    what reZ?

    what resolution do you/ should i think about using when starting a digital piece.

    I no this is a bit silly- and might as well ask how long is a piece of sring- but a generla ball park figure.

    If YOU were doing say a self portrait what size canvas would YOU begin with?

    thankyou

    hi dr3w. i work on 600 x 600 and crop out the excess and scale it down when i'm done.

    how about you regular spod-ers?

    It's got to be more than a memory, or is life just a fantasy and a piss in the sand?

    I think it depends on several things.
    1) What is your pic meant to be used for? Do you want to publish it later or is only for fun or for practice?
    2) How fast is your computer? Can it handle higher resolutions without loosing speed?
    3) Are you man enough? (no, no, this is totally stupidly unimportant=)

    So if I start a selfportrait, I usually start at a higher resolution of about 1000 x 800 px. That isn't too much because my AthlonXP 1700+ can handle it quite easily. When it's done I usually reduce the resolution a bit, especially for internet issues down to 500x400 px or equal. But if I know it's ment to be printed later on, to use it for a poster or other bigger things there is no limit but your computer. Just think of what is possible with your machine and do it!!! And HAVE FUN, ALWAYS

    reZolewShuN

    I tend to use 300dpi for projects which are later to be printed for poster/brochure use. I use photoshop 5.5 for any computer graphics I may create. Photoshop has a little known option for "save or web" which compresses the DPI to 72. Pretty rad stuff. Running on a PC isn't too bad, but as I'm sure most of you "into art" use MAC's for everything you do, I'll duck any comments about how much I suck or how lame I am.
