Artist of the Moment


Visit my shop View my bio

My name is Alicia and I have been doing art since 2011. I have been a member of Gasr since shortly after it started and I really enjoy the time I have spent here and all the wonderful people I have met. I started making art because its something I always enjoyed but never felt I was good at it. At least not with pencil and paper. I have found digital art to be comforting and I enjoy making art to share with people and I hope everyone enjoys what I make just as much as I do. I am a 35 year old stay at home mom with 2 kids. Art gives me relief from a 5 year old and an almost 14 year old. Thank you for reading and I hope that me being the artist of the moment will bring me some new buyers and friends!

Hey guys!! So I always always notice that whenever i export any images from GIMP the quality of the image drops so hard and i never understand why..

Here's an example of what I'm talking about



As you can see, on the gyazo screenshot looks more crisp and clear (especially on the pixel ><) Does anyone why that happens/how to fix it?

I can't really compare them because the gyazo screenshot is zoomed in.

However, quality always depends on what your resolution settings are and how you're saving the image.  I don't have GIMP so I'm not sure exactly where you would go, but since it's compared to Photoshop, I'll explain it that way and maybe you can find it in GIMP.

When you're creating a new image/canvas, it allows you to adjust the resolution from the get:

You should be able to go in and edit the resolution settings at any time before you save the image.  72 is default on photoshop and I usually bump it up to about 100 and sharpen the image just a tad for imvu icons, but won't go higher than 300 for any image.  Higher resolution = bigger files size, and since you're making an icon, IMVU won't let you upload it if it's over 50kb.

Saving the image as a .png will keep the quality of the image.  Saving it as any others, such as .gif, .jpg/jpeg, etc. will compress the image.

I know a lot of people use GIMP because they can't afford to buy photoshop, but photoshop cs2 is free if you ever wanted to play around with it. (Click for download link.)
