller, but I lose a lot of colors in the process. But why can I have bigger file sizes for .png and not .jpg?
I was wondering whether anyone could direct me to tutorials for Corel Photo-Paint 9. My husband seems to have hidden my manuals for it somewhere:(
I would love some general tutorials but my specific problem is with using Background and Objects with seems to be Corel's equivalent of Photoshop's Layer sytem.
hey everyone! i just had a question about text that has been bothering me for a long time!
i see so many gorgeous icons with text that is small, yet readable and clear. however, whenever i try to make small nice font, it goes all pixely and yuck. i have tried playing with the anti-alias and AV and sharpening it, but it just doesnt work! i know a few days ago someone posted a similar question, but that question was more how to make any text look good. i would really love to know how to make small text look readable and pretty!
