Re: God's Tea Kettle




Could someone tell me how to make my shirt comp photoshop file small enough to get on here? I can only get it to like 2 MB and as you know it has to be under 500 KB? My shirt comp right now is a copy and paste into a paint jpeg-sad i know.

I can only think of two reasons why your comp would be 2 MB - you're submitting something at a huge resolution (only the print-ready file is high res) or you're submitting in the wrong mode (I think CMYK can inflate file size). Follow these guidelines:

1. 580x580 px
2. RGB mode
3. jpg file format

You should leave it uncompressed so it'll be crisp after the upload. Any compression should be done on Woot's end. Even umcompressed, your image shouldn't exceed 500 kb. Good luck!

Edit: Wait, shirt comp PHOTOSHOP file? Your shirt comp should just be a jpg. The PSD file is the print-ready. I believe Woot allows an upload of up to 20 MB (or was it 10?) through the main form, which should be adequate. If it isn't, you can email it to them instead. When I enter the derby, I generally don't upload the print-ready through the form since it takes so long. If it looks like I have a shot at printing, then I email it to them.
