Mono-prints on metal collection now available

Posted on | April 9, 2015 | No Comments

wizard3I’ve just posted the collection of mono-prints on metal that I told you about in the last post. I ended up with 23 images instead of the 15 I though I had. I guess I kept making them and making them. They are rather addictive.

To the left is my favorite – The Wizard!

You can see all of them in my new shopify store which I’m just setting up at http://shop.withdigitaleyes.com.

They are under One-of-a-Kind and then Mono-prints on Metal from the navigation bar.

I’ve put my copper books (see the earlier post) and some nostalgic photoart prints (not my abstract stuff) in a new store called Metal and Memories on Etsy.  Use the link or search for withDigitalEyes – our studio name.

Below are two of the photoart prints only available on Etsy.

5 Don’ts for sizing images

Posted on | June 5, 2014 | No Comments

I’m continually surprised by artists who post full size images at 300+ dpi (dots per inch) on the web! It is just asking to be stolen.

  • First – A computer monitor can only show 72 dpi so there is no reason to post an image that is 300 dpi on the web.
  • Second – I don’t even print at 300 dpi – most of my printing is at 150 and that is the file size I use to create. (DPI is a printing term | PPI is a computer image term.)
  • Third – Putting a 12″ by 30″ picture on the web at 300 dpi and pulling the corners in to make it smaller, doesn’t reduce the image contents at  all.
  • Fourth – Don’t put an image over 500 ppi (pixels per inch) except under special circumstances. Zoom in a give detail soptionshots of the image.
  • Fifth – When saving as a JPG, don’t use a high quality setting. Get it as low as you can without loosing image quality. The higher the quality the more information is in the file and the easier it is to be copied and reprinted.

Resolution examples:

Difference the resolution size makes for the actual image size on the screen. The quality of the image however hasn’t dropped.

(I’ve cut into the picture more, but it is all still there.)
